Mount Kilimanjaro-Tanzania

See rural Africa at its best as you experience the views, history, culture, and its friendly people first hand. An aid with all the arrangements and our backup staff will help you to cater for all cycling needs. You will cycle around Moshi, Arusha, Mt Kilimanjaro, and Mt. Meru and see all its different faces.

DAY 01


  • Meet our staff  who will brief you on 3 Days 2 Nights Cycle Challenge in Tanzania and later transfer to Moshi. 

  • Overnight at Kitolie Home & Lodge.

DAY 02

Moshi to Olpopongi Maasai Village (77kms)

  • We leave our hotel and cycle downhill for the first few kilometers on tarmac roads into Moshi. 

  • We then continue for about 30 kms on tarmac and on somewhat rolling terrain towards Arusha.

  • We turn towards the bustling Maasai town of Sanyu Juu and continue cycling through lush landscapes with only a few moderate hills. 

  • We will be greeted by local children as we cycle from village to village. The scenery gradually becomes more arid and scrub-like as the road surface changes from smooth asphalt to a more challenging, bumpier dirt road. Banana and mango plantations will be replaced by more typical,  Tanzanian bush-land vegetation, mostly dominated by the impressive acacia trees.

  • We reach our overnight camp at the Olpopongi Maasai Village, where we will have the opportunity to explore the village and be given an insight into the authentic Maasai Way of life through the museum they keep.

  • We will be treated to a barbecue dinner around the campfire and entertained by the Maasai dancing and singing.

DAY 03

Olpopongi Maasai Village to Arusha (76kms)

  • We start today by cycling through an area, sandwiched between Mt. Kilimanjaro and Mt. Meru (4565m), which is an active volcano.The volcanic landscape offers a striking difference to the lush surroundings of Kilimanjaro. There is a possibility of wildlife along the route today including Giraffe, Impala, Baboon, monkey and variety of birds.  

  • As we cycle through this parched landscape we will witness everyday life as we pass by a number of Maasai villages. Cycling becomes much smoother again when we reach the not too busy, Nairobi – Arusha road.
    The price to pay for the smoother surface is a number of medium grade climbs. 

  • A long descent awaits us as we finish the day by cycling into the bustling town of Arusha. 

  • Overnight at Arusha Tourist Inn.
