bike tour in WEST KILIMANJARO

3 Days Itinerary


Overview

Our 3 days Kilimanjaro bike tour will take us to West Kilimanjaro plains, which are a region in Northern Tanzania comprising of both Maasai community lands and Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs). The region is filled with acacia woodland and open plains that support a remarkable variety of wildlife and spectacular views of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Moreover, the most common animals in the area include wildebeest, zebra, gazelles, impalas, giraffes and baboons. Depending on the time of the year, elephants can also be observed as the region lies along an elephant corridor linking Kenya’s Amboseli’s National Park & Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Also, this region is home to the nomadic Maasai herdsmen who co-exist with the surrounding wildlife, hence the term "Maasai Land". Given the rich culture of the Maasai people and the variety of wildlife, a cycling tour in this area is ideal for those discerning travellers looking for an unforgettable off-the-beaten-path adventure experience that includes walking, photography, culture and scenery.

Itinerary - Bike Tour in Kilimanjaro

You will be transferred from your hotel in Moshi to Simba Farm where you will start your bike tour in West Kilimanjaro. Our cycle day starts with a downhill slope through the farm as you head toward the main rough road. Then, we will follow the main rough road through the Ngare Nairobi village and cycle along the Ndarakwai Conservancy border towards the West Kilimanjaro airstrip. We will then follow the main dirt road towards the TingaTinga village. Finally, our ride will end at the Olpopongi Maasai Village where we will be spending the night. Upon arrival at the Olpopongi Maasai Village you will be welcomed by a traditional Maasai dance, before having lunch and settling into your Maasai-hut style rooms. You will also engage in a Maasai cultural tour in the evening before ending your day by enjoying a great dinner around a bonfire.                                           

Distance covered: 28km

Today we will start off cycling early in the morning and proceed south towards the Ngabobo Village. An early start is good to ensure we cover enough distance before the sun comes out. Today’s path is very interesting as we will be cycling through the dry and arid open grasslands, an environment completely different from the lush, green slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro which we have left behind. Also, wildlife such as wildebeest, giraffes, zebra and elephants can be seen in the morning when we start cycling. Today’s route will be shorter but a bit more challenging due to the terrain and weather. To finish, the last part of the path is a gradual ascent on gravel road as we cycle through the Ngabobo Village towards the lodge. Today we will be spending the night at the Maasai Lodge.                                                                                                                                                                          

Distance covered: 21km

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Included

Today’s route takes us to a new vegetation zone as we leave the arid zone and proceed towards the greener slopes of Mt. Meru. The slope is a gentle ascent through gravel roads as we head towards Momella near Arusha National Park. Then we will cycle through streams of water flowing down the slopes of Mt.Meru as we head towards the village of NgareNanyuki, a lively small village through which we will cycle towards Arusha National Park. As we approach the park, we might be lucky enough to see several giraffes along the way. Finally, our route today ends on the edge of the Arusha national park. Then, after resting a bit, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Moshi.
