Itinerary - Bike Tour in Tanzania

You will be picked up from Kilimanjaro airport or any other arrival point by a One Bike guide who will welcome you and transfer you to your hotel. This day you will get all needed information for the trip. The rest of the day could be used for resting and exploring the city of Moshi.

From our One bike shop as a starting point, we will cycle to the west side of Mt. Kilimanjaro. We will feel both, big tarmac and dirty gravel road, while we are riding first, through Chagga villages, banana and coffee plantations, as well as green lush forests. After that, as we are going more west, the land becomes less overgrown with plants, with more arid open plains. That is the land of Maasai people, and we will find ourselves in a totally different landscape and culture. While we are cycling small uphills and downhills, we might share the road with different wildlife species. We will end today’s ride in Ngabobo village where we will overnight.

This cycling day will be long, mostly on the dirty and dusty road, but without big uphills. We will cycle through Ngasurai open plains, the migratory path for wildlife, especially elephants who are coming from Amboseli National park in Kenya. As we enter the main tarmac road to Arusha, riding will become easier. We will pass through few villages with the magnificent view of the mountain Meru in the background. We will spend the night in a lodge in Arusha.

This will be the longest ride of the tour, but a less demanding once since we will cycle mostly on the tarmac undulating road. We will pass a number of colorful Tanzanian villages with their strong culture and traditions. The end of the route will be on the border of Tarangire national park, where there is the largest concentration of the elephants in Tanzania. There we will have time to rest and enjoy in Roika Tented lodge where we will spend the night.

Today’s ride will take us through some of the most beautiful highlights of Tanzanian northern circuit. We will pass the wildlife corridors between Tarangire national park and Lake Manyara, a number of Maasai traditional settlements, and ride along with the most beautiful views of the Great Rift Valley. The ride will be on the tarmac road until the last few kilometers of the dirt road on the way to the Migunga tented camp for overnight.

The final day of driving will be the toughest but the most rewarding. The first stop will be at Lake Manyara national park gate, from where we will proceed up to the steep Great Rift Valley escarpment. On the way to the top, we will stop for a breathtaking view of Lake Manyara and its surroundings. From there through colorful Karatu town we will be cycling until the end of the tour, the Ngorongoro conservation area gate. We will organize a transfer to the lodge for where you will enjoy a well-deserved rest and celebrate the end of this demanding challenge. 

You will be able to sleep and rest well in your hotel. Transfer from the hotel to the airport or another place of departure from Moshi will be organized for you.
