    5.0 - Excellent

    One of the most memorable trips I've done - challenging, inspiring and fun! If you love remote places, fascinating scenery and wildlife, and don't mind early mornings and some tough cycling, then you will love this trip. What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Sunrise over the dunes at Soussevlei, seeing a zebra gallop across the road as we cycled along, the amazing night skies, hearing jackals wandering through the camp at night... too many to listWhat did you think of your group leader?Sven, Roger & Ronnie were all very organised, patient & worked their socks off to make sure we had an excellent trip. Incredibly knowledgable about Namibia, great cooking skills, supportive during the cycling, and so enthusiastic about showing us their country. Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Ladies, take your own saddle - all the hire bikes have men's saddles. Don't underestimate the difficulty - distances quoted are not huge, but it's a lot more tiring cycling on untarred roads than on tarmac. On the plus side, you will definitely bond with your fellow travellers as you compare notes re sore backsides! May be worth bringing energy bars, if you have favourites - fruit & snacks are supplied regularly during the cycling, but you may want to supplement them. They also provided isotonic mix for adding to water, but again, may not be what you're used to, so if you have a favourite electrolyte powder mix, bring that. Make sure you check what adaptor you need for Namibian electrical sockets (chunky 2 or 3 pin plugs, not part of most "universal" adaptors - same as South Africa) It was unusually hot for April when we went, but just in case, bring a long-sleeved lightweight top you are happy cycling in, and possibly longish shorts.  Is there anything else you would like to add?Don't be put off - provided you're looking for adventure & not luxury, you'll almost certainly love this trip. Namibia is fascinating, and every day was different.

    4.0 - Good

    Beautiful desert scenery to cycle through, everyday slightly different. Some hard going on the bikes with a lovely meal at the end . Seeing real wild animals at the water holes just yards from you. Camping under starry sky's and listening to the noises of the night. What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Seeing dunes at sunrise and being able to wander around and photograph them . Cycling down Gemsberg pass with its wonderful views. Sitting watching the theatre of action as the animals perform at the water hole in the evenings.What did you think of your group leader?Swen , Roger and Rob were amazing and worked so well as a team. The camp was run very efficientantly . The food was excellent cooked over the fire on the evenings. Roger was always on hand to help with bike problems or animal tracks. Also all were so knowledgeable about the area and Namibia in General.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Train hard for tough cycling on loose gravel and sand. The heat and long gravel roads are hard going . Take lots of sun sceen, your own saddle and binoculars if you want to see animals closer when on safari.Is there anything else you would like to add?Well worth the tough going as the scenery kept your mind off the gravel! If you enjoy camping but want the luxury of having the tents put up for. Enjoy a challenging cycle ride and want to see wild animals then this is the trip.

    5.0 - Excellent

    I thought after the first day of cycling I was going to hate this trip, but it got much much better. Being on the ground cycling through the dunes or with a random zebra crashing through a fence and bounding across the road in front of you is an amazing experience. Well worth the sometimes challengin cycling.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The scenery is amazing. You can feel like you are the only person in Namibia as you don't see people or cars for very long periods of time. Cycling gives you a feeling of being imersed in your surroundings that you won't get from sitting in a bus all day.What did you think of your group leader?Sven, Rodger and Robbie were extremely organised and got us going on time every day down to the minute. The food was beyond expectataions, expecially the fish curry. All 3 were knowledgeable about the landscape, animals and history of namibia.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Probably best to bring a gel cover for your seat. The roads can be bumpy on your bum. Also a good idea to prepare yourself for riding on sandy gravel roads. A bit tougher than I expected. Well worth it though!
