Tanzania Adventure Travel
Tanzania on Two Wheels
This trip is a truly unique experience in Northern Tanzania and perfect for those who seek adventure. Combining a triumvirate of mountain biking, hiking and traditional safari game drives, our Tanzania adventure travel allows participants more time and access to first hand experiences, rather than ‘standard’ driving only safaris. Incorporating the greater Tarangire ecosystem, the Great Rift Valley and Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro– this trip is designed for those that have an adventurous spirit and want to engage in their environment. This trip will expose you to an excellent variety of habitats that include rolling hills, open plains, ground water forest, and massive, colourful craters.
We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.
These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”
“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”
“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”
“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”
“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”

Day by Day
Arrive in Tanzania and settle in at your tropical hotel, which doubles as a working coffee farm. The Legendary Lodge is the perfect place to unwind after your long flight, so kick back, relax and get ready for tomorrow!
Start your scenic ride from Makayuni junction and head towards Chem Chem Safari Lodge, which borders the Greater Tarangire ecosystem. For tonight, enjoy drinks by the campfire.
Today begins with game viewing in Tarangire National Park, which stretches 2,500 square kilometres. From the inside of safari vehicles, marvel at the park’s incredible wildlife and prepare for an exciting ride. (To give you an idea, the park hosts 1 elephant per kilometre!)
Start the day pedaling along the Great Rift Valley towards your scenic lunch spot—a waterfall! After refueling, continue your ride to Lake Manyara.
Head to a fully functioning farm in the Ngorongoro Highlands, your home for the next two nights. Enjoy lunch and dinner on the property, with the option to venture on a short loop ride through the neighbouring villages.
A dawn crater drive brings us face-to-face with lions, black rhino, massive bull elephants and hyena (and fantastic shots of the sunrise over the crater walls.) The excitement continues into the afternoon at the base of Mt. Makarot where guides provide insight into the Maasai way of life.
This morning you’ll say your goodbyes and be driven to the Manyara Airstrip. We strongly recommend a post trip to the Serengeti to witness the great migration and experience this amazing National Park.
Legendary Lodge, Arusha
Set in lush tropical gardens on a working coffee farm just outside Arusha, the Legendary Lodge features 12 beautiful garden cottages, each with an inspiring view of Mount Meru from its own private veranda.

Chem Chem, Tarangire National Park
The Lodge lies in a 4000 hectare privileged Wildlife Management Area between Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara in northern Tanzania. Eight stylish and secluded tent-style suites evoke the spirit of a vintage contemporary safari lodge. The principle house of the Lodge offers a full service gourmet restaurant, a lounge bar complete with outdoor fireplace and a fully stocked library. View hotel website »
Lake Manyara Tree Lodge, Lake Manyara National Park
As the only lodge in Lake Manyara National Park, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is romantically exclusive with only 10 elegantly intimate stilted tree house suites. Located within a remote corner of the reserve, Lake Manyara Tree Lodge is cradled within the boughs of an ancient mahogany forest. Furnishings and decor combine with the natural beauty of this incredibly breathtaking reserve and compliment the cool leafy area that surrounds it. View hotel website »
Gibbs Farm, Karatu
A working farm located on the forested slopes of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. It comprises of warm rustic luxury; the Farmhouse and 20 ensuite cottages are the heart of the farm. Cozy living rooms and reading corners are just steps away from the dining room, bar, and gift shop. Fireplaces fill the Farmhouse with a verandah and floral garden that invite a sweeping view of the valley below. Organic coffee is grown, roasted and processed on the Farm, and a 10-acre organic fruit and vegetable garden provides 90% of the ingredients needed for fresh, home-cooked meals. View hotel website »
Daily biking distances usually vary from 15 to 35 km (10 to 21 mi.). The terrain is generally flat, with a few hills along the way. The biking is all on dirt roads. Walks are on animal pathways and are hilly in places and at higher altitudes at the Crater.
