Holiday Information

A unique mountain bike holiday in South Africa and Botswana full of incredible contrasts including a luxury mountain lodge, thrilling singletrack, vast African wilderness and intimate wildlife viewing.
Starting in the Waterberg we base ourselves at Summerplace Farm, nestled in the beautiful mountains of Limpopo. Riders of all levels will have fun here. We have access to a network of trails including rough singletrack and open farm roads. Our next location is Leshiba where we will discover a private game reserve that has one of South Africa’s highest biodiversity of flora and fauna with unrivalled scenery, unspoilt nature, and a rich variety of wildlife. We will explore a large network of single track and jeep track on the reserve, the riding is exhilarating and fun.
A transfer takes us over the Platjan border to Botswana. We will be traversing across privately owned concessions, over vast areas of unfenced wildness, giving us the opportunity to experience the diversity of this area. It is dominated by open savannah and the thick river vegetation of the mighty Limpopo River. Our accommodation here is a combination of wilderness camps and a private lodge with pool area. All offer good comfort without distracting from a true wilderness experience! The riding is a relaxed affair and we’ll often encounter elephants, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and occasionally see lions and leopards.
There will of course be a back-up vehicle and armed riding guides with us at all times. During our time in Botswana we will have an option to undertake game drives in the afternoons to ensure you get the very most of this incredible area and see these elusive animals up close.
