If you’ve ever been curious about Mabaruli, the legendary big tusker from the Kruger National Park, you’ll have plenty of time to hear about Big Foot while seated securely on the back of your saddle.
Co-owner of Mabaruli African Safaris, Sven Strohmenger, will be your personal cycling guide and take you on a nine-day adventure from Windhoek through the Namib-Naukluft mountain area, Sossusvlei and Swakopmund, and back again; or on a 13-day safari from Windhoek to Swakopmund, past Brandberg, Twyfelfontein, through the Etosha and Waterberg national parks and back to Windhoek.
Then there’s the ultimate 15-day Namibian Highlight tour, covering, well, all the highlights of the country – from south to north. Mabaruli also offers tailor-made tours and self-drives. Now if only we could see Mister Mabaruli cycle himself… wishful thinking, right?
