1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Biking itself and meeting the locals on the way was fascinating enough, but camping on Masai grounds and talk to the villagers was a bonus on top. I definitely enjoyed the variety of biking tracks and terrains and the game drives were fantastic.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Well, be in good condition, have a bit of biking practise beforehand and go for some uphills. Otherwise you will struggle a bit... Bring a camera with a decent zoom. If you want luxury this is not for you!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The thought, brought up by our tour leaders, that sponsoring/supporting one institution (e.g. a school) would certainly affect a non-sponsored institution nearby is an intriguing one and made me feel that the amount of impact and benefit was well chosen for this tour.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

I would go again without hesitation. A perfectly organized tour with enough space for individual changes. Well done!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The most memorable part of our vacation was the time spent in a very remote area of Tanzania with the Masai. We were privileged to visit their homes and witness their day to day living. An amazing experience!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Go for it! I would thoroughly recommend this trip, but be aware that the African sun is an added challenge on the bike.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

This tour operator is a very environmentally aware company. They use local produce and employ local people at every opportunity and offer sound advice for ways to help the poorer communities in the long term.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

A fantastic adventure with great variety of landscape and cycling terrain. Cycling is the ultimate way to visit remote parts of the amazing African continent.
