Kilimanjaro 5895m MTB Expedition Summary

Onbike’s Mountain bike Kilimanjaro expedition offers the rare opportunity to ride your bike from the roof of Africa, into it’s plains and amongst it’s wildlife. Crank up the volume of that sneaky Johnny Clegg track on your playlist to set the scene for this one. We are about to send it down the highest mountain in Africa!

The Experience

The opportunity to combine the best of trekking and mountain biking in one rewarding and possibly a life changing experience. Be part of an expedition team lead by qualified and experienced guides with multiple successful summits under their belt. Ride through and experience the seven geological zones from the lush rain forest to the alpine desert environments and glacial zone.  Ride from the roof of Africa and down into her plains and top it off with a two day MTB safari.  An option to join the expedition excluding the MTB safari is also available.


The Ride

Trek & ride to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro and downhill into the African plains. You might ask yourself: “Now who owns a bike and would not want to do this?” We add a further adventurous twist to this expedition. After your shot at lifetime bragging rights and descending 4095m, it’s time to rest our bones as we transfer back to our hotel before transfer to the Arusha National Park.  We add a big cherry on top at the end of our itinerary with an African mountain bike safari, accompanied by a wildlife ranger. We know and love Mt Kilimanjaro! With 20 years experience on Kilimanjaro and multiple successful summits in our arsenal, we are very confident in our ability to give you the best possible experience and support on the mountain.
