An exhilerating cycling and wildlife safari
For centuries people have explored the lakes and plains of East Africa on two feet. We explore this incredible region on two wheels. Starting from Arusha we cycle out across banana and coffee plantations before entering the Great Rift Valley and the grasslands where Masai cattle graze. After spending time at a homestead we swap our bikes for 4WDs and go on safari in the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. The final days of mountain biking are hugely rewarding as we ride to Lake Natron and the awe-inspiring active volcano Ol Doinyo Lengai, passing only Masai with their cattle and the wildlife they live alongside.

Things to do in Bolivia

Surprisingly enough, when it comes to the most popular destinations for travelling, Bolivia is not a country on the list. Well, your loss. There are a few negative factors which keep on pushing the tourist away from the country, such as a lack of public transport and the necessity to get visa, which might set you back 150$ dollars. However, I dare say that the astounding scenery awaiting you will make amends for all inconveniences. The combination of high-rise mountains, jungles filled with wild life and the unfathomable variety of within a single country is what makes Bolivia so unique and irresistible to visit. Here are the top things not to miss out on.
