At the Kalahari Red Dunes Lodge and Hohenstein Lodge we provide our guests with several mountain bikes free of charge. Thus, Africa travellers can also go on their own adventure, outside of the guided activities, and explore the Namibian countryside.
A bike tour in the Kalahari leads you through the complex natural environment of Africa: The different vegetation and climate zones that come together here offer a variety of different views. Our cyclists can experience an African cycle tour that will take them into the vastness of the savannah – golden grass on red sand – whilst also going over stony ground and past tall acacias. While mountain biking, you’ll often see animals like the gemsbok or impala. This outdoor experience therefore becomes your very personal Africa safari.
In the Erongo, the savannah and mountain landscape alternate with one another. An exciting natural spectacle, where you’ll be surprised by how variable the mountain terrain is. Because on the banks of the picturesque rivers in the valleys of the Erongo mountains, you’ll sometimes see steep mountain faces, sometimes surreal rock castles, which look as if they have been piled up and balanced by human hands, but are in fact the result of natural processes. Thus with their natural, unspoiled originality, the mountains of the Erongo are a fascinating sight to see. They are impressive due to their oversized nature – peaks measuring over 2000 metres in height, partly made of volcanic rock and with almost vertical cliffs, allow the mountain biker to experience a completely new kind of landscape on a bike tour through Africa.
We would therefore recommend an excursion on the bicycles provided at the lodges to anyone who is looking for a sports challenge or fancies heading out on an African adventure using their own initiative or simply wants to combine the impressive diversity of the Namibian countryside with physical activity.
