This is a unique way to get around Victoria Falls, see sights and experience the area in a way that not many visitors do.The guided bicycle tours are done in three trips – morning, mid-morning and afternoon. Each tour lasts about 2 hours. The terrain in the area is generally fairly flat (no mountains around), but a few inclines are to be expected in a few places.
Please bear in mind that it can get extremely hot in Victoria Falls during summer (check our calendar), so of all the trips to pick from, we would recommend the morning tour best, but it still can be quite arduous. If you have a slightly energetic nature and a bit of extra time in the Falls we would recommended doing this activity.
The trip begins with a pickup from your pre-arranged meeting place (usually your lodge or hotel in town) to The Lookout Café. You meet your tour guide and this is where bikes and water bottles are issued.
Your tour starts with cycling along the Batoka gorge with the raging rapids of the Zambezi River down below. Your guide takes you down to the upper river, into the wilderness and past the Big Tree – a famous massive baobab tree which is said to be over 3500 years old. Your guide will share his knowledge of the unique fauna and flora of the region. Keep an eye out for impala, warthog, monkeys, baboons, an abundance of birdlife and even the mighty elephant!
The Morning Victoria Falls Bike tour departs at 7am (summer) and 8am (winter), returning to the Lookout Café at around 9am (summer) and 10am (winter).
The Mid-day Victoria Falls Bike tour departs at 11am, returning to the Lookout Café at around 1pm.
The Afternoon Victoria Falls Bike tour departs at 3pm, returning to the Lookout Café at around 5pm.
