Cycling Safaris in Uganda

March 12, 2020 - 3 minutes read

Adventure Consults realizes that most (if not all) travelers don’t enjoy spending lots of time in motor vehicles or motorized boats. As a result, we’ve decided to introduce cycling safaris as a way to complement the safari experience for those traveling with us in Uganda.

Bike safaris are certainly not new. It’s how we get you pedaling through the African bush that makes this adventure unique.

Anyone can participate in our cycling trips with a little training, tips and advice — you don’t need to be a Tour de France winner or cycling expert! Riding through the national parks and countryside, and beside the many lakes and rivers, is one of the best adventures that Uganda has to offer.

Our cycling safaris are coupled with wildlife viewing and lots of interaction with local communities. All tours are fully supported with back-up vehicles, snacks and guides who are also experienced in bicycle mechanics. Support vehicles are available for you and your bike at any time you decide to take a break.

Primates & Wildlife Cycling Adventure

A 9 day/8 nights adventure through Western Uganda. This will enable you see the most spectacular scenery, interact with the local communities, enjoy a water safari, follow the elusive Chimpanzees and track the endangered Mountain Gorillas. This package can be narrowed down to 4 days/3 nights or expanded to cover more fascinating areas to suit travelers’ interests.


Lake Mburo Wild Cycling Experience

Smallest of Uganda’s savannah national parks, Lake Mburo features markedly different fauna from parks like Bwindi or Kibale. Hippo, crocodile and a variety of water birds frequent the five lakes within the park, while the fringing swamps hide secretive wetlands wildlife like the sitatunga, as well as the red, black and yellow papyrus gonalek bird. Mburo is also the best place in Uganda to spot cape eland, zebra, topi and impala (for which Kampala is named).


Jinja Cycling Adventure

Uganda’s adventure capital offers more than just whitewater rafting or bungee jumping — you can also cycle along the banks of the River Nile! If you have an extra day or two to spare during your visit to Uganda, please join us on this off-the-beaten-path cycling experience. One route takes you on single tracks through villages and small farms, with excellent views of the river along the way. The other route starts with the Bugembe viewpoint and its panoramic view of Lake Victoria, before heading into Jinja town and the celebrated Source of the Nile.
