Come Join us for this guided & supported all inclusive Mountain Bike Tour.
Wild Coast Resort – Msikaba – Waterfall Bluff – Cathedral Rock – Mkambati – Mtentu – including a FULL MOON Beach Ride from Mtentu to Port Edward!!
Day 1 – Wild Coast Casino to Msikaba (Inland Route)
An early start from the Wild Coast Casino Resort we head out on a series of natural single track trails we have pieced together to skirt around the numerous river gorges and Transkei obstacles.
We ride through to Nyameni Falls – our first stop. The cycle then continues to Mtentu River where we will cross into Mkambati Nature Reserve where you can look out for some animals and amazing bird life.
We will take our second stop at Horseshoe Falls where we will have a lunch break before we make the final climb and decent to cross over the Msikaba River at the Southern flank of the reserve.
The final push will take us to Vonnies Rest – our home for the next 2 nights.
Day 2 – Msikaba Loop to Waterfall Bluff & back (Inland then Coastal)
Today we cycle to the Vulture Colony and take the inland loop to Luphuthana where we will dismount our bikes and hike to Waterfall Bluff and Cathedral Rock, where we will take a lunch break at these 2 ionic landmarks of the Wild Coast.
Our return journey will take us along the coast on our bikes from Luphuthana to Goss Point, where we ride the beach and cross the small river at this beautiful bay. Our ride continues to Port Governor where we have our second beach crossing and head back to along the coastal trails to Vonnie’s Rest.
Tonight you will get to kick back and relax while we get delicious pizza’s cooked in our traditional wood fire oven – a terrific way to spend our final night before we move on to Mtentu Lodge the following morning.
Day 3 – Msikaba to Mtentu (Coastal Route)
Today’s ride is a lot shorter but will include a number of fantastic stops where we can spend a bit more time enjoying the surroundings. As we pass through Mkambati Nature Reserve we will visit waterfalls and river gorges, coastal forest and grasslands whilst game viewing along the way.
We will still have some day light hours when we arrive at our destination so take a walk to the local beach for a couple of hours of relaxation or enjoy the views from the lodge over the Indian Ocean.
Day 4 – Mtentu to Wild Coast Casino (Full Moon Night Beach Ride)
Today we will take the canoes up the Mtentu Estuary, with its high steep cliffs towering above the river it truly is a magnificent experience. When we get to the top of the estuary we will take a hike up one of the gorges to a magnificent waterfall that falls into a pool ideal for cooling off on a hot summers day.
On our return back at the lodge we will have some lunch and then relax while we wait for the sun to set and the moon to rise for our night time beach cycling adventure. We should start our full moon ride just after 8pm, transversing the hard packed beach sands of the Northern Kei to Port Edward by the light of the full moon! A truly unique experience. We will finish our ride with a celebratory drink or two and some late evening snacks.
