About the tour

Location and arrival:

We will be starting our tour from Wilderness Safaris’ Damaraland Camp. Cars are parked here for the duration of the tour.

You will be transferred to the wild bush camp from here.

Accommodation:

The first three nights will be spent camping at our wild bush camp. Each rider will have his/her own tent with stretcher, mattress and bedding. Couples will share a tent. On the last evening we will be hosted in the beautiful Damaraland Camp by the Wilderness Safaris team. The lodge has 11 rooms. Rooms will be shared so we recommend joining the tour as a couple or partnering up with a friend.

Meals and Drinks:

All meals, drinks and cycling snacks are included in your tour package. If you have any special dietary requirements or drinks requests please be sure to inform the organisers or indicate it on your entry form.

The cycling safari:

The mountain-biking routes follow mostly single track game trails and jeep tracks. The terrain is hilly, there are rocks (many of them) and some sandy river patches. The routes cover approximately 40 – 50 km daily. The tour is recommended for mountain-bikers with moderate to advanced technical skills and fitness levels.

The wild:

During the course of the trip you will go on multiple nature drives and rhino tracking excursions, or perhaps even be lucky enough to spot one from your saddle. We have also in the past had numerous encounters with other wildlife such as elephants and even the lions. You are at all times accompanied by an experienced Wilderness Safaris guide. This tour is wild! In the best possible way.

What do you do when something as important as an entire species is standing at the edge of a cliff ready to tumble at any given second? Do you stand by and watch or do you rally, roar, riot, rush, run and ride to save them?

For the second time in as many years, cyclists joined a group of like-minded individuals, passionate about the plight of Namibia’s black rhino, on this exceptional quest.

What does it take to save the rhino? The list is long – tracking teams, vehicles, food, uniforms, binoculars, support staff and supporters, among many other things. But the most essential element needed to save the rhino is passion.

They have a tough job. But who can help? Those of us who can exert ourselves physically, or have cash or time to spare. What can we do? We can keep talking. We can facilitate the conversation. We can keep shining light on the problem and the issues at hand as brightly and for as long as possible.

The 2019 RMB Ride for Rhinos, which took place in July, marked the fifth year that riders donned their cycling gear and got on their bikes to pedal through the rugged, but scenic terrain of the Palmwag Concession.
