Since 2007, we have been crafting exceptional active-travel experiences in Southern Africa. This year we are proud to announce not only our new portfolio of Exceptional Journeys for South Africa, but also brand new partnerships and trips in Namibia, Victoria Falls Zimbabwe and the great plains of East Africa.

get rewarded - ECOMILES

For every mile you travel under your own steam (cycle, hike or paddle) on a Bike & Saddle Journey, you stand to earn one ecomile (the equivalent of one US Dollar). Ecomiles can only be donated to a charity or worthy cause which you will encounter on all our journeys. In collaboration with our Partners, we will match your donation of Ecomiles with our own. Thinking to do the longer loop? Well now you have a great incentive. Burn Carbs, not Carbon - and pass the rewards on. Help make our world a better place for all.

South Africa

Join us on any number of bespoke multi-day trips in South Africa's breathtaking wine-lands region near Cape Town; continue onwards to the wonderful Garden Route towns of Wilderness, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay. And return to Cape Town on the Atlantic for a grand finale of scenic splendours and culinary indulgences! 

Zimbabwe Victoria Falls

Our six night seven day Victoria Falls Journey starts with two nights at Imbabala Safari Lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River before discovering the luxurious Elephant Camp situated on a private concession within and bounded by the Masuwe River and the Zambezi gorges. A visit to Victoria Falls is not replete without a stay at the majestic colonial Victoria Falls Hotel, the last two days of this superb African journey.


Namibia is perhaps our own favorite destination in Southern Africa with a landscape and people arguably unsurpassed in unspoilt beauty. From the Skeleton Coast and the Namib Desert, to the lush bush in the Northern Okavango and Etosha deltas. Together with Bike & Saddle Namibia, we offer a selection of unforgettable journeys.

East Africa

Together with our partner in wildlife conservation, Big Life, Bike & Saddle offers an amazing cycle safari in the Amboseli-Tsavo-Kilimanjaro ecosystem of East Africa.

Ecomiles has helped us to accomplish many of our development goals. They inspire everyone to care for the planet.
