Biking does not get better than what is available in Tanzania. There are thousands of miles of single-track routes to explore. Most of these paths are nice and smooth and easy to ride. Obviously, there are more challenging routes for the adventurer. The mountain bike rides are designed to give you both wildlife and cultural experience.
