On Friday the 26th & Saturday the 27th of July 2013, Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park experiences an influx of mountain bikers, all riding to help raise funds for the parks waterhole management and maintenance by participating in ‘Pumping Legs for Water’. The ride starts from Main Camp where there is a briefing the evening of Thursday July 25th. To participate in the ride cyclists must complete a registration form and pay an entry fee of $150 July 8th, 2013.

In addition to the entry fee cyclists are encouraged to seek sponsorship. Cyclists need to make their own arrangements for accommodation and the registration does not cover any Parks fees for accommodation or entry; these must be paid to Parks on arrival at Main Camp, however Africa Adventure Consultants can arrange everything for participants!

On day 1 cyclists ride from Hwange Main Camp to Ngweshla picnic site which is 55km. The route for day 2 has yet to be confirmed but will start and end at Main Camp and will cover 40 – 50 km. This event is not a race and for safety reasons cyclists will be riding in groups of 20 to 25 riders. Each group will be accompanied by a leading and trailing vehicle with armed escorts.

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of?
