Cycle Africa Tours is an owner-run and managed tour company based and registered in Cape Town which specializes in bicycle tours in South Africa. Single trail mountain biking, wilderness experiences and road cycling is our forte. Cycle Africa has recently been joined by Steve’s brother Alan, who will be heading up the adventure motorcycle department. All our tours can be offered as a TAILOR-MADE package for yourself or your group. We also offer holiday travel within South Africa.
Being local South Africans we strive to use hand-picked accommodations and quaint restaurants and believe the local entrepreneur should benefit and not always the large chains where you, our guests are just numbers. Not only does South Africa boast a diversity of cultures, fauna, and flora but we at Cycle Africa Tours believe that “Local is lekker” and are proud to show the rest of the world that we can offer a quality experience.
Cycle Africa Tours is owned and run by Steven and Alan Brown, keen outdoors persons and both registered National Adventure Guides within their specialty. Steve spent many years working in Namibia’s Etosha National Park and later at Lianshulu Lodge in the Caprivi Strip as resident ranger/guide before returning to Cape Town, only to leave the southern hemisphere by sailboat and virtually circumnavigating Africa before heading to Germany. Here he started his cycling, doing long-distance trips with a pannier loaded touring bicycle, and learning the language. After eleven years Steve returned home and got straight into the tourism industry. During Steve’s travels through Namibia, he met and later married Viola, a German lady who has now moved to Cape Town and keeps an eye on things. Because of this extensive outdoor experience, every tour will be planned to the last detail, ensuring their guests have the best possible experience.
For the Browns, it is a pleasure to introduce even the most inexperienced guest to the wonders of traveling in South Africa. Our commitment and enthusiasm for not only adventure travel, but also South Africa as a holiday destination for families and honeymoon couples are strong. As a guest, you will feel our passion for detail, quality, and affordability.
Whatever your interest: road, mountain, gravel bike cycling or adventure biking. Our groups are small and can be tailor-made to your requirements. How often do you see a tour but don't book because the groups are too big? Those days are past. Remember, you too have a place with us. Please feel welcome to contact us should you have any questions.
