About the company's mission:
The Africa Cycling Mission is to provide clients with an unforgettable encounter with the authentic nature and culture of Kenya; the Masai Mara villages, tea plantations, rough gravel roads, "friendly wildlife" like giraffes, zebras, impala's, hippos, flamingos etcetera that we encounter on the roads or at the lakes, and.., to meet the "big-five" during the game drives by 4x4 vehicle.
Africa Cycling provides a carefree tour. The tour-master is on bike together with the group and a safety car follows the cyclers on short distance, in order to give aid in case of a bike- or physical problem.
