Corporate package

 

The Cycle Mashatu Luxury/Corporate Tour combines the rustic with the luxury to produce an unforgettable wildlife experience for your clients. This tour is similar to the Cycle Mashatu Wilderness trail in terms of the riding but the accommodation is more luxurious. This trip is custom made and the choice of accommodation is up to you. Guests can choose a combination of camping under the stars, tenting in style and living it up in luxury suites…or just staying in one place and enjoying creature comforts without distracting from the wildness cycling experience.

Based in the Northern Tuli Reserve of Botswana, the Luxury/Corporate package provides a unique opportunity to ride at leisure along ancient elephant migration paths, cycle through vast herds of wildlife and to sleep under starlit African skies.

Duration: 4 days/3 nights
Start/End: Pont Drift Border Post, South Africa
Departures: Departures available throughout the year, enquire with our reservations department.

Day 1: Arrival

Cycle Mashatu staff will be awaiting your arrival at the Pont Drift border or the Limpopo Valley Airfield in Botswana. Change into your cycle gear (facilities available) and then saddle up and ride to your first nights accommodation. Our guides will take care of transporting your luggage.

The destination that day has been your choice but the ride is ours, prepare to be awed by the unknown as we lead through the wilderness to your destination. With 2-3 hours to get there, the journey to the nights rest stop in exciting and unpredictable. You have 2-3 hours to get comfortable with your saddle and the terrain. (Approximately 15 km’s)

Day 2: Simply Luxurious

We wake at dawn to freshly brewed coffee and a light breakfast. Then it’s time to saddle up and discover why Mashatu is called “the land of giants!” The route, distance and pace is designed to suit the skill and competency of the group.  After 4-5 hours of riding, a leisurely lunch will be served in this tranquil setting. Then it’s time for siesta and a game drive through the bushveld will finish off this day and prepare your appetite for a delectable meal. (Approximately 30 km’s)

Day 3: Pure Luxury

Awake at dawn, leave the quiet tranquility of the camp and head out into the majestic beauty of the Mashatu Game Reserve. The route is a mixture of rocky outcrops, sandy river beds and smooth flowing single track which have been carved through centuries of migrating elephants. After approximately 35km’s we will be welcomed with cold refreshments at camp, where you can enjoy freshening up and some down time.
We’ll then have lunch overlooking an active bushveld waterhole and enjoy  an afternoon game drive to a tranquil sundowner setting. (Approximately 30 km’s)
And dinner awaits back at the lodge….

The distance, pace and route is tailored to each group. The aim is to ride 4-5 hours per day, covering 30-40km’s. The pace is generally easy going with regular game sightings, and scenic picnic stops, but be prepared, the riding at Mashatu is deceptively challenging. Rated 2/5.
