Come cycle the desert! If you've a hankering for adventure, exquisite scenery, eternal skies and if you want to do something good for our planet. This is an extraordinary life changing experience! The exhilaration of overcoming a physical challenge whilst conserving the world's wild places. Do something worthwhile for yourself and for Africa!

7 Days of cycling over rugged rocks, through stunning scenery. Tracking the rare desert rhinos and seeking out desert elephant, giraffe, oryx and springbok. Sleep under the stars (tents with mosquito net ceiling) & enjoy haute Cuisine in the wild. One night in exclusive Doro Nawas Lodge & the final destination at Palmwag Lodge. The cool of the desert winter in May, brilliant blue skies but cool enough for frost at night.

The Aim: Conserve this beautiful Land - Raise sponsorship for Save the Rhino Trust, Namibia. By saving the rhinos, we save every other species and the glorious landscape they inhabit.

The Project: Building a visitor and education centre to provide a future for the tribal communities owning the land where rhinos roam.

Our money will go to Namibia via David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) r

Pedal power through this raw untouched land connects one deeply to the wild and touches the soul in an inexplicable way. Gain an extraordinary peak of fitness and sense of wellbeing: The world is at your feet; You can conquer anything! Many have plucked up the courage to make dramatic life changes and found deeper life satisfaction, following the adventure.

The cycle continues the important work of Mike Hearn, who lived and worked for 12 yrs among the tribal communities of Northern Namibia, conserving a beautiful land and the rare desert adapted Rhino. He combined a mad love of cycling off road, Rhinos & Namibia. A true charismatic and diplomat, he was able to cut through deeply divided opinion and link tribal people, government and conservation into one focused aim for the good.

Our camp support is provided by Wilderness Safaris who donate much of their service in lieu of our fundraising to conserve the landscape they operate in. Our cycle support & cycle hire is provided to very high standard by Cycletec Windhoek.
