Trip Info

If you want to go on the king of all bike tours, this one is for you! Kili Base Cycling Tours combines multiple tours into one epic, eight-day adventure. Highlights of this tour include riding to the gateway of Kilimanjaro, visiting a Maasai village, taking a dip in Lake Chala and capping everything off with a visit to Arusha National Park. We will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner on days 2 – 6.

Day 1:
Your guide, Roy Bantam, will meet you upon your arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport. He will transfer you to your hotel at Tembo Tamu Bed & Breakfast.

Day 2:
Today is the first day of your cycling tour! Today will be an acclimatization day. While we get your legs prepared for the rest of this tour, we will ride around Moshi. Your guide will talk about the history of Moshi. There will also see picturesque sight lines of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Day 3 – 40 kms, 3600 feet
We will bike along uneven paths from Moshi to the Lake Chala campsite. We will ride through farmland, see villages scattered between banana and coffe plantations, and up a long climb to Marangu, a gateway to Kilimanjaro. An 8 mile downhill will take us back into Savannah land, where Lake Chala is situated.

Day 4 – 3300 feet
We will head further north, to Rongai. We will ride close to the Kenyan border, climbing to higher altitude. We will arrive at our cozy chalets in the afternoon. Feel free to go for a walk or climbing!

Day 6 –  1000 feet
We will ride on gravel tracks between Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru. This is a dusty and hilly ride! Look out for elephants, zebras and other wildlife. We will stay at Momella Lodge. After a short rest, we will go on a game drive in Arusha National Park. You will see Giraffes, zebras, elephants and other amazing animals!

    Amazing trip ever
    The best trip we’ve ever done. High-class service with outstanding tour guides. Historical sites, experiences with interesting encounter with Mount Kilimanjaro. Got a glimpse of everyday life by visiting villages. First-class Tents with good food and good service. Relaxing days at Lake challa again before returning home. A thoroughly well-arranged trip. Definitely not the last time we were traveling with Kili Bike Adventures..

    An amazing and unforgetable experience
    We’ve had a special time with Kili Bike Adventures in northern Tanzania (Kili Base cycling tours), into the Kilimanjaro National Park and we could’t be happier with the whole thing! In both occasion the staff was very, very nice, making sure you feel at home..In both lodges we stayed in their beautiful luxury tents and the experience was amazing. Being so close to the mountain Kilimanjaro and at the same time having such incredible service is priceless. The safaris were very interesting as well, we’ve seen a peak and enjoyed great breakfast in the best location of the parks with our guides! What an experience…
