Calabash Safari Cycle Tours

Looking for a unique way to experience the bush? Calabash Cycling Tours and Safaris is an eco-tourism initiative based in the Dinokeng Game Reserve, a project located 40km north of Tshwane which incorporates many local game farms into one large 125 000 hectare nature reserve. The Dinokeng Game Reserve is home to Big 5 game.

Experience the bushveld like never before as you explore the savannah on a bicycle. Guests are welcome to bring their own bicycle or rent one from host Gregory Gordon. Visitors are able to view animals from the saddle because the animals do not find the bicycles threatening.

Leave the stress and noise of the city behind and immerse yourself in the serenity of the bushveld as a trained and experienced guide takes you on an informative tour of the picturesque game farm.

Additional offerings

Calabash Safari Cycle Tours also hosts shebeen tours where visitors are welcomed to enjoy lunch or a game of pool with the locals.

You also have the option of taking a cruise on the establishment’s barge down the Elands River (food and alcohol can be provided). The barge cruise gives guests the opportunity to view crocodiles, hippos and other game.

Calabash Safari Cycle Tours is able to assist visitors to book accommodation in the surrounding game farms and lodges.

Catering to all ages and fitness levels, Calabash Safari Cycle Tours doesn’t only offer bushveld bike rides, but also offers a whole host of other activities that range from hiking, bird watching and quad biking to elephant rides. Whether you’re a family, group of friends or individual, you couldn’t ask for anything more different and magical.
