From the Pyramids of Giza to Table Mountain, explore Africa from top to bottom on TDA's flagship cycling expedition

Our original trans-continental journey and flagship expedition crosses Africa from north to south and covers almost 8700 km in just over 3 months. Riders will depart under the watchful eyes of the immortal Sphinx and cycle along the Nile past ancient temples and through the Sudanese desert to Khartoum perched at the junction of the legendary Blue & White Nile Rivers. After flying to Nairobi, the riders will pedal past legendary Mount Kilimanjaro, to Lake Malawi, Victoria Falls, and along the edges of the magnificent Kalahari and Namib deserts, en route to the finish of this amazing cycling adventure in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa

The trans-African crossing from Cairo to Cape Town has been one of the world’s epic journeys ever since Cecil Rhodes’ 19th century dream of connecting South Africa and Egypt by rail. Since then, the route has become an iconic goal for global adventurers. Over the years individuals have attempted to complete the route using every kind of transport imaginable, with many forced to abandon their quest due to physical challenges and geopolitical complications. The Tour d’Afrique Cycling Expedition is a unique test of mind, body, and bicycle, an incredible physical and mental challenge that will ultimately reward you with an intense feeling of personal accomplishment.
