Mountain biking in East Africa is a really stunning experience for the fit and adventurous tourist. In Tanzania, mountain biking is mostly done in the northern region, especially around Lake Manyara National Park and Kilimanjaro National Park, while Kenya’s Hell’s Gate National Park is arguably the premier mountain biking destination in all of East Africa.

Hell’s Gate National Park is arguably the best place in East Africa for a bike safari. It’s unique volcanic landscape and the lack of dangerous predators makes it the perfect place to get out and explore without fear.
With both self-guided and guided tour options available, visitors to Hell’s Gate National Park can explore at their leisure, freely mixing in some hiking and rock-climbing with their cycling.
Of course, you’re not limited to only Hell’s Gate National Park. It’s also possible to arrange cycling tours of Lake Naivasha, Nairobi, and the picturesque Kenya Coast.
