Klipkoppies border mountain bike trail

This mountain bike trail is the longest currently on offer from Olifants restcamp. It includes a visit to the Mozambique border, only 22km (13.8 miles) from the camp.

You will be taken by game vehicle around 9.8km from the camp in a northern direction on the S44 route, past the Olifants River viewpoint, to the start of the Klipkoppies Mozambique Border Trail.

An early morning cycle ride goes straight into the sunrise, covering 10km of fantastic Kruger scenery. Game encountered is likely to include buffalo, waterbuck, zebra, elephant, kudu and impala.

At a fork in the road, the guides will lead you southeast for 3km to the border between South Africa and Mozambique.

Enjoy your snacks on a hill, overlooking the Olifants River in the distance, with Mozambique to the east. Be daring and put your hand through the fence to touch foreign soil before you take the trail back to the vehicle. Cycle down towards the Letaba River, enjoying the wonderful vista of unspoiled wilderness.

The total trail distance is 24.8km.
