Dirt Bike Riding
We have been exploring the area for a number of years on our dirt bikes and have knowledge of the best rides here in the Sodwana bay area. Bring your own dirt bike and join us for off-road riding in Maputaland close to the Mozambique border. This is a unique opportunity to enjoy some of the world’s best scuba diving and to also explore this area on your dirt bike on our guided trips. We cater for the beginner to intermediate rider with different types of terrain. The rides are not too technical and are through veld and plantations on mostly sandy paths and tracks. The rides are tailored to the abilities of the riders and groups & families are welcome.
The trails take riders along Sibaya lakes edge over wide open spaces, through smaller water crossings, up and down grassy hills, through plantations and indigenous vegetation, and sometime in muddy areas on sand roads or narrow bush paths. We visit Lake Sibaya and Samango Junction with the chance to see hippo, zebra and small buck during our rides. We take time to stop and admire the breathtaking views during the rides. Cool of with a swim in the shallow and refreshing water of the lake or a stream.
Bring your own dirt bike and protective gear. We do not rent out bikes or protective gear. Riders should wear at least the basic protective gear for the rides eg. Helmet, goggles, boots etc. Ladies and the younger ones are welcome but must have previous riding experience. We can adjust our trips to be suitable for families.
