    Can you always guarantee a bike available to hire locally?

    ‘In-country’ bike hire should be arranged at the time of booking, and the cost will be added to your invoice. Please note that there are a limited number of bikes available locally. We always have to match a person's height to the bike frame size and, as there are a limited amount of each size, we cannot always guarantee availability of the correct frame. Therefore it is recommended you add the local bike hire as early as possible.

    What are the highlights of cycling in the Drakensberg?

    Flying into and out Jo’burg we first head towards the Golden Gate National Park (no spectacular bridges here, just sandstone cliff faces taking on a golden hue from the sun), continuing towards the Northern Drakensberg mountains, onto agricultural lands, battlefields and old gold-mining towns, through the Kruger NP (though not on your bikes) and finally along the Panorama Route to God’s Window, Bourke Luck’s Potholes and Blyde River Canyon.

    The trip takes in diverse landscape, some challenging climbs (though support vehicle is there 100% of the time), historical visits, natural springs, wildlife and who needs energy bars when you can get biltong?!

    What cycling gear do I need?

    Synthetic, cotton or merino wool tops will be perfect for cycling , especially when it's hot . Shorts (could be padded) will also be great as it will almost certainly be too hot for cycling in trousers. Stiff sole shoes are in general better for cycling but you could also go for sandals. A lightweight windbreaker (or water-resistant/proof top) may come handy in the unlikely event of a spell of bad weather ; however, in case of rain you may well go for being wet because of the rain rather than because of your own sweat under a jacket.

    How do I compare trips for my next adventure?

    To compare trips for consideration, you can add them to your 'Shortlist'.

    During your search for your next adventure you can save 'holidays' to your Shortlist and compare trips. For this to work correctly, you must be signed in during your 'user session'; i.e. during your time on the Exodus website. These will then be saved in your account (don't have an Exodus website account?  Sign up now!).

    The Shortlist menu item (top of every page) only appears when holidays are added. Adding holidays can be done by clicking on the 'Add to shortlist' with the 'Heart' symbol on any 'Holiday' page above the 'At a Glance' section, or in the 'holiday' panels within Search Results pages, or in the 'You might also like...' section at the foot of the trip page viewed. The selected holidays will be saved into your account for consideration and can be removed there, as well as from the 'compare trips' page from the menu link located at the top of every page.
