Overview

Come join us for an active bicycle tour around the Livingstone area, a chance to journey along the picturesque Zambezi river, visit local villages and markets, and interact with locals. We stop along the way to discuss the local cultures and landscapes. These tours directly support a community school school and we finish the tour by visiting this school and meeting some of the children.

Our group of 8 thoroughly enjoyed our cycle tour through the the REAL ZAMBIA. Most importantly we really felt privileged that we were supporting the local school. Take plenty of water and an open mind! Thank you Oliver
