Thoroughly enjoyed my mountain biking experience at Mankele. Enjoyed 2 long rides there whilst staying at Sudwala. Maybe a little lonely in hindsight to ride by yourself on a week day afternoon.

Very beautiful place and well maintained, perfect for a day out with family or friends. From far, this was my favourite mountain biking experience. This place offers challenging mountain climbs, lovely bush tunnels, tricky single tracks and an awesome downhill. Recommended for every one
