Rift Valley Odyssey

The RVO is the only mountain bike race to cross the Great Rift Valley, finishing at Kenya’s iconic safari destination – Maasai Mara.  September is migration season, when approximately 1 million animals migrate between Serengeti and Maasai Mara National Parks.

Cycling on the RVO is like cycling through pages of the National Geographic magazine, each stage crosses incredible landscape that is littered with wildlife; through verdant farmlands, vast indigenous forests, blistering volcanic deserts, arid scrub land, montane forests and rolling savanna. This breathtaking adventure race is 50% single track and 50% jeep track, it provides an intense mountain biking experience across raw Africa.

Our customised post race safari package for 2 nights provides the opportunity to visit Maasai Mara, to witness the annual migration, a spectacular wonder of the natural world. Enjoy a majestic hot air balloon ride, floating overhead this magnificent wildlife spectacle. Our specialist travel advisors will plan all your vacation logistics and needs.
