This signature cycling tour only takes place twice a year. It includes the most amazing cycling highlights in Eastern Uganda and leads up to the spectacular Tour of Karamoja. The Tour of Karamoja is Uganda’s ultimate wilderness bike tradition, through the untamed savannah of Northeast Uganda. Expect 7-days of rich cultural encounters, dramatic scenery and Africa’s finest wildlife.


The 10 or 16 days wilderness bicycle tour begins in Kampala and ends in the most Northeastern corner of Uganda: Kidepo Valley National Park. On our way to Karamoja we will pass wonderful natural wonders like the Ssezibwa Falls, Mabira rainforest, the source of the Nile and the wonderful Sipi Falls. Once in Karamoja the tour continues on the lower savannah plains in Pian Upe Wildlife Reserve and takes you over the rolling hills and mountain slopes around around Mount Kadam, Mount Moroto and Mount Morungole into Kidepo Valley National Park. The multiple stages of the Tour of Karamoja will be varied and will challenge your fitness, technical ability and your bike.
