Indian Ocean Trail
Paradise has a name – Mozambique. Postcard-perfect beaches stretch infinitely as the backdrop of our tropical Indian Ocean Trail. Custom fat-bikes give us the edge when moving through soft inland tracks between rural coastal towns. We then move to the beaches at gentle low tide for the journey back. Cycle-tours are slow-going and that culture is embraced even more in Mozambique, allowing for impromptu rest-stops that result in swims in the swells, cracking open an icy local beer or just breathing in the beauty that we get to call our home. The celebration of the good life continues well into the evening while we dine on local cuisine while wiggling our toes in the sand.
INDIAN OCEAN TRAIL TOUR ITINERARY
As the Indian Ocean Trail is a custom private tour, the below itinerary is an indication only. Please contact us with your requirements for us to plan your ideal beach riding experience.
Travel to Kosi Bay Lodge by 3pm for welcoming. We will help you set up your fat bike before running through the briefing for our next few days of riding. Dinner will then be served at Kosi Bay Lodge overlooking the lake and coastal dunes.
For those able to arrive at Kosi Bay Lodge before 1pm, an afternoon ride will be planned around the Lake.
KOSI LODGE TO MOZAMBIQUE
We depart Kosi Bay Lodge for the Mozambique border. We will take any number of routes depending on group size, ability, weather, etc. Once through the border, we travel on the inland sandy tracks to the town of Ponta do Ouro. Here we will stop for a drink on its famous beach before carrying on further north to the quieter stretches of Ponta Malongane. Lunch will be served on our arrival.
We spend the night at the coastal lodge and will head into the small local town for a traditional dinner overlooking Lake Sugi. Think the best Peri-Peri chicken south of Portugal...
THE BEACHES OF MOZAMBIQUE
Today we depart from Ponta Malongane on a figure 8 depending on weather for the remote northern beaches and inland tracks. We will stop along the route to experience more of what Mozambique has to offer before heading back to our lodge for lunch on the beach deck.
The rest of the afternoon is spent exploring the area. Various activities can be booked. We then head out for our last magical Mozambique sunset and festive farewell dinner with our final prize giving.
