A popular activity from Hondo Hondo is cycling. Come with your own bike, or rent one. We have a selection of mountain bike sizes for all ages and helmets if you like. Unfortunately there are no cycling trails within the National Park itself (and if there were, they’d be a “black run”), but the valley provides plenty of great cycling terrain full of things to see.
You can combine cycling with other activities such as village tour, rubber plantation and canoeing adventures and it is possible to go with one of our guides to explore the local rural villages, and this provides a great opportunity for photography and interaction with rural Tanzanian life.
Intrepid explorers can go even further, anywhere, freestyle (you can’t get lost – we’re at the base of the huge mountains), out onto the Kilombero Floodplains through sugar plantations, local shamba (farms) and open bush land.
The cycling is generally easy, as the valley is mostly very flat. It can however, be quite wet in some areas so be prepared for a muddy adventure!
