Join us for an exclusive Mountain Bike adventure through the Namibian desert.

Mountain biking through the dramatically spectacular Namibian desert is an opportunity very few people will ever be offered to experience. Now, for the first time, Challenge4ACause is inviting members of the mountain bike community to take up the Challenge, help support endangered species conservation and cycle through some of the most isolated yet majestic landscapes in Africa from 25 July to 01 August 2015.


The 6-day cycling journey sees these lucky few negotiate 336 kilometres of the Damaraland desert – a region in Namibia renowned for its unforgiving terrain, low human population and the largest free-ranging desert-adapted black rhino population in Africa.

Challenge4ACause, which is an initiative brought to life by Rhino Africa Safaris, is more than a unique mountain biking event; the driving force behind the initiative is a fierce loyalty to the cause. We also rely heavily on our philanthropic partners to help bolster the donations to a significant figure.

Riders will explore the rugged desert landscape for the benefit of two active foundations which protect endangered species, including the endangered black rhino, and uplift rural communities through digital learning.

The participation fee of R50 000 (less than $5000) per rider includes return airfares from Johannesburg or Cape Town to Windhoek, Namibia, plus all transfers, accommodation, meals and refreshments. Be a trailblazer-adventurer-come-cyclist-come-philanthropist to ride the Challenge.

After a 4 to 6 hour day in the desert, return to camp and refresh under a hot shower before relaxing around a convivial campfire. The spectacular African night sky is unforgettable and the chance of spotting the elusive Desert Rhino in their own terrain makes this ride unique.
