DAILY ROUTINE

The Tour d'Afrique is designed as the ultimate challenge, both physically and mentally. However anyone who is adventurous and are in excellent physical condition may participate. The tour includes 20 days of rest -- or two days of rest for every 10 days of riding.

 

A typical riding day will begin at 7:30 AM. By then, you will have packed your tent and gear, loaded your water bottles ready for the start signal. You can store any gear you do not need during the day on one of the support trucks.

 

At each day's end, the trucks will be at the campsite with your equipment. You will then need to set up your tent and we will prepare your meal
