Mafunyane MTB Tour Day 2 Map

Guided MTB cycle through Kruger National Park Big-5 area. Day 2 is a relatively flat but often sandy ride where riders wade through the hippo & crocodile-infested Letaba River and passes through elephant-thick Stapelkop Dam and Nyarhi Springs. Riders may also encounter sable antelope, eland, zebras, wildebeest, giraffes and possibly lions. Accompanied by 2 x armed cycle guides and a backup vehicle.



Mostly stable trail tread with some variability, with unavoidable obstacles 8in/20cm tall or less. Other obstacles such as rock gullies and steep sections may exist. Ideal for lower intermediate riders.
