ABOUT DESERT KNIGHTS

The /Ai/Ais-Richtersveld Transfrontier Park is a unique environment for adventure sports activities, having beautiful mountainous scenery, a remote wilderness character and the presence of a major river within a desert environment. The perfect home for the Desert Knights MTB Tour – which combines 5 days of cycling, some of it at night under the full moon, and 1 day of kayaking on the Orange River.

Deserts are spectacular during the day, yet under the light of a full moon this becomes an unforgettable experience. By cycling during the evening and at night, the challenge of cycling in the heat of the desert is substantially reduced.

The aim of the tour is to contribute towards unlocking the tourism potential of the /Ai/Ais-Richtersveld Transfrontier Park through staging of a world class annual multi-stage MTB event. Proceeds of the tour will support joint conservation activities of this unique Transfrontier Park.

The cost is R/N$17,500 per person all inclusive of tented camp, meals, drinks, activities and shuttles as outlined in programme overview. Non-cyclist participants are welcome, and will be accommodated at the same tour fee. Participants are to bring their own cycling equipment.
