Desert Sands

7 Days Advanced - Challenging 670 KmAVG 111 Km

Due to unrest in Ethiopia, the 2017 Tour d’Afrique will avoid Ethiopia and instead travel through Uganda and Rwanda. The new route is described below. It is our intention that the 2018 edition will return to cycling through Ethiopia.

Heading south from Khartoum, the tour passes through the Gezira region – the “bread basket” of Sudan. After the town of Sennar, the terrain becomes more difficult and you will be riding on rough “off-roads” through traditional and remote villages. As the tour approaches Ethiopia border region the countryside gradually transforms from the Arabic Muslim world of northern Africa to the more tribal and traditional nature of the Horn of Africa.

From the border we return by bus to Khartoum and make our way to Nairobi for the start of the Jewel of Africa section.
