The first day’s ride takes the cyclists across the Zambezi River and into the country of Botswana.

The next week features a string of long, flat cycling days through one of the most impressive wildlife habitats on the planet. Botswana is also home to some 110,000 elephants that roam through the Kalahari and Chobe National Parks so the cyclists should not be surprised if they have to stop on a highway to allow a family of elephants or a solitary male Bull Elephant to cross at a safe distance!

After camping near the Makgadikgadi Pans Game Reserve the riders arrive in the laid-back city of Maun for a rest day. Here they can take a dugout canoe or a small plane ride into the Okavango, the world’s largest inland river delta, to view some of the area’s prolific wildlife. The cycling then continues along the Trans-Kalahari Highway, including "The Longest Day" a challenging 208 km, to the border with Namibia, a country whose stunning arid landscapes are one of the world’s best kept secrets. The section ends in the Namibian capital of Windhoek, a modern, cosmopolitan city where riders can enjoy fabulous beer and some great restaurants.
