If scenes of Wildebeest migration and big cat kills on the Discovery or National Geographic Channel are your African fantasy, then this is the section of the Tour d'Afrique for you.

Arusha, the starting point for this incredible ride, is East Africa’s safari capital and the gateway to such famous attractions as Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Kilimanjaro. Riders should consider arriving a few days early in order to enjoy the opportunities to experience wild Africa at its most spectacular or to shop in the local stores and markets.

Heading south from Arusha, the red-cloaked Masai tribesmen will be your constant companions as you spin along roads with relatively little traffic, keeping an eye out for zebra and giraffe.

At Babati you trade the tarmac for several challenging days of ascents and descents-the Masai Steppe-mostly on rougher gravel and sandy roads, that can be treacherous in places if the rainy season has arrived. However the friendliness of the villagers, the roadside banana stands, and the sheer beauty of this unique and verdant land ensures that come rain or shine, this stretch will be one of the most memorable on tour. Two of highlights will be cycling past Rungwa Game Reserve and 1300 meters to the the 'World's End' viewpoint before speeding down 800m into the section ending town of Mbeya.
