If you want to experience awe, Lesotho is the place to discover a wild and magical world. You may feel as if you are taking the first steps, or cycle tracks rather, into an undiscovered land – a land with no fences and boundless possibilities, a land without limitations, there for you to push your limits.

Our events and tours will take you deep into the heart of the Mountain Kingdom. Allow us to surprise you and exceed your expectations of comfort and hospitality.
If you love mountains, cycling, adventure and experiencing one of Southern Africa’s best riding destinations, then Lesotho is tailor made for you! The sheer remoteness and great sense of exploration you get from being in Lesotho make our events and tours truly unique.
