Please Note

For experienced MTB riders only.

The Route

Extreme. And Wild.
  • The QZ ops team has returned from Zimbabwe after having secured the overnight camping areas and ride routes for Quest Zimbabwe 2019.
  • There are some remote tracks that have never been visited by the wheels of a bicycle.
  • The route will comprise common and restricted gravel roads, jeep tracks and game paths (regular paths that wild animals use to move through the bush).
  • Subscribe to the blog and newsletter to have exclusive access to the route’s details.

Rough & Wild

Limitations & Considerations
  • This is a specialised mountain bike expedition into remote African bush.
  • No vegetarian or vegan meal options will be available due to logistical and supply chain limitations.
  • Rangers and support staff will remain vigilant during the nights to safeguard against risky wild animal encounters.
  • The wild camping nights reduce the luxury of ablutions. Eco-friendly solutions will be provided when standard western toilets are not available.
  • Professional emergency personnel will travel daily with the convoy of teams for rapid response.
  • Riders will be chaperoned by Professional Wildlife Rangers throughout the Quest.
