We had a great tour through the vic falls area with Bike and Saddle guide Farai. First to the big tree, a huge Baobab of over 1000 years. After riding through the park in the area, and visiting the bridge, Farai took us to his own town. There he learned us how it all works. We had a great time,... More

I first heard about this company from the New York Times article. Since the company was mentioned in the Times I figured that this was a tour worth signing up for on our trip to Africa. However, I was wrong. We were told to meet out guide, Victor, in the lobby of the Victoria Falls Hotel. After waiting for 30... More

Hi Arnie - we clearly dropped the ball on this one. Please accept our apologies and a full refund. It's not often that this happens - but I guess we can learn from our mistakes and will do better. Sincerely, Ben Smith - Owner More

We were really looking forward to doing the Bike & Saddle tour of Victoria Falls after having done their tour of Soweto in Johannesburg. We scheduled a tour to start from the Victoria Falls hotel at 3:30 PM. Shortly thereafter our guide arrived on his bike, but no bikes arrived for us to ride. The guide left to find out... More

Dear MNMauiGirl - I'm first of all very sorry to hear about this experience. Can you provide a bit more detail through whom you've booked this tour - as we have no record of you booking this tour with Bike & Saddle. All bookings and reservations should go through Bike and Saddle direct. There is one other operator, Vic Falls... More

This is a review of the bike tour of Vic Falls Adventure lodge. Took the tour after a longer overland tour to be able to "move" after having been on the truck for quite a while. Started off good to the township and a local market. Nice snacks at the river but the guide left me totally alone with the... More

Great tour in Victoria Falls. Scenery was great as were the guides (Harry and Ryan). The tour will allow you to see the Townsips around Vic Falls, the transquil riverside of the Zambezi as well as wild life (elephants, hippos, etc.) You will need ot be in decent shape to do the biking but it is mostly quite easy. The... More

First thing you must know is that Bike and Saddle is not who actually gives you the tour. They farm it out to Adventure Zone Vic Falls if I'm not mistaken. We had a disappointing experience the day of the bike tour. When I presented my complaints to Gustav at Bike and Saddle, he was the epitome of professionalism. He... More

The bike tour of Victoria Falls was a great way to get beyond the touristy focus of the town and to see parts of the town that are not the focus of any other activity. Harry was a great guide. He provided context and helped to find some elephants. Overall, a lovely afternoon.

I and a friend of mine undertook the Bike and Saddle Day tours recently while we were at the Victoria Falls. We cycled through various locations which was totally a different and enjoyable experience. Before starting the guides did a good job helping us know how to handle the equipment in a safe way. We went around the town, the... More

I had a wonderful time with Bike & Saddle at Vic Falls. The guides were experienced and spend time explaining the equipment and safety rules to us. We did a cycle through the town and spend a bit of time at the local market where I bought tasty honey. Then we made our way through the national park where suddenly... More
