    Bike ride to the Materuni Waterfalls
    We had an amazing day together with our guide Roger. We biked to the Materuni Waterfalls. The ride is really beautiful and it felt good to do an active activity. Roger told us many interesting things on the way to the waterfalls. We also enjoyed the coffee tour and the delicious lunch we got. Roger made sure enjoyed the tour. We're happy to have chosen this activity and this agency!

    Cycle to Chemka
    I booked a last minute cycling trip to the Chemka hot springs after my Kilimanjaro trek and team were brilliant. I was picked up on time from my hotel and met my guide George to pick up the bikes. I had a choice of great quality bikes to choose from which were perfect for the job. After setting off George was friendly, chatty and very knowledgeable about the culture of the area, the history and the landscape. The few hours we were cycling to get to the springs passed by in a flash! The springs themselves were charming and I had a great couple of hours relaxing and letting the aches of the mountain slip away! The bbq lunch was a lovely touch afterwards. The terrain on the way out was a little rough so George set us on a smoother route back and again was full of knowledge about the route. I was flagging on the way back so had to stop a couple of times which again George was more than happy to accommodate. Once we’d finished the cycle I was dropped promptly back to my hotel for a much needed rest! Overall it was a fab experience and the team were brilliant - would thoroughly recommend.

    4 day custom trip for one person
    I spent four days with George and Octavian riding from Moshi to West Kili, West Kili to Arusha, Arusha to Makuyuni then from Lake Manyara to Tarangire Park. It was my seventh time to Tanzania, but my first trip with Oclaa. It was definitely one of the best experiences I've had in Africa and I plan to return in 2024 and ride with them in Eastern Tanzania.

    Amazing day in Moshi with bicycle!!
    I with friends we cycle through the sugarcane and rice plantations, the route was really amazing as we passed through the different villages all the way down to the fields. We managed to do 25km both of us as our organizer recommend it by our fitness. Our guide was nice and helpful, he fixed some of bicycle flats within a minute. Highly recommend this company and this tour.

    Moshi Cycle
    We contacted Oclaa Adventures via WhatsApp to rent 4 bikes that same day for an afternoon to cycle around Moshi. Octavius was so accomodating and thought of everything, providing us with bikes, helmets, a repair kit and tyre pump. We were provided with directions for a scenic route through coffee plantations that was easy to follow using an app he recommended. After our cycle he collected the bikes from the place we were staying so we didn't have to go out of our way to return them.

    Mountain biking among the wild animals in Tanzania
    We started our Safari holiday with a 2-day Mountain bike trip in the north of Tanzania. It was a fantastic experience and a nice active start to the holiday. Octavian and his team (cook, attendant and photographer) gave us a great start to our holiday. What could be better than cycling through the Tanzanian landscape on your mountain bike among giraffes, zebras, elephants and gazelles. In the afternoon we were treated to a delicious lunch (lots of local fruit) and in the evening we were served a delicious hot meal prepared by the cook. We slept at night in a tent among the animals. Thank you for taking good care of us! Highly recommended.

    A wunderful day in National Parc Lake Manyara / Tanzania
    A wonderful trip through National Parc Lake Manyara with Octavian. First we only could see different apes, but in the afternoon, we could watch Zebras, Giraffes, Elephants, Buffaloes and many others. And Octavian was a very friendly and competent guide.

    Hotspring Bike Experience
    I went on a bike trip with Oclaa Adventures, after my Kilimanjaro climb. The arrangements were professionally executed. The bike was nice and easy to use. Octavian, the owner made sure every single detail went as we planned. I had George as my guide, he was really experienced, informative, friendly and funny all the time. The lunch at the Hotspring was awesome, for really I had a really great experience overall. Highly recommended!!

    Highly recommended
    It was a pleasure to spend a few days with Octavian. He was the most professional and nicest guy that guided us in Moshi. Octavian under promises and over delivers. He is genuine and trustworthy and, most importantly, a kind person. We especially enjoyed a trip to Materuni, a Chaga village and a beautiful waterfall on the southern slopes of the Kilimanjaro. When I return to Tanzania, Octavian will be the first one I will contact.

    Tanzania Bicycle Safari
    A group of 4 of us recently went on a two day bicycle safari in Western Kilimanjaro ( Enduimet ), and it was a great experience! Our team of Guide, Driver and Cook was knowledgeable and friendly, the vehicle was comfortable, and they accommodated dietary restrictions within our group. Our guide was very attentive to detail, and we were able to ride 180 kilometres in total, we saw a wide variety of animals and birds. We also spent some time on one of the mountain at the border of Tanzania-Kenya for sunset. It was absolutely amazing, many thanks to Octavian and his team for the great organization. Would definitely recommend!

What an experience this has been. Octavian and his team have really treated us with all the good things the Kilimanjaro area has to offer. We (a family with 2 children aged 10 and 11) were picked up right on time, transported to a nice track and then our cycling adventure could start. We had decent bikes (an upgrade will be due over time) and were guided through a magnificent scenery and even saw some real wildlife (zebra, girafe, wildebeest, impala, …) outside the national park. The assistant car followed at a distance (discrete and yet close enough to provide comfort and snacks and drinks when needed). An exquise lunch was prepared at the entrance of a national park and at night, we had a sundowner cycling tour accompanied by a ranger and even saw (< 20m) an elephant! Everything captured life by a superb photagrapher. Camp at night can use an upgrade, but scenery was magnificent and food again excellent. Warm, smart and friendly team, great organisation, perfect English!
