After many hours on his bike through the less visited areas of Arusha and Mount Kilimanjaro, the Dutch mountainbiker Harrie came up with the idea to organize mountainbike / gravelbike tours in the country he lost his heart. With his wife and her Tanzanian family, he founded Tour de Kilimanjaro in 2019.
By organising the various mountainbike / gravelbike tours in one of the most beautiful countries of Africa, the family wants to show you wonderful wildlife (think of enormous amounts of zebra’s, giraffes, elephants, wildebeests, impala’s, gazelles and many birds), the diversity of nature around Arusha / Mount Kilimanjaro, and would like you to experience local life.
The purpose of the family is to facilitate adventurous and amazing mountainbike / gravelbike tours, to provide an income for family members and use the surplus income to support family members for (further) education.
At this moment the family offers the Kilimanjaro Classic and two day tours, however more day tours and multiple day tours are about to come! All tours start from their homebase in Arusha, Themi View.
The Kilimanjaro Classic is a six to eight day mountainbike / gravelbike tour around Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain (altitude of 5895 meter) of Africa. This tour includes a bikesafari, which starts from Kibo’s Eco Place. A magnificent and quiet place in the middle of nowhere (only Masaai boma’s at 500 meter) with a tree plantation and nursery.
Guests of Tour de Kilimanjaro and Themi View are offered the possibility to compensate for their CO2 exhaust of the flight to Tanzania / Africa through a contribution to the tree planting / reforestation efforts.
