RIDE A REAL MOUNTAIN

Afriski has hosted major international MTB events, so you can expect some scintillating single-track sections to test your mountain biking skills. There are easier trails too, but whichever way you ride, you’ll get to put your bike through its paces and enjoy breath-taking scenery. Speaking of taking breaths, you might find that’s something you need to do more often when you ride at 3 222m.
