Additional Information

Cycling

    We provide 24-speed Trek® high-quality mountain-bikes, with cycling helmets and water bottles. Most of the route is relatively flat along rural country roads; during the dry season we ride on more off road trail sections. Please bring adequate cycling gear such as padded shorts, t-shirts, cycling shoes or runners, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a pair of cycling gloves. We will send a full packing list to you after tour registration.

Lake kayaking

    The kayaking section is suitable for novices and it is indeed the perfect place to learn paddling strokes. We use sit-on-top “Feelfree® or Ocean-Kayak®”, seating two people per boat. Theses kayaks are safe to use; they are sturdy, stable and unsinkable therefore very simple to handle. Life-jackets (PFD’s) and dry bags are supplied.
