SAFARI SIMBAZ VISITOR EXPERIENCES
The Simbaz have created a model which delivers education to local communities but also generates revenue from courses and cycling holidays marketed to domestic and foreign visitors.
Aimed at members of the public and at persons employed in the cycle trade or who are regularly involved with the mechanical aspects of bicycles in their work.
Cycling with Safari Simbaz in Kenya is an ultimate ride for adventure enthusiasts. It offers a rare opportunity to witness the country's stunning landscapes and incredible wildlife up close.
