Established in 2004, Escape Cycle Tours specializes in adventure cycling tours throughout the most scenic parts of Southern Africa, incorporating both road and mountain bike.

The vision and passion of Chris Murray and Liz Szabo combined their individual strengths, skills and interests to create some of the most exciting cycle safari experiences in Africa. Escape Cycle Tours guides are registered National Tourist Guides to ensure tours can be carried out throughout Southern Africa, and all carry Level 1 First Aid certifications.

“Our bike tours are amazing dream vacations for the adventurous. In our opinion, there is nothing better than the feeling of exploring nature while being self-propelled on two wheels.” Escape Cycle Tours provide fully supported cycle tours with backup vehicles, specialised bike trailers, bike technicians and all the added extras that make your cycle safari an unforgettable experience.
