The Big Sky Lodges team have teamed up with a crew of expert trail builders to develop a network of trails that allow mountain bikers the rare opportunity to explore the spectacular landscape of the Erongo Mountains at their own pace.
These are some of the most scenic mountain bike trails in Namibia, arguably in the world. To add to this unique offering, they have now added specialized Levo E-Bikes, the best of the best in the world of Mountain E-Bikes, to ensure hours of hassle-free enjoyable riding.
There is a well-trained mountain bike guide on-site if you wish to take the hassle out of navigating the routes on your own, so you can enjoy local expert knowledge, making the most of the trails and the sights and sounds of the surroundings. Should you prefer to explore the trails on your own, there are countless options for hours of mountain biking bliss where you can follow one of the three well-marked and planned routes.
These routes vary in distance and effort level ranging from an easy-going 22km route with around 294m of climbing to a 33km route with 579m of climbing. Also marked out on these routes are several extensions that lead off from this trail, exploring some of the granite outcrops on the property that will appeal to those with a higher level of skill and taste for adventure.
All the mountain bike trails are well-marked and maintained. The imposing red granite landscape of the Erongo mountain range presents the backdrop for an impressive journey through the history and present beauty of the area. Geological major events like the rupture of the Gondwana Continent 130 million years ago, the life of the first people in the region 300 to 500 thousand years ago, the 2000 – 4000-year-old rock paintings of the hunter-gatherers and the fascinating flora and fauna and animals all can be experienced up close and personal on these mountain bike trails.
And for those who are not travelling with your own mountain bike, you are welcome to hire one of their new Levo E-Bikes for the ride of your lifetime. It is something you will never forget.
