The Zambezi River snakes its way through 2700 km of mesmerising countryside, passing through seven countries before finally reaching the Indian Ocean. A lifeline to wildlife and humans alike throughout its course, there is also a natural beauty that attracts tourists from all over the world. At the point where the Zambezi River plunges more than 100 meters into the gorge below, forming one of the seven natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls, is what sets the backdrop for the Zambezi Cycle Challenge.

The primary objective of ZCC is to raise funds by hosting a unique mountain bike event that will take the riders through the scenic natural forest areas close to Victoria Falls. All the funds raised will be channelled into conservation areas through reputable organizations that are dedicated in their efforts to conserve wildlife.
