Bicycle tourism rises in Tanzania

Tanzania National Parks’ (TANAPA) recently introduced bicycle tourism saw 27 cyclists reach the top of the 4 566m-high Mount Meru in the north of the country.

The cyclists, including both tour operators and tourists, completed their attempt to conquer Africa's fifth highest mountain in three days.
