Livingstone with the Original Cowboy Bicycle Safari Tours.

Zambia. – One of the best things I did whilst in Livingstone with Greenpop was a +-35km cycle tour around town with The Original Cowboy Bicycle Safari Tours, all under the careful care of our guide Patrick Muyunda.

Starting at 9am the tour took us through the more established suburb of Linda, to Libuyu and Maramba with a visit to a working quarry, that place where the mighty Zambezi River meets the road, the Cowboy pre-school and the Dambwa market.

The tours were started by the late Cliff ‘Cowboy’ Sikatumba who realised that many visitors would like a closer look at Livingstone’s offerings. All proceeds of the bicycle tours go to the Pre-Primary school which is now run by his brother Oliver and is st up to accommodate children between 3 and 9 years.

The tour was incredible in every way. Uninterrupted first hand breathing in of an area filled with history and diversity, people working to improve their lives through action and education. Patrick an excellent guide to it all.

Heart and soul. I highly recommend this to any visitor to the area.
