South Africa

The African Dream

 

From open roads in the semi-arid desert, to twisty roads along the fertile coast, you experience it all.  Magnificent views, unforgettable African experiences and interesting, diverse roads, combined with motorcycling.. this is our most popular adventure motorcycle route in South Africa, and perfect for couples and less extreme riders.

Starting in Cape Town, we wind our way through breathtaking, world famous coastal routes, and work our way inland.
Crossing spectacular mountain ranges, you explore the true beauty of the Cape from all angles.

After a day’s riding, sit back and relax in the luxury, while you watch the African sunset.  Relive the day with your fellow riders, as you sit around a traditional South African fire, under the stars.  No visit is complete without a game drive (safari) or two, getting close to South Africa’s wildlife.

Day 4: Montagu – Seweweekspoort
Route 62 awaits, but we follow this world famous scenic route, we explore a bit of the Breede River Wine Valley.  We join the R62 after riding the exhilarating Tradouw Pass, as we make our way to the jaw-dropping gorge of Seweweekspoort.

Day 5: Seweweekspoort – Oudtshoorn

We make our way towards the ostrich capital of South Africa.  Most of our day we spend in and around the sandstone formations of the Swartberg mountain range.  First we ride south, through the gorge of Seweweekspoort again, then north over Swartberg pass, then finally south again via the Meiringspoort.

Day 6: Oudtshoorn – Tsitsikamma
From the semi-arid to the lush green, we trade the Little Karoo for the Garden Route as we travel down towards the coast via Robinson’s Pass.    For the remainder of the day we follow the coastline of the Indian Ocean, to a hidden jewel of the Tsitsikamma.
We also get to visit an ostrich farm in the morning.
