ITINERARY

DAY 1

Cape Town
No riding.
Accommodation near Cape Town’s Waterfront.

Welcome to Africa! By mid-day we will have collected all of the riders and do a quick afternoon of paperwork and tips on riding while in Africa. Consider coming over a day or two early to explore this beautiful city. Our first group dinner will be in the vibrant Cape Town V&A Waterfront.

DAY 2

Stellenbosch, Cape Town
154km
Accommodation near Stellenbosch

What a start! After picking up the bikes, we are off immediately to one of the top 10 ocean roads in the world – Chapmans Peak.

We continue through the Cape Point Nature Reserve quiet roads and panoramas of green fields, rocky cliffs, and the legendary Cape of Good Hope. This outcropping of south-west Africa has made sailors nervous for 500 years (and remains the mythical home of the damned Flying Dutchman), but from our land-side approach, we can admire the Cape without discomfort, staring out from the beach to the south where 4,000 kilometres of Atlantic Ocean separate us from Antarctica.

We spent tonight in South Africa’s second oldest city—Stellenbosch, famous also for its university and wineries.

DAY 3

Arniston
364km
Accommodation near Arniston

Not far from the most southernly spot on the African continent we find our rest for the night in the charming beach-side Arniston Hotel.

Beside the hotel are the nationally landmarked Fisherman’s cottages with their whitewashed walls and thatched roofs set off against a turquoise sea and colourful fishing boats, a magnet for photographers and artists from around the world, spurred on no doubt by the proclaiming of Arniston as one of the World’s Ten Best Hideaways by Time Magazine (May 1996).

DAY 4

Oudtshoorn
345km
Accommodation near Oudtshoorn

Our destination is Oudtshoorn, the ostrich capital of the world. Route 62 is a well known part of the Garden Route and we will hit the best parts of it today – this is a day filled with beautiful mountain passes.

There is also a chance for some extra riding in the late afternoon after we check into the hotel for those who are keen to see one of South Africa’s most famous gravel road passes.

DAY 5

Jeffreys Bay
347km
Accommodation near Jeffreys Bay

Back down a few big sweeping passes to get to the coast and along a few secret roads until we get to Jefferys Bay.

For those interested, we can stop at the worlds tallest bridge bungee jump (216m, 700′) if you care to give it a go!

We will get to our beach side hotel in time for those who want to hit the surf. “J-Bay” is home to arguably the world’s best right-hand pointbreak and a stop on the Billabong Pro Surfing Tour.

DAY 6

Valley of Desolation, Karoo
318km
Accommodation near Graaff Reinet

An early stop at a Cheetah sanctuary helps to break up this day, and gets us away from the coast and into the Great Karoo, a semi-desert region stretching over several South African provinces.

Our hotel for this night was built in the 1800’s but before we get there, we will visit the geological phenomenon known as the Valley of Desolation – a sheer cliff face, a South African national monument

DAY 7

Karoo
436km
Accommodation near Barkley Pass

We continue to enjoy the solitude offered by the Karoo’s vast plains. Make sure at some point that you stop and take a picture of a typical Karoo ‘windpomp’ (windmill). Not only is this perhaps the most iconic feature of this harsh landscape, but it also provides the lifeblood to human and animal alike in this semi-desert.

Towards the end of the day we will start to leave the plains behind as we find ourselves getting closer to the southern Drakensberg, an area characterized by mountains, sandstone cliffs, green valleys, crystal-clear streams and crisp, clean air.

DAY 8

Eastern Cape, Sani Pass
540km
Accommodation near Sani Pass

Our longest day of riding awaits! We track back down the pass and then descend the escarpment, riding through sleepy Transkei villages. You will experience the Xhosa way of daily life in this remote part of the Eastern Cape province, and then ascend the escarpment again via the Langeni pass, rewarding us with magnificent vistas from the top.

The next 400km or so will offer some of the most enjoyable pavement riding of this tour, as we meander through the foothills of the southern Drakensberg, before we arrive at our guest farm below the famous Sani Pass, our home for the next two nights.

DAY 9

Rest Day
No Riding
Accommodation near Sani Pass

Today is your first optional riding day. Included with the tour is a 4×4 ride up the world famous Sani Pass, leaving behind South Africa and crossing up into the country of Lesotho. Sani Pass has been described as “one of the most dangerous mountain passes in the world” and is considered “the mother of all South African mountain passes”. Statistically and in every sense, it out distances, out climbs, and out performs all its competitors to have become the most iconic gravel pass in SA.

We will enjoy lunch in Africa’s highest pub at the top of Sani Pass, at an altitude of almost 10,000ft. If we are lucky, the weather will present us with scenes that will remain with you forever, gazing from the top of the Drakensberg back into South Africa, overlooking the Kwa-Zulu Natal scenery below with views to the Indian Ocean on a clear day. Guaranteed one of the highlights of your visit in Africa! For the technically proficient the option is available to rent a dirt bike for a thrilling and technical ride up the pass.

After lunch we will descend back into South Africa for a leisurely afternoon catching up on some rest or just hanging around the pool, before we enjoy another homestyle cooked South African meal at our guest farm.

DAY 10

iSimangaliso Wetland Park
495km
Accommodation in St Lucia

We will need to depart early today, as another big day awaits. Our first stop will be at the Mandela capture site outside of Howick, where we will reflect on this sad event in South Africa’s history, now an interesting monument dedicated to the icon that was Nelson Mandela.

On a personal level this will also tick the boxes of visiting both the sites where Mandela was captured by the Apartheid regime in 1962 and then released nearly 28 years later at the Victor Verster Prison in 1990.

From the capture site we will head north through rolling sugar cane fields towards our lodge in St Lucia, situated in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. This is a huge protected area along the KwaZulu-Natal coast, with the vast Lake St. Lucia being home to large numbers of hippos, crocodiles, pelicans and flamingos.

We will enjoy a sundowner while cruising the lake in search of the aforementioned. If we are lucky we could also spot elephants, giraffes and leopards that inhabit the lake’s western shores. Dinner will be a late affair tonight after our cruise.

DAY 11

Ponda Malongane
234km
Accommodation on beach in Mozambique

We continue our northernly journey, finding our way through the KwaZulu-Natal villages towards the border with Mozambique. We will have lunch at the border post between South Africa and Mozambique, where we will also leave the bikes behind for the next two nights.

Once we have cleared immigration, we will transfer by 4×4 to our ocean side lodge, on the beach behind the dunes in the tiny village of Ponta Malongane. Ponta Malongane is only reachable by 4×4 and is one of the most popular scuba diving spots in Southern Africa, if not in Africa.

Given its history of Portuguese colonial occupation, Mozambique is famous for its peri-peri prawns and chicken – on the menu tonight for those who like things a little spicy!

DAY 12

Relax
Rest Day. No Riding
Accommodation on beach in Mozambique

Today’s riding will be of the wave kind – for those that are up for it, we recommend doing an optional ocean safari. This entails an early morning departure in search of dolphins. Chances are about 90% that we will find these clever fish, who loves to frolic around the boat. If we do find the dolphins, then we will join then for a swim!

Also as part of the ocean safari we will stop on a shallow reef for snorkeling, as your visit to Ponta Malongane MUST include a view of the sights below the waterline on this magnificent reef. The rest of the day can be spent relaxing and tanning on the beach, loafing around at our camp’s swimming pool or spend shopping to buy some souvenirs for the less fortunate that had to stay behind at home.

Dinner tonight will be either peri-peri prawns or chicken, depending on what you had last night.

DAY 13

Swaziland
348km
Accommodation in Swaziland

While not a long day distance wise, expect some delays as we have to cross out of Mozambique into South Africa, and then again into Swaziland. Country number four today – Swaziland, or if you prefer the new name – Eswatini – is a small landlocked country entirely within the borders of South Africa, and is the worlds last true monarchy. Sugar cane cultivation made the Big Bend region famous in Swaziland, and we will stop for lunch in this area, before negotiating the crazy traffic in Manzini, Swaziland’s biggest city.

We overnight in a beehive village in the Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, one of Swaziland’s three national parks. Beware of the antelope and warthog roaming free through the camp – while they seem tame, they remain wild animals!

DAY 14

Hazyview
457km
Accommodation in Hazyview

We leave the idyllic Mlilwane behind and bid Swaziland farewell and after crossing back into South Africa, make yourself ready for some very enjoyable riding.

We find our way to the famous Long Tom Pass, perhaps one of the most famous passes in South Africa for riders. It is about 25km long and has an altitude variance of more than 670 vertical meters through a complex network of curves as it ascends up the Drakensberg escarpment between Sabie in the east and Lydenburg in the west. It is prone to heavy mist and can be dangerous in low visibility conditions.

After ascending the Long Tom Pass, we descend down the escarpment again via Robbers Pass, another exiting pass in excess of 20km long with 68 curves, into the famous village of Pilgrim’s Rest, and then onwards to Hazyview, where we will stay for the next two nights.

After arrival we will enjoy a well-deserved gin and tonic on the hotel veranda, overlooking the Mpumalanga bush and discussing the day’s riding. Dinner will be served by the Lodge, from its impressive menu of local dishes.

DAY 15

Panorama Route
346km
Accommodation near Hazyview

Today’s riding will eventually loop us back to our hotel of last night, after experiencing one of South Africa’s most scenic rides, the Panorama Route.

The road will lead us among the north-eastern section of the great escarpment of the Drakensberg, where the plateau comes to an abrupt and dramatic halt, falling steeply away into the Lowveld below, accompanied by incredible views out over the grasslands of Africa. We will not have enough time to visit all the highlights on this route, so an early departure is advisable.

We will backtrack our previous day’s route to ride Robbers Pass in an ascending direction, and will then head towards the Abel Erasmus Pass with its 62 bends (of which 12 exceeds 90 degrees) and altitude variance of 730 metres. This pass will be run down and then back up, from where we will stop at the Blyde River Lookout with its amazing vistas over the famous ‘Three Rondavels’. The famous Lowveld View is just south of the Blyde River Lookout and offers a view out over the canyon from a height of 1 219 metres above sea level of the Blyde River cutting its way through the valleys below and the Blydepoort Dam in the distance.

Next stop is the Bourke’s Luck Potholes where we will have lunch. After lunch we will head to God’s Window, the Pinnacle Rock and, time permitting, a selection of graceful waterfalls – the Sabie Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Mac Mac Falls awaits, before we ascend yet again down the escarpment via Kowyns Pass towards our hotel. What a day!

DAY 16

Kruger National Park
120km
Accommodation near Kruger National Park

Today is our shortest day on the bike in terms of distance, as we aim to maximize our time in the Kruger Park, where we will be spending the next two nights. Despite the short distance, we have another early departure, to be in time of our 10am tour at the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Center, where we will experience an educational tour of the great work that this organization is doing.

Here you will also encounter the extremely rare King Cheetah of which there are less than 60 animals on the planet. After our visit to the HESC, we have a short 40km ride to the west entrance of our private bush camp for the next two nights.

DAY 17

Safari Day, Kruger National Park
No Riding

Today will be spend in the magnificent Kruger National Park and will consist of several game drives as well as a guided bush walk, which will focus on the smaller animals and plants in this world heritage site. There will be opportunities to just relax along the pool or on the lodge’s deck overlooking the bush

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans

DAY 18

Botswana
399km
Accommodation near Botswana Border

After yet another early morning game drive, we unfortunately have to leave the Kruger Park area behind, and find our way north east towards Botswana. While today is mostly considered a ‘transit’ day, we still get to ride the spectacular Magoebaskloof Pass, before we traverse the typical South African bush veld for the remainder of the day.

We overnight in a quaint lodge just before the South Africa / Botswana border. Dinner is guaranteed to be another wonderful experience featuring local ‘produce’.

DAY 19

Nata, Botswana
454km
Accommodation near Nata

An early border crossing brings us into Botswana, country number five and it’s friendly and laid back Tswana people. Botswana is considered one of the most politically stable countries in Africa, and is very sparsely populated, making for a unique visiting experience.

Today’s riding will take us through the southern tip of the Tuli Block, an area rich in wildlife, so do not be surprised to encounter a great variety of wild animals along the route. From the Tuli area we will travel towards Francistown, and then passing the Makgadigadi Pans to the east before we reach our overnight lodge near Nata.

DAY 20

Chobe River, Kasane
303km
Accommodation in Kasane

Northward on our last riding day through one of the main farming areas of Botswana (there is typically plenty of game on these roads so our low mileage for the day will be appreciated). We are adjacent to the Chobe Park here, which boasts the highest concentration of elephants in the world. We check into our hotel in Kasane, Botswana and check the motorcycles back in.

In the early afternoon to prepare for another animal highlight of the trip; a sunset scenic river cruise on the Chobe River. Elephants coming to drink at the rivers edge, as well as giraffes, waterbuck, kudu, gazelles, baboons, zebras, Cape buffalo, crocs, hippos, they’re all here.

DAY 21

Victoria Falls
No Riding. 100km van transport to Victoria Falls
Accommodation in Victoria Falls

With the bikes parked in Botswana, we will take our chase vehicle into Zimbabwe, our sixth country on this tour. We will arrive into the town of Victoria Falls in late morning, and get straight into a guided tour of the falls – one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Check into the five star Victoria Falls hotel begins at 2pm, and you are welcome to join us for high tea from 3-5:30pm, or wander the market in town, a 5 minute walk away.

DAY 22

Victoria Falls
No Riding.
Rest Day in Victoria Falls

The day is yours to explore the town of Victoria Falls, or to spend some hours with some of the many activities that are on offer in town: walking with lion cubs, elephant rides, helicopter rides over the Falls, zip-line or bungee jumping, and even white water rafting. Although these sound “touristy,” these get wonderful reviews from previous riders. Spending time wandering through the many hallways of our iconic hotel, or sitting by the pool are also recommended!

DAY 23

Kasane
No riding
Accommodation near Kasane

We return to Kasane for another special day of riding. Our hotel is next to a highway that runs through a National Park, and we will use this chance to ride out and back on a cool, late afternoon run to experience a setting sun and whatever animals we can see from the bike. We don’t normally ride after 4pm, but this is a special trip. If you would rather sit by the pool – that’s ok too!

Caution: Elephants! Road sign standing beside road Namibia Africa.

DAY 24

Nata, Botswana
303km
Accommodation near Nata

We will check out of our hotel by 10am, and take our vehicle back into Botswana where the bikes are parked. A quick lunch and we are off, heading southward, destined ultimately for Cape Town. We are backtracking on this day, but our hotel is different, giving yet another angle into the culture of Botswana.

DAY 25

Okavango Delta
302km
Accommodation in tented camp in the Okavango Delta

We arrive at Maun by late morning. Maun is the gateway town for the Okavango Delta and has developed quickly in the last few years. The Okavango Delta is the world’s largest inland delta and spreads over 15,000 square kilometers. The Delta is the result of the Okavango River having no natural outlet, so it leaves its waters in the desert, creating a massive wetland wilderness. The only real way to appreciate the immensity of the delta is to see it from above. We drop the bikes in town and hurry to the airport where a private chartered airplane takes us on on a scenic flight over the Delta, before landing us at a private airfield where our bush crew will meet us. We spend the the first of two nights in this bush camp. Your bedroom is a canvas tent, with stretcher beds topped with mattresses, duvets, and pillows. This camp site is properly ‘in the bush’. There are no buildings or civilization visible. There is a crew to do your cooking and cleaning up. The cooks will create all of the meals over an open fire, leaving you to enjoy the sounds of the bush. It is common to hear lions, hippos, and hyenas through the night.

DAY 26

Maun
No Riding
Accommodation in Maun

Another early start and our last morning of game viewing. After lunch we have a bumpy three hour drive back to Maun where the lodge and a hot shower awaits!

DAY 27

Ghanzi
285km
Accommodation near Ghanzi

We have a lazy start to this day as we head west on the Trans Kalahari Highway. Traffic is light and we often encounter running ostriches, warthogs, to entertain us as we travel through the largest continuous stretch of sand in the world. Our town tonight is a small but busy regional place, with the main industry being cattle farming. We will arrive in time to spend time walking through the shops and taking a peak into the everyday world of the folk who live here

DAY 28

Namibia
229km
Accommodation near Namibian Border

Short day in distance today, but we are finishing our time in Botswana and will cross into Namibia for the first time. The border formality is straight forward for the guests, and the paperwork and entry documents will be done by our staff. Best case will be an hour for the crossing, but if the power is out, or there is an usually busy crossing, we may need many hours to compete the entry. With luck we will arrive at our lodge in the early afternoon and go for a walk with the local San people, who can show us a small bit of their amazing knowledge of the bush, including edible and medicinal plants.

DAY 29

Windhoek
298km
Accommodation in Windhoek

We start our straight line run to Windhoek, the capitol city of Namibia. We are still in cattle country, and will will pass large cattle farming operations along the way today. Namibia’s population is only about 2.5 million, which leaves a lots of space for us to explore! We will be in Windhoek for two nights.

DAY 30

Windhoek
Option day. No Riding.
Accommodation in Windhoek

We take this day to work on bikes, and to resupply before we head into the desert. You can take the day to explore Windhoek, shop, or relax. Windhoek will be the last place to stock up on prescription meds or ‘modern’ items like faster SD cards, etc and even here, your options will be limited.

DAY 31

Solitaire to Sasreim
95km
Accommodation near Sesreim

Our appreciation of Namibia’s excellent gravel roads will start today. We exit the city and after a short spell on the highway, we say goodbye blacktop and hello dust. The famous apple strudel in the tiny town of Solitaire is on the menu for today. This is one of our longer days of gravel and we will arrive in late afternoon, just in time to experience the sun set against the mountains and sand dunes of the Namib desert, arguably the oldest in the world, and a World Heritage Site.

DAY 32

Dune Tour, Sossusvlei
No Riding
Accommodation near Sesreim

An early start has us to the sand dunes at sunrise. The dunes in the Namib Desert can rise 1,300’, and are among the highest in the world. We have a personalized tour of Sossusvlei and a walking tour of Dead Vlei, a surreal valley holding 900-year old standing tree skeletons, burned black from the sun and anchored lifeless in a valley that is too dry for them to decompose. The movie The Cell had several scenes shot here, allowing nature to deliver scenes of haunting solitude and isolation that not even Hollywood could dream up. We’re back to the lodge by early afternoon and get a well-deserved afternoon off to relax by the pool, read, or rest. If you’re still eager to get out, walking trails bring you into the small mountains nearby where you can enjoy the intimate sounds of the Namib’s bird and insect life that is normally blocked out by your motorcycle helmet. As the sun begins its fall onto the dunes to the east, the fire is stoked to provide another meal for us.

DAY 33

Aus
5km paved / 270km gravel
Accommodation near Aus

Only 5 kms of paved road today! From morning to night we are on natural surfaced (gravel) roads. Part of the reason they do not tar these roads is because of low traffic volumes. It is not unusual to have hours pass by with no other vehicles on the roads. The group can stretch out and on this day more than most we get that wonderful feeling of riding somewhere very foreign yet welcoming.

DAY 34

Namib Desert


Optional 250km paved
Accommodation near Aus

Across the Namib desert we ride, keeping our eyes open for one of the last herds of feral horses left in the world. We arrive at the coastal town of Luderitz for a tour of Kolmanskop, a diamond mining town abandoned lock, stock, and barrel when bigger diamonds were found further south. The sand dunes are slowly reclaiming the town, but there is still a fascinating story that comes with the old buildings. This is a guided tour. After lunch we return to Aus for our second night. This is an optional (but recommended!) day. It can be extremely windy at the coast, so we have cancelled this days ride before, cross your fingers for calm winds!

DAY 35

Fish River Canyon
167km paved / 141km gravel
Accommodation in Fish River Canyon

Flora lovers will be fascinated with Namibia’s national tree, the kokerboom, which is actually a large flowering aloe, and exemplifies the beauty that can arise in such an arid place. We have a relaxed pace today as we continue to get used to watching for game while riding on both gravel and tarmac roads. Before we check into the lodge, we take a relaxed visit to the second largest canyon in the world, the Fish River Canyon.

DAY 36

Springbok, Northern Cape
168km paved / 127km gravel
Accommodation near Springbok

Our last few kilometers of gravel road brings us to the hot springs at Ais-Ais, and after a quick soak we continue on one of everybody’s favorite gravel sections to the junction with the tarmac road near the Orange River, the geographic border between Namibia and South Africa. The border crossing will go quickly, and we use tarmac roads to hurry us along our first few kilometers in South Africa and our simple hotel near Springbok, a quiet town known for it’s tough mining history. We are now in the Northern Cape province, the most sparsely populated and largest province in South Africa

DAY 37

Clanwilliam, Western Cape
348km
Accommodation near Clanwilliam

Short travel day heading south. We have a drastic change in scenery as we leave the Northern Cape province and enter the Western Cape province. Crossing the Olifants River sees immediate effects of irrigation and large, rolling citrus crops. We normally spend the afternoon working on bikes, while guests visit in town and learn about the health effects of rooibos tea, grown here and nowhere else!

DAY 38

Oudtshoorn
400km paved / 80km gravel
Accommodation near Oudtshoorn

To break up our paved roads of the last few days, we will start to sneak in some of our favourite gravel passes today. This is a big day filled with beautiful passes. Our destination is Oudtshoorn which we have stayed in before, but now we get to use the gravel roads to get there, and because of the this we are at a different lodge than a few weeks ago.

DAY 39

Oudtshoorn
Optional Riding Day.
Accommodation near Oudtshoorn

Day off. You’ve earned it. There are wildlife centers to visit, ostriches to ride, or do nothing and sit by the pool and catch up with your blog and diary. If you are keen on more riding, we have a lovely loop set up that takes in fantastic little towns and the mighty Swartberg Pass, a tremendous and beautiful gravel pass that should really be experienced

DAY 40

Arniston
234km paved / 100km gravel
Accommodation near Arniston

No need to repeat roads in the part of South Africa. The geography of the Western Cape province lends itself to so many passes for us to explore. We will head south from Oudtshoorn to George and take back roads to Arniston, and our favourite hotel there. This part of South Africa is blessed with an abundance of short, beautiful mountain passes, both paved and gravel, and we are out to see as many as we can!

DAY 41

Stellenbosch
200km
Accommodation near Stellenbosch

We continue our trek west towards Cape Town, using hidden gravel roads and secondary highways to give us a new glimpse to this changing landscape. The shortest distance is 200 kms, but we will work to the groups preferences, and often double that if riders are keen on a longer day. More twisty passes, vineyards, and well constructed roads are in store for us.

DAY 42

Stellenbosch
Optional Riding Day
Accommodation near Stellenbosch

Take a day off, go shark cage diving, go riding, go on a wine tour, or drink coffee and write postcards in the beautiful old city of Stellenbosch. This is a day to do whatever your body is telling you to do. Another favourite spot to visit is the Franschoek Motor Museum – a epic collections of vehicles in a beautiful setting

DAY 43

Cape Town

Accommodation near Cape Town’s waterfront.

Our last day on the bikes and we modify our day to squeeze in a few more passes – and one more time on Chapman’s Peak Drive, this time in the opposite direction as we pull into Cape Town in mid afternoon and return the bikes. Our hotel is five minutes away, and we relax before dinner. This is our last night together and we will spend it in Cape Towns beautiful V&A Waterfront watching the harbor life and sharing stories.

DAY 44

Fly out

Our last day, and after breakfast the final paperwork is reviewed, and our trip is officially complete. If you are curious to stay in Cape Town or the surrounding areas longer to do more riding, wine tours, shark cage diving, bungee jumping… let us know and we can get you on the right track
