Friends and business partners have been living in South Africa for many years, they report similar things. On our tours so far we have been warmly welcomed everywhere, which also reflects the friendliness and openness of the South Africans. If you have any questions on this topic, please contact us!|

Small group for maximum fun
It is important to us that you can enjoy this tour. Therefore, we make sure that the group fits well together and is not too big (max. 8 people).
Spring and late summer are the ideal travel season for South Africa. The temperatures are then perfect for leisurely cruising on a motorcycle (e.g. a Harley-Davidson Ultra Glide) through the wide valleys around Montagu and along Route 62. The Garden Route National Park has a very special flair when everything begins to bloom in October. With a little luck, you can also watch whales directly from the shore in the small town of Hermanus. Stellenbosch has a very special charm with its numerous wineries such as Ernie Els, Spiers, Kleine Zalze, and the picturesque town centre.
We'll ride - even just for you
