Your daily tour itinerary on the South Africa motorcycle tour:

Day 01: Flight to South Africa

This evening your Harley® adventure in South Africa starts. After check-in, you will depart from your chosen departure point on an overnight flight with a renowned airline across the African continent to Cape Town. (transfer connection possible)

Day 02: Arrival in Cape Town

In the course of the morning, you will arrive in Cape Town and will be picked up at the airport by our Meet & Greet Service, which will take you directly to the centrally located hotel near the lively V&A Waterfront. Here, you will have the opportunity to have a look around the nearby Waterfront before meeting your local tour guide. This will be followed by a welcome dinner in an African restaurant, with music and shows. Overnight stay in Cape Town.

Day 03: Cape Town

Today is at your leisure. After breakfast, you can start an optional city tour with a visit to Table Mountain. This bus tour includes all the important sights and your local guide will show you the highlights. In the late afternoon, the tour briefing takes place. The rest of the evening is at your leisure and you can spend your time on the nearby Waterfront. Overnight stay in Cape Town.

Day 04: Atlantic Coast - Penguins and Whales, 140 km

In the morning you will be transferred to the rental station where you will take over your machines. After completing the formalities and a short briefing, you will be on your way. You will ride along the national road to Gordon's Bay, where you will have your lunch break. From there you will ride along the picturesque coastal road to Betty's Bay to visit the local penguin colony. Your destination for the day is the old whaling town of Hermanus. The town is now known for its whale caller, which in season points out the whales swimming in the bay. Overnight stay in the Hermanus area.

Day 05: Cape Alguhas - Kapula Candles - Mossel Bay, 420 km

Today the journey goes through the hilly landscape and granary of South Africa. In the morning, the southernmost point of Africa, Cape Alguhas is on the program. There, the Atlantic Ocean meets the Indian Ocean and from the observation platform of the lighthouse there, this natural spectacle can be observed very well from above. In Bredasdorp, you will visit the store of the Kapula Candles. This is where the handmade candles, which are also known in Europe, come from. They make excellent souvenirs or gifts to take home. You will spend your lunch break in Swellendam, which also marks the beginning of the Garden Route. You will reach the coast at Mossel Bay (Shell Bay) in the early evening, along the Garden Route. The sailors Bartolomeus Diaz and Vasco da Gama stopped at this coast long before you. Here, you'll have the opportunity to swim in the Indian Ocean for the first time. Overnight stay in a hotel near the beach in the Mossel Bay area.

Day 06: Garden Route - Knysna - Tsitsikamma NP, 250 km

The Garden Route is one of the most popular travel destinations in South Africa. It officially starts at Swellendam and ends in Hermansdorp, just before Port Elizabeth. Today's tour takes you to the impressive harbor town of Knysna. You will have a coffee break in the harbor before you ride up to the so-called Heads. A short walk will take you high above the cliffs with their unique viewpoints. We continue to the Monkeyland Reserve, which you can visit as part of an optional guided tour. In the course of the afternoon, you will follow a varied route and reach the Tsitsikamma National Park. Overnight stay in Storms River.

TIP: Monkeyland Reserve.

Day 07: Garden Route - Surfer's Paradise J'Bay - Addo Elephant National Park, 230 km

Today you will ride along the Garden Route again and a little bit on the famous Route 62. Just in time for your coffee break, you will reach the world-famous surfer's paradise Jeffries Bay or J'Bay for short. The outlet stores of Billabong Surfer Girl, Country Feeling, Quicksilver, Rip Curl, and Jeffrey's Bay South Africa Surf Clothing guarantee not only surfers a cheap shopping fun. At lunchtime, you will arrive at your accommodation near Addo and relax at the pool. In the late afternoon, you start for one of the best highlights of the tour, a combined sunset and evening safari, in an open jeep, with snacks, beer, and wine. The first settlers, in the Addo region, unfortunately, decimated the elephants in the old days to just a dozen to protect their fields and crops. This led to the establishment of the National Park back in 1931, which today is once again home to the BIG FIVE - elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, and leopard. Overnight stay in the Addo area.

Day 08: Klein Karoo - Graaff Reinet - Valley of Desolation, 250 km

Today, your tour leads you through the Klein Karoo region to the next highlight. The old town of Graaff Reinet, with over 200 of its listed buildings, is one of the best-preserved historical sites in the country. With a bit of luck, you will get to see some of the numerous blue monkeys and antelopes on the way. Before the lunch break, we will ride over the narrow and winding road, into the Valley of Desolation National Park. After a short walk, you will have a fantastic view of the village, the valley, and the Karoo. In time for lunch, you will arrive at your centrally located hotel. There you can relax by the pool or take a walk around this beautiful town. Overnight stay in Graaff Reinet.

Day 09: Karoo - Oudtshorn - Ostrich Farms, 340 km

Actually, Oudtshorn would be just a sleepy little town behind the mountains, if there were not some big ostrich farms. The old heyday of the ostrich farms is over, but the meat and leather production has become profitable again for the local breeders. When visiting one of these farms you will get an interesting guided tour and an insight into today's use of this unique bird. For dinner, of course, fresh ostrich fillet is on the menu. This, paired with one of the best local wines makes the evening perfect. Overnight stay in the Oudtshorn area.

Day 10: Route 62 - Port Wine and Whisky - Ronnies Sex Shop - Country Pumpkin, 335 km

This morning we will continue our journey along the famous Route 62, which is comparable to the American Route 66, only a bit smaller, but at least as charming. It originally served to open up the Klein Karoo. The first stop is the Boplaas Wine Estate with its excellent port wines and local whiskies. On the way, you will of course visit the obligatory biker pubs, like Ronny's Sex Shop or the Country Pumpkin in Barrydale. The owners are, of course, all enthusiastic Harley® riders and always look forward to a biker visit. In the afternoon there are three more beautiful passes and you will spend the night in the Touws River area, the whole region is known for its dried fruit industry and the countless orchards bear witness to this.

Day 11: Cape Winelands - The 7 Passes Tour, 325 km

In the morning, you start with the first beautiful stretch over the passes in the Winelands. After a coffee break in the middle of the wine region, you will ride the two winding Baviaanskloof and Du Toitskloof passes. After your lunch break at a wine estate, you will take the Franschoek Pass under your wheels. The Winelands, with famous towns such as Robertson, Paarl, Franschoek, and Stellenbosch, is just an hour's ride from Cape Town. The region is home to the oldest settlements of Europeans on the black continent. The very fertile area is especially known for its agricultural products and, of course, the wine. Over some more challenging mountain passes, you will reach the heart of the wine country in the early evening. Overnight stay in the Stellenbosch area.

Day 12: Cape of Good Hope - Chapman's Peak - Cape Town, 160 km

You leave Stellenbosch and the wine region. From there, you ride back to the coast, where you meet the Atlantic Ocean again, at Muizenberg. Along the coast, you will reach the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point. We continue on the famous scenic road, Chapman's Peak Drive, to the idyllic Hout Bay, which is known for its seal colonies and the white sharks that are known to hunt there on the offshore islands. In time for the lunch break, you will arrive back in Cape Town via Camps Bay, where you will spend the last two days. After dropping off the motorcycles, you will have the afternoon and evening at your leisure. Visit one of the many restaurants on the Victoria & Albert Waterfront. Overnight stay in Cape Town.

TIP: Sunset on the sailing catamaran, followed by dinner in the best seafood restaurant in Cape Town (depending on the weather possibly also on the following day).

Day 13: Free time in Cape Town

Every adventure has an end and, unfortunately, today is the last day in Cape Town for you. We recommend the visit to the Waterfront, Long Street, and Greenmarket Square for shopping or taking one of the helicopter tours offered locally. Overnight stay in Cape Town.

TIP: Helicopter tour over the bays around Cape Town and Table Mountain.

Day 14: Return flight to Europe

Depending on the departure time, the morning is at your disposal for the last explorations in Cape Town. During the day, you will be transferred to Cape Town Airport. Day or night flight with a renowned airline to your chosen departure point (transfer possible).

Day 14/15: Arrival in Europe

Arrival at your chosen departure point in the late evening or the course of the next morning and end of the trip.
