Description

With an average of 320 kilometers and 4 - 6 riding hours on the motorcycle per day, we are very flexible. There are enough opportunities for stops in between. Depending on the wishes of the participants, there is also the possibility to ride a few kilometers off the paved roads. Offroad.

From Pretoria, we head to the Lowfeld, where we stay overnight in Mbombela (Nelspruit), Mpumalanga. After a first night near the Kruger National Park, we ride to eSwatini. From the Kingdom, we move toward the coast. St. Lucia in iSimangaliso Wetlands Park is a place in South Africa where it is not uncommon to encounter a hippo within a town. Surf City Durban has a chic suburb called Umhlanga where we snack the following day before heading for the Drakensberg Mountains.

On the Sani Pass in Lesotho, we find the highest bar in Africa at 2873 meters above sea level. The way there is stony and steep. If you don't want to face this challenge, you can enjoy the ride in an organized tour with a four-wheel ride vehicle. Back in Underberg, we set off the next day for the jewel of the Wildcoast, Port St. Johns.

We leave this authentic piece of Africa at the Umzimvubu River in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela towards Buffalo City. From Port Elizabeth, we travel along the Garden Route to Mosselbay, the penultimate overnight stop before we begin our journey via Cape Agulhas to Cape Town.

With every kilometer ridden, the landscape, the people, and the climate change. A trip that is also suitable for beginners and returners.
