South Africa Tour

SAT

South Africa | Swaziland

A fascinating tour through a land full of virtues just waiting to be explored on a motorcycle.

South Africa’s great mountain roads provide incredible views, its safaris are full of wildlife, its brilliantly colored flora lights up the terrain and its friendly locals add to a trip brimming with memories to be made.

Whether you choose to ride on your own or join the tour guide, the daily briefings will give many riding options. After long, adventure-packed days on this 2,500-mile motorcycle tour, you’ll have many stories to tell each night over an exquisite dinner in an Old World English-style hotel or a modern resort at the beach. Native South African dishes are influenced by Indian cuisine and also reflect the influence of the Dutch people who immigrated here in the 1600s. You’ll find many menu selections loaded with fresh local fruits and vegetables.

 

From Johannesburg, the riding is easy as we head east toward Waterval Boven on curvy roads. Then we’ll meander north toward Blyde River Canyon, which leads to the fantastic riding and vistas of Kruger National Park, where we’ll spend a day on a safari looking for big game. The next days, we’ll ride through the heart of Swaziland and on to Shakaland, where King Shaka ruled. This South Africa motorcycle tour offers a variety of riding excursions, including the coastal Garden Route, but will occasionally divert inland to catch some mountain passes and a stop in Oudtshoorn to ride an ostrich at a local ostrich farm.

 

Perhaps your most outstanding memory of this wonderful trip will be the ride along Chapmans Peak, where the road is carved into red rock 300 ft above sea level! This is one of the most spectacular twisty roads on the planet and leads to the Cape of Good Hope, where you’ll watch the gigantic surf of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet and crash against the rocky cliffs!

These Edelweiss tours are just awesome for making every moment count. From the first day of our South Africa Tour to the last, everything was prepared in advance. The motorcycles were all excellent, the routes and attractions well selected. The option to be a little independent suited our group, too. We will be back for sure.
