Curvy mountain roads, stunning coastlines, and African wildlife!

South Africa is also called the "world in 1 country" because there are high mountains and wide plains, rugged coasts, and endless beaches, dry semi-deserts, and almost tropical-looking primeval forests. In addition, there is a wealth of flora and fauna that is second to none.

On this motorcycle tour, you will get to see all of that. In the Drakensberg Mountains, rushing waterfalls await us, and at "God's Window" a view that can only be described as divine. In Kruger National Park you can see lions, elephants, rhinos, and many other wild animals at close range, and in the evening, while enjoying your meal under the starry sky, you can hear the lions roar in the distance. We will immerse ourselves in Zulu culture and the cultivation of wine grapes, which are pressed into some of the world's finest wines in the Cape Town hinterland.
The rest day in Franschhoek is perfect for oenological exploration! With a little luck, you'll be able to spot whales right from the shore, and with a little courage, you might jump off the world's highest Bungy bridge! Of course, we will also ride the famous Chapman's Peak Drive, this magnificent panoramic road high above the roaring Atlantic Ocean, and take the obligatory photo of the famous sign at the Cape of Good Hope. And of course, we’ll ride our motorcycles extensively, because that's what the wonderful routes in this one-world country are made for.

South Africa Tour

Touring South Africa with Edelweiss Bike Travel means I got to meet the Chief of a Zulu village and learned about their history and culture. I even fought and danced with the warriors. We rode up and down Swartberg Pass and saw giraffes and zebras, and more exotic animals on the safari in Kruger National Park. We spent some time at the legendary Cape of Good Hope and, of course, enjoyed the picnics at the sea. The group was fantastic, as was the tour guide and every day was memorable!

South Africa Tour

To sum up this incredible country and the Edelweiss South Africa Tour in a short paragraph is just impossible. Each day was filled with panoramic vistas I never before experienced, with exotic wildlife, the smiling faces of the locals and wonderful and delicious cuisine. Markus, our fearless leader, has been guiding this tour for 20 years, and he made every day an incredible adventure. Highlights are just too difficult to choose. However, the 600 ft. bungee jump off the Bloukrans Bridge sort of stands out in my memory. All of the routes were carefully chosen to stimulate even the most experienced riders. I had a truly spectacular trip!

Südafrika Tour

Unsere allererste Edelweiss-Tour hat uns nach Marokko geführt und wir haben diese Reise so sehr genossen, dass wir sofort das Jahr darauf auch mit Edelweiss nach Südafrika gefahren sind. Beide Touren sind einfach großartig hinsichtlich der Motorradrouten, der spektakulären Landschaft, dem Zusammenhalt in der Gruppe und den fremden Kulturen, die es zu entdecken gilt, wie zum Beispiel die Medina in Marrakesch und Fes oder die Safari und Shakaland in Südafrika. Edelweiss hat wirklich unvergessliche Touren zusammengestellt und wir werden sicher bald wieder ein Motorrad-Abenteuer mit dieser Firma buchen.

Südafrika Tour

Auf einer Edelweiss Bike Travel Tour ist jeder Augenblick unglaublich. Vom ersten bis zum letzten Tag auf unserer Südafrika Tour hat sich Edelweiss um alles gekümmert. Die Motorräder waren im besten Zustand, die Routen und Sehenswürdigkeiten einzigartig. Vor allem die Möglichkeit alleine unterwegs zu sein war für unsere kleine Gruppe ideal. Wir werden mit Sicherheit noch viele Touren mit Edelweiss Bike Travel machen.
