CAPE TOWN EXPLORER (N/S)
Cape Town remains one of the most desired destinations in South Africa - and one of the 'must see' destinations of the world. No tour of this country would be complete without a visit to Cape Town and its surrounding towns and attractions.
We have developed a tour that incorporates all the major attractions in Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschhoek and all of the other main attractions of the region - combined with an awe-inspiring ride to or from Pretoria. Our route includes exploration of the lesser-known roads to the coast that allow more time to explore places normally bypassed in the rush to Cape Town.
Our route includes rides through the heart of the country, visiting Bloemfontein, Aliwal North and Graaf Reinet before heading through the Little Karoo to Baviaanskloof and the Garden Route. With great sights and attractions along the way, this gives you ample chance to really explore the road.
From the Garden Route, we travel West towards Cape Town along the incredible coastal route from Aughulas, through Hermanus, Gordon's Bay and into Cape Town. Our optional return ride takes us a little inland to take full advantage of the high number of passes and scenic attractions this truly wonderful route has to offer.
Our tour includes a number of optional ride-outs from our base at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town to wine farms, scenic routes and the most popular attractions. Cape Town has never been so attractive, so join us on this epic journey.

The tour starts with us heading South from Pretoria via Vereeniging, Parys and Bothaville to Bloemontein. We overnight in the capital of the Free State.
Day two sees us travel south towards Aliwal North before heading to Burgersdorp and Middelburg and on to our next overnight stop at Graaf Reinet. Here we have an opportunity to explore this exquisite town and the nearby Camdeboo National Park (Valley of Desolation).
After breakfast, we continue our ride south through the Karoo and towns like Aberdeen and Willowmore before reaching and passing over the Baviaanskloof into the cooler and truly amazing Garden Route at Uniondale and on to our next overnight stop in the magical town of Knysna.
From Knysna, we travel along the coast to Mossel Bay before heading back inland to Oudsthoorn and then to the towns of Calitzdorp, Barrydale and Montague along some of the incredible passes through the mountains. We stop for the night at Montague.
Day five starts with a glorious ride from Montague, over the mountains back to the coast for a stop at Cape Aghulas. We then take the coastal route to our next overnight stop at Hermanus where we have an opportunity to do some whale watching.
Today we travel perhaps the most incredible coastal road in South Africa from Hermanus through Kleinmond and Rooi Els to the seaside town of Gordon's Bay. After a brief stop, we then head directly to Cape Town, arriving at our final stop in the V&A Waterfront.
Day seven is an optional extension that allows you the opportunity to truly explore the wonders of the City and its environs. A range of out-rides are available and you have the opportunity to extend your stay.
What can you expect?
Our Cape Town route has been designed to allow you the opportunity to truly experience this remarkable destination, and a collection of towns and attractions along the way. This is not a direct route - purely because we believe there is more to riding to Cape Town than the usual N1. It includes time to experience the beauty of Bloemfontein and the silence and unique character of the Camdeboo and Little Karoo. We take you along some of the most incredible coastal rides available, and you have adequate opportunity to explore the 'Cape'.
