Itinerary Motorcycle tour Taste of the Cape

As a participant in this tour you'll fly to Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape and be met by our staff. We will transfer to your guest house in Addo (around 40 minutes by road) where we will give you a briefing on the trip ahead. The following day we will hit the wonderful road.

When riding there will be a lead rider and on-bike luggage will be provided. Tour participants will navigate using a 'marker' (also known as a 'buddy') system, whereby the rider behind the leader drops off and waits to guide those coming behind.

The riding on this tour is a mix of tarmac, graded dirt roads and some fantastic and remote trails. As far as is possible the tour has been designed to avoid major routes.

Day 1 Port Elizabeth International Airport - Addo

Day 1 Motorcycle tour Taste of the Cape

Arrive at PE, where you will be met and transported (40 mins) to your overnight accommodation, where the Blazing Trails staff will brief you on the adventure ahead and introduce you to 'your' bike. Come early evening, we will gather for a 'braai' – a classic South African meal, cooked over an open fire.

Day 2 Port Alfred

Day 2 Motorcycle tour Taste of the Cape

A super day of riding begins with a ride over Secret Pass, a steep climb through a private reserve brimming with game. The dirt track is a little challenging, but more than worth the effort. A regulation graded dirt road then takes us to Fort Beaufort from where we ace the twisites along the edge of the Frontier Country. We end the day on the Sunshine Coast.

Day 3 Port Alfred - Avontuur

Day 3 Motorcycle tour Taste of the Cape

The journey to our next over-nighter will be mainly on the old Route 62 through the Langkloof, a beautiful, quiet, swooping road through farms and pastureland. The main event begins when we leave the 62 and head over the deliriously beautiful Prince Alfred's Pass. The day ends on the mountain's downside in a fun and characterful stop, with beer and great food.

Day 4 Avontuur - Mossel Bay

Day 4 Motorcycle tour Taste of the Cape

There's plenty more epic Cape riding as we head back to the coast, for lunch at the fashionable beauty spot of Knysna. And again when we pick up the Seven Passes route, for a mix of tar and gravel to George and then on to Mossel Bay, where we will enjoy an evening meal overlooking the ocean.

Day 5 Mossel Bay - Mossel Bay

Day 5 Motorcycle tour Taste of the Cape

There is plenty to do in and around this small coastal town. Popular options include cage diving with great white sharks (conditions permitting) and coastal walks. Less adventurous types might like to visit the interesting museum, or hang out in the numerous bars and restaurants instead.

Day 6 Mossel Bay - Cape Agulhas

Day 6 Motorcycle tour Taste of the Cape

Following a mix of highway and lesser rural roads, both tarred and gravel, we will head for the southern tip of Africa. There should be the opportunity to view local wildlife as we go, with blue cranes and sacred ibis among the avifauna; springbok and blessbok representing the four-legged beasties. We will cross the Breede River on the famous hand-pulled ferry at Malgas, before a visit to Agulhas Lighthouse and the point where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet

Day 7 Cape Agulhas - Oudtshoorn

Day 7 Motorcycle tour Taste of the Cape

After a hearty breakfast we'll be off heading for the mountains and the spectacular Tradouw Pass, which carries us over the mountain ridge that seperates the Klein Karoo Desert from the coastal Cape. From Barrydale we will follow a riding classic – Route 62. This road is a combination of straight scrub-desert cruise and pass-climbing nadgery, as it carries us swiftly through the open spaces, past ostrich farms and timeless colonial villages. We will overnight in the town of Oudtshoorn, among the ostriches and desert landscapes.

Day 8 Oudtshoorn - Addo

Day 8 Motorcycle tour Taste of the Cape

We turn west, towards the coast and pass of the day, the Outeniqua, a tarred snake heading down to the coast. Next, we ride the whole of the Garden Route (some 400km, sticking mainly to the old road, not the main highway). We will take in beautiful coastal views before turning inland, back to our funky backpackers among the lemon groves of Addo.

Day 9 Addo - Addo Elephant National Park

Day 9 Motorcycle tour Taste of the Cape

We have the whole day in which to explore the National Park. Elephant, kudu, warthog, eland, jackal and zebra-sightings are near-certainties. Observations of Cape buffalo, spotted hyena, back rhino and lion are also possible. The Addo flightless dung beetle occurs nowhere else!

Day 10 Addo - Port Elizabeth International Airport

Day 10 Motorcycle tour Taste of the Cape

You are leaving today, so will be transported to the airport for the flight home. Goodbye and keep your chin up as you face the expectation of a cold country, with crowded roads, expensive booze and steaks the size of tupenny bits.
