Garden Route Motorcycle Tour 2019
Bikenbiker and indiMotard in collaboration with Sama Tours (SA) bring you a unique BMW motorcycle experience in South Africa. This is our second year that we are running this tour and we are making this tour even more unique with the famous Garden Route starting from Cape Town.
This EXCITING tour takes in the best Tarmac and Dirt roads of South Africa’s
Famous Garden Route. Starting in Cape Town, we tour the Cape Peninsula and sleep on an authentic wine farm in the Cape Winelands. Along the way, we ride over 200km of beautiful coastal roads with the Atlantic Ocean on one side, and breathtaking mountains on the other.
Next up, we ride towards awe-inspiring Mountain Passes to Knysna. The
Garden Route is famous for its beautiful Tar and Dirt passes that cut into the Rugged mountains.
We spend a night in Knysna where we marvel at the Knynsa head and then
carry on the ride to Tsitsikamma Nature Reserve. Those brave enough can do the World’s Highest Bungee on the way.
We arrive at our Private Safari Park and spend the evening on Safari. Here we
can see the magnificent BIG 5- Lion, elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, and Leopard. Also
included is a trip to Addo Elephant Park.
Next up we visit Cape Agulhas- the Southern-most tip of Africa! We always
have a party here to celebrate reaching the point for the cold Atlantic meets the Warm Indian Ocean. From Cape Agulhas, we ride Route 62 through the Karroo Desert to Oudtshoorn- the Ostrich Capital of South Africa. Here we tour an ostrich farm and the Cango Caves. We also include the infamous Swartberg Pass- a major bucket list Item for Adventure Bikers.
And lastly, we wind our way back to Cape Town.
