With its rich diversity of wildlife, history and culture mixed with modern comfort maintained roads, South Africa is an inspiring destination for a motorcycle holiday.
10 Days – Royal Enfield South Africa Tour – Cape Town round trip.
The legend is alive! Royal Enfield, the iconic motorcycle brand, has long since proven that classic design and modern technology can exist in harmony.
In 2020 we give you the unique opportunity to ride our most popular tour of South Africa on these unique bikes. The route is largely based on the Cape Conquest Tour, which we adapted in order fit to the riding style of the noble Enfield.
The Cape Peninsula, the beautiful coastal Route 44, ‘Shark Alley’, Cape Agulhas, the famous Route 62 through the Little Karoo, the imposing Swartberg Pass and majestic Meiringspoort all feature in this tour. Along the road, you will be able to go cage diving with sharks. We also spend a night in a tented game lodge enjoying the unparalleled starlit southern sky at night whilst been treated to an afternoon game drive and more. A ride over the iconic Swartberg Pass will lead us into the Great Karoo where you will experience authentic Karoo hospitality in a quaint village.
A rest day is spent in Storms River on the ‘Garden Route’ where the Tsitsikamma Forest and Storm River Mouth take centre stage. A ride along the ‘Garden Route’ will allow for more stunning mountain pass riding as we head back into the Little Karoo with yet another authentic experience, an overnight on Route 62.
Most of the tour will be tar-based, but there are some excellent gravel roads that are a joy to ride on a Royal Enfield motorcycle.
The tour will start and end in Cape Town, where we highly recommend you spend a day or two exploring the city and its surroundings if you have the time.
