Cape Town to Windhoek (Namibia). April 26 – May 04, 2020
Join us on this epic journey from Cape Town at the southern tip of Africa to Windhoek, capital of Namibia.
Your adventure begins at the foot of the iconic Table Mountain in Cape Town, voted the worlds most beautiful city for the seventh straight year in 2019. Each day a new changing landscape, from the lush coastal Winelands of the Cape to the stark deserts of Southern Namibia.
This tour includes two of the worlds greatest and most famed attractions, Fish River Canyon and Sosusvlei. Fish River Canyon is the second largest canyon on the planet, and although smaller than Grand Canyon at 100 miles long is a marvel not to missed. At Sosusvlei you’ll find the giant red dunes, one of the worlds most photographed natural attractions as well as the Dead Vlei and the renowned salt pans. The tour sets aside an entire day to visit these two marvels along with the nearby Sesriem Canyon.
We’ll ride tracks through the iron oxided red sandstone mountains of the Cederberg, the rugged canyons of the Richtersveld Transfrontier Park and the deserts of the Namib Nakluft National Park. A rest day in the old German coastal Town of Swakopmund with its fine restaurants , waterfront and classic period German architecture gives time to recharge before heading up to Windhoek through the Khomas Hochland / Gamsberg Mountains.
Although this tour takes us through some of the most rugged and remote territory in Southern Africa the tracks we’ve chosen won’t require crazy enduro levels of biking skills. You would need to be comfortable on gravel roads with the possibility of some sandy and rocky tracks along the way. Conditions constantly change due to extreme weather and road maintenance is sporadic which turns every tour into an adventure, even for your seasoned guide.
A four wheel drive support vehicle and trailer will accompany the tour on the entire route, carrying all our gear and providing cold refreshments and snacks along the way. They carry all your gear, fuel in remote zones and provide backup support like puncture repair and first aid.
We hope you’ll join WildWood on this epic journey through some of the most beautiful landscapes to be found anywhere in the world.The riding although challenging is recommended for the average skilled tourer. Our rental fleet of KTM690R and Husqvarna 701 bikes are ideally suited to the terrain, providing a great balance between comfort and ability to conquer the tougher tracks.
