‘Awaken the inner Dakar racer that lives in your heart’

This is a tough ride for experienced motorcycle riders with at least some sand riding experience. We travel light with a support vehicle joining us at the end of each day and on the route, where possible. Although lodgings are limited due to the remote areas we ride, you’ll be surprised by their hospitality and comforts. Even a night tenting on a remote beach will enhance the overall experience.

What you are unlikely to encounter is traffic and shiny sports cars.

Orange River Motorcycle Tour

Day 1: We head north, leaving the slopes of Table Mountain behind us, with an easy morning ride through the Cape Winelands and then along our first Karoo tracks to our first overnight.

Day 2: Great gravel roads into the Tankwa-Karoo National Park and some iconic dirt passes. A very special dessert tented camp awaits.

Day 3: Our longest day through the dessert plains of the Northern Cape up to the Orange River and guest house on the largest date farm in the southern hemisphere.

Day 4:  We follow the Orange (Gariep) River along challenging sand and rocky tracks to the beginning of the Richtersveld National Park. Get that ‘Dakar’ ride feeling. Expect not to see another person on most of this route.

Day 5: A much needed rest day at our luxury tented resort and perhaps a cruise down the Orange on a semi-rigid canoe.

Day 6: Well rested we tackle the toughest day, riding the rocky dry riverbeds and 4×4 tracks of the of the Richtersveld. Be mesmerized by the unique rugged beauty of this dessert kingdom. An old world country hotel awaits to reflect on a special day on the bike.

Day 7: A shorter day with some stunning elevated two track riding in the morning and easier flowing gravel mountain passes to a luxury tented guest farm.

Day 8: Today we head for the west coast with 150km of tough sandy two track. Experience the beauty of riding these remote uninterrupted coastal tracks with the ocean only meters to your right. We leave the ocean and spend the evening in the northern area of the Cederberg Conservancy.

 Day 9 A leisurely breakfast before we head south through the Cederberg and back to Cape Town and our journey’s end.

Consider a special discounted Peninsula Tour the day prior to your tour and get to see the greater Cape Town, our stunning coast line, Cape Point, Chapmans Peak drive, Signal Hill, Table Mountain and the famous African penguins of the Boulders Beach Penguin Colony, Simon’s Town.

Price includes  bike rental, an experienced rider guide, back up vehicle, bed and breakfast, as well as selected suppers.
