These are the bigger tours for the first half of 2023.
I’ll add the shorter and local rider closer to the time.
– Orange River / Richtersveld is likely for spring (August)
– Baviaanskloof , Ben 10 , and similar 3-5 day unsupported rides will also be slotted in throughout the year.
March 31 – April 12. Wild Coast / Lesotho / Eastern Cape Drakensberg (Ben 10)
– This ones a biggie. Three of our best shorter tours in one awesome package.
– Transkei coastal tracks / Lesotho mountains and best of the legendary Ben 10 Challenge . Rest day at Semonkong Lodge and a visit to the Maletsuyane Falls.
– Sadly already sold out but if we have some more interest I can squeeze in another tour back to back.
