Beach hopping motorbike adventure tours in Southern Africa

Sunset at Big Bay in Bloubergstrand Cape Town
For adventure motorcycle enthusiasts, Cape Town is such a wonderful place to base oneself in order to start a motorcycle adventure tour. Why? Well for starters Cape Town has some of the most wonderful beaches and coastline in Southern Africa. It also has some amazing mountains. From Cape Town, along the West coast with its colder Atlantic Ocean water, one tends to find long flat white sandy beaches, while in an easterly direction along the warmer waters of the Indian Ocean, we find a mixture of steep rocky cliffs, beautiful cove like rocky and sandy beaches and even some longer wide open sandy beaches. run various tours most of which involve stopping off at the sea front to view the spectacular scenery. The first sunset picture was taken from Big Bay while we were sitting at a local well known seafront hotel called Blue Peter having a few sun downers.

The tours start from Big Bay which is just 20km north of Cape Town central, so depending upon your skill level you can choose to do a 4 day beginner tour called Fairest Cape Tour Route around the Cape Town environs, which mainly follows the coastline from <coords -33.796351,18.458511> Big Bay in Blouberg all around the Cape Town coastline.

For the more experienced and adventurous you can pick the more epic 14 day Cape Mountain and Garden Route Tour that starts off around the Cape Town beaches but then heads up along the Cape Garden Route beaches, but then comes back inland through the mountains.

Other tour routes we take north, up to and into Namibia, depending on the duration, follow the west coast and includes many beach stops. More blogs to come on each of these tours where they meet the beach, with some pictures and detail in the next few months. In the meantime feel free to visit the website and see some of them for yourself. Then get out here and experience it for real!

This blog was initially posted on the website last month.
