From Albertinia to The Wilderness
Once onto the N2, it is initially a single lane wide road with hard shoulder but soon turns into a motorway, so makes for easy travel. The first picture below is the first sight you get from an elevated position on the motorway to see the sea and coast for miles. it was taken between Mossel bay and George and is the start of the Garden Route proper.

But my favourite ever since I came here many years ago is the Wilderness for a spectacular beach view. I just love this surprises you on the motorway too, as you come round the corner you see this incredible view.

They do Paragliding from this area and I was fortunate to see them doing so using the cliff below to gather updrafts.

Bike still in good order aside from the leaky shock seals
Well by now it was 16:51 and I still had a good few hundred kilometres to go, hence not too many more pictures of this awesome part of the world.

More tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle adventure tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.
