Never and dull moment, let the adventure begin ... is a tour designed to get the most out of South Africa's country side and the activities it offers. South Africa is a country with raging waters, stunning landscapes, rugged coastlines and modern cities. This tour combines undertaking challenging rides, climbs and descents with a mixture of activities off the bike including the possibility of doing white water rafting, trail hikes through a game reserve, shark cage diving and many more.
Due to the nature of the tour, the layout and destinations can change considerably based on the activities you would like to do.
The first two nights are spent in Johannesburg exploring the city and the surround suburbs. Despite being a major city, Johannesburg is surrounded by vast areas of open countryside which are scattered with fantastic riding trails of which all are different to one another.
The following four nights are spent in the Drakensberg mountain range which is an epicentre for outdoor activities, fantastic riding and tranquil mountain lodges. Three of the four days will be spent doing long trails traversing the mountain tops from one lodge to the next including stops at Dumbe Cottages and Montusi Mountain Lodge. The final day will be used to do a hike along some of the many footpaths and includes a climb up a rickety chain ladder before opening up to glorious view which await the climbers of these trails.
From the Drakensberg, the tour then heads to the base of Sani pass where a number of trails can be ridden to explore the area around the border to the mountain country of Lesotho. The following full day will be used to ride up the 22km climb to the highest pub in Africa for a heart warming drink and lunch before continuing on to ride the Black mountains. The night will be spent at the top of the pass where hearty, home cooked food is served. Early the following morning, an exciting decent down the pass and onto the coastal city of Durban which is perfectly nestled on the warm Indian Ocean. Two nights are spent here before flying back to Johannesburg and the end of tour.
What differentiates this tour from any other is that you can experience South Africa from many other perspectives and not only from in a vehicle or on your bike.
Why not submerse yourself in the countries rivers and surrounding oceans with choices between White water rafting in the Drakensberg, Shark Cage diving an hour off Durban's coast line or give surfing a go in the warm waves of Indian oceans. If water is not for you, maybe you would enjoy the Big Swing from Durban's Moses Mabhida Stadium and across the 220m arch or either abseiling or rap jumping in the Drakensberg. But, if you would prefer to stay on solid ground, zorbing, quad biking or trails walks in games reserves can also be enjoyed.
You choose which activities you would like to do and your tour will be designed to ensure you get to experience everything you wish.
