ABOUT THE ROUTE

 

Discovery tour alternating technical tracks and easier gravel roads.

Lots of trails are waiting for you (e.g. Karretjies, Ouberg, Biedouw and other unforgettable spots). Everything in this tour has been put together to offer you the most enjoyable routes of the area.

Starting from the basecamp in the Tankwa Karoo, the route will bring you through the Cederberg Mountains, before crossing again the Tankwa, up to the Ouberg Pass, and will eventually get you back to the starting point.

Please be aware that although off-road skills are not pre-required, a reasonable level of fitness is strongly recommended in order to fully enjoy the trip.

OTHER INFORMATION

 

This tour only requires basic off-road skills, but although the small displacement dual-sport motorcycles make things easier than with a big adventure bike, a reasonable level of fitness is strongly recommended.

The one drift of the Doring river (day 4) could be flooded (Apr-Nov), however we have alternative options making the tour practicable, regardless of the river level.

.

For off-road newcomers, we recommend to add one more training day at the beginning of the tour.

.

We are happy to organise extra accommodation for you, e.g. on the day before the tour and/or last day, please specify your request in the booking form.

.

.

LESS THAN 3 PAX? 

.

We run the tour for 2 people only, however the day 5 stage falls out and the tour is performed without the 4×4 backup vehicle, which is in standby for the event of an emergency. The bikes are then equipped with waterproof soft bags allowing 2x 12L of personal luggage / person. 

Total NEW duration: 6 days.
