Unique in the world. The land of enormous contrasts. The surroundings on our trip will change as fast as a traffic light in Amsterdam, as you will drive on asphalt, then on gravel, then by shrubs and bushes to reach a river beside an orange plantation or the white dunes of Atlantis with the famous feshfesh. Rock surfaces and steppes to the hundreds of South African wine estates.
Not only is nature diverse, animal live is too. You will see penguinsonce you’ve just welcomed a monkey famil. A snake nearly experiencing his last ride anxious to paradise and you will see Mr. turtle running for his life. Artis literally becomes child’s play.
South Africa is also a land of great contrasts of wealth and poverty. Millions live in the townships, shanty towns without gas, light, water or toilets. But South Africa is also a very prosperous country, the standard of living can be is just as high as in the Netherlands.
The program is very varied. The landscape changes every session. In the morning you will ride in a totally different environment than in the afternoon. We will ride our first miles on famous Chapman’s Peak Drive in Cape Town. We follow the winding mountain roads in the Cederberggbied. Time to enjoy the breathtaking African scenery! We will have a heavy morning ride with rocky roads along deep ravines. If possible, a river crossing and a steephill climb.We follow the Rooibos Heritage route to the riverbeds of Clanwilliam.
We continue our journey to the African West Coast with its icy cold sea. We have morning drives with some technical challenges.We follow the railway track along the African West Coast. Till there is some playtime in in the white dunes of Atlantis. Finally we will even have an encounter with African wildlife at Stellenbosch. The surface will vary from firm to rock, gravel and sand drift. Especially the latter will be trained in the stark white Atlantis and be ridden.
Each night we will sleep in truly unique locations which you can only find in South Africa. We will sleep under mosquito nets directly under an insane starry sky. Where you can see two other galactic systems on a crystal clear night. We will sleep in basic tents two meters from the ocean. But there will also be high-end accommodation in Stellenbosch.
Dining will be in African traditions and cultures. No scary fare but delicious fish and meat braai (bbq). Indigenous dishes prepared by local people.
