Motorcycle touring and tours on motorbike around one of the planets 'best kept secrets' has never been easier... South Africa is truly a motorcycle tourist paradise... Please click on and read our clients comments on the 'Tours' page.
The only way to tour any country is from the seat of a motorcycle, even more so a country with brilliantly uncluttered roads and amazingly diverse scenery. Cape Town, The Garden Route, Route 62 (Little Karoo), Great Karoo, God’s Window, Blyde River Canyon, Kruger National Park, Panorama Route, Wild Coast, iSimangaliso Wetlands, Swaziland, Lesotho and much much more is your oyster to be explored.
Due South Motorcycle Tours is owner run. The operations ethos of this motorcycle touring company is that motorbike touring should be based on the simple premise that most people prefer riding in small uncluttered groups, through stunning scenery with the whole experience being enjoyed with like minded people. Overnight accommodations are always diverse avoiding sterile commercial type 'hotels', each overnight accommodation is an experience in itself and has been hand picked. Meals are varied and appetizing, the overall ambiance of the overnight stop adds to the enjoyment enhancing the overall experience. Stops on the road are more often than not hand picked and will include local 'hangouts' not experienced by the average visitor. Chesa-Nyama (informal BBQ) on the roadside anyone! Accommodations are almost always owner run. Wildlife experiences and excursions are always a part of each tour itinerary (primarily Kruger National Park, iSimangaliso Wetlands Park and Great White Shark cage viewing).
The nature of the motorbike touring is such that pillions are equally comfortable touring as long boring A to B riding is avoided with well planned routes on the countries best roads... which are many and varied. South Africa is blessed with incredibly diverse scenery which always impresses. From the dry arid Karoo down to the the balmy Mediterranean Cape coastline up to lush tropical Zululand and into the mighty Drakensburg/Maluti Mountains, through green forest plantations and into the indigenous African bush-veld... South Africa is often referred to as: "the world in one country!"
Several of our riders, with many years riding experience, have commented that South Africa offered them the best and most diverse riding they have ever experienced. Roads are not congested making for wonderful riding in our wide open spaces! At each days close riders are once again awe struck at the quality of riding and natural beauty looking forward to the next days ride. The motorbike tours are primarily road based with the occasional ride on quality gravel in and out of the some viewing sites or overnight spots. Less experienced motorcycle riders are taken care of as the small group nature of the motorcycle tours allow all to enjoy the ride at their own pace and as conditions allow, safety is always paramount.
Using recent model GS series BMW motorcycles the focus being the enjoyment of the entire experience. Motorcycling while discovering the beauty and splendor of South Africa seated on a superb touring motorbike is for perhaps many a once in a lifetime experience. Uncluttered quality roads meandering across amazing countryside is the name of the game...
Lifelong friends either meetup for or are made on motorcycle tours... come down for the experience of a lifetime...
