Due South Motorcycle Tours is owner run and focused on motorcycle tours across South Africa, the 'ethos' of this motorbike touring company lends itself to the simple premise that most people prefer riding in small uncluttered groups, through stunning scenery on excellent motorcycles. Current model BMW GS series bikes are typical.
Overnight Accommodations are always diverse avoiding sterile commercial type 'hotels', each overnight accommodation is an experience in itself, hand picked and often owner run.
Meals are varied and appetizing - from candle lit dinner to a beach 'Braai' (BBQ). The overall ambiance of the overnight stops adds to the enjoyment enhancing the experience.
Coffee and Lunch Stops on the road are more often than not hand picked and will include local 'hangouts' not experienced by the average visitor. This could take the form of 'Chesa Nyama' at roadside (an informal BBQ 'Braai'), 'Bunny Chow' in Durban, lunch at the local 'Biker Pub' or maybe an after ride tasting at the local 'Micro Brewery'.
Wildlife Experiences and excursions are always a part of each tour program (primarily Greater Kruger National Park, iSimangaliso Wetlands Park and Great White Shark viewing).
Pillions are equally comfortable touring as long boring A to B riding is avoided with well planned routes on the countries best roads... of which there are many...
Diverse Scenery with which South Africa is incredibly blessed always impresses. From the dry arid, yet rustically beautiful, 'Karoo' down to the the balmy Mediterranean Cape coastline up to lush tropical 'Zululand' and 'Wild Coast'. The mighty Drakensburg Mountains with its amazingly diverse roads; and on through leafy forest plantations and the iconic African bush-veld. South Africa is often referred to as: 'the world in one country'...
Swaziland and Lesotho. These countries offer amazing mountains and with that comes brilliant riding. Swaziland, the last ruling monarchy on the planet, is often referred to as 'Switzerland in Africa'! While rustic Lesotho is know as 'The Roof of Africa'!
Diversity of Scenery, riders with many years riding experience under the belt have commented that South Africa offered them the best and most diverse riding they have ever experienced... often awe struck at the quality of roads and natural beauty. At days end you will be found sipping on a sun-downer; perhaps a glass of the 'Capes' finest wine or maybe some of the local micro brewers best.
Our Motorcycle Tours are primarily road based, occasionally touching on some quality gravel. The small group nature of the tour never allows you to feel like a 'tourist' being dragged from one local to the next! The less experienced are also taken care of due to the small group nature. Safety is always paramount.
Current Model GS series BMW motorcycles are the norm, we use associate motorcycle rental specialists within South Africa ensuring the best possible ride on current model low mileage motorcycles.
