Join a thrilling 10-day motorcycle tour passing through Cape Town, its famous wine region, safari reserves, breathtaking mountains, historic areas and remote bushland.
An overland safari through the heart of South Africa, the Drifters Enfield Motorcycle Tour is a must for bikers who crave adventure.
The tour combines the thrill of riding a classic Royal Enfield motorbike with a taste of South Africa’s history plus the joy of safaris, diverse cultures, dramatic geology and breathtaking scenery. In all, it’s an epic ride.
With a support vehicle and guide, bikers venture into little known regions plus game reserves, wide open plains, towering mountains, historic battlefields and breathtaking coastlines.
Starting with a spectacular ride along Cape Town’s coast, the 10-day trip motors through the famous Stellenbosch wine region before zooming inland through the region’s spectacular mountains.
Bikers head through the evocative Karoo plains then up to the Swartberg Mountains. Venturing into safari reserves in these areas, the tour includes game drives to view African wildlife, plus shared accommodation with ensuite bathrooms throughout the trip.
“Motorcyclists on a trip like this will get a genuine feel for Africa, asides from the joy of driving through magnificent scenery and fascinating historic sites,” said tour leader Christiaan Steyn, a Boer descendant.
The trip culminates exploring the region around Hopetown and Kimberley – areas famous for diamond mining and featuring various historic sites of the Anglo-Boer War.
The trips are scheduled departures, which are ideal for individuals or groups but Australian travel agent Adventure Destinations can tailor specific itineraries for small groups. The Royal Enfield 500cc Classic Military models and helmets are supplied by Drifters, which has imported a fleet of 16 new bikes into South Africa.
The motorbike adventure is just one of many in the newly released Drifters brochure ‘Southern & East Africa Adventure Wildlife Tours’. Monthly departures are from $3500 per person.
Bikers, join this trip in search of adventure … it’s not your ordinary guided tour!
