A unique cycling holiday showcasing the beauty, diversity and amazing contrasts South Africa has to offer. South Africa is an undiscovered cycling gem. This cycling trip has it all – mountain passes, rich history, abundant wildlife, fine food and wine, and to top it off fantastic weather.
Travelling from Cape Town along the east coast to Port Elizabeth you will be charmed by its beauty. From high mountains, still semi – arid regions, stunning coastlines and indigenous forest we will experience many different Biomes. For the final highlight we visit the Addo Elephant Park for a truly African experience.
The cycling terrain is as varied as the environment, stunning coastal roads, gravel and hard packed forestry roads. There are some challenging climbs and rewardingly long descents. Overall the cycling grade is Moderate/Advanced and a good command of a bicycle will be required.
The trip ends in Port Elizabeth, known as the friendly city, after our final highlight the Addo Elephant Park.
