So I presume you know all about slackpacking in the hiking industry if not, it is basically when your luggage is transported from one overnight hut/tent to the next on your behalf.
Cycle Slackpacking is very similar however instead of walking you ride your bike to the next nights’ accommodation arriving there to find all the heavy stuff already waiting for you. Now that sounds absolutely perfect!
Cycling is in my point of view one of the best ways to travel. You are not only getting some exercise but travelling slow enough to really appreciate your surroundings. The other great advantage is that locals are more inclined to start up a conversation with somebody on foot or bicycle than somebody arriving in their luxury vehicle and just popping their head out the window to say hi.
Being a young country most of South Africa’s roads are wide and have a nice and forgiving gradient to cycle along. So when next you visit our beautiful country why not try a Cycle Slackpacking tour.
