Adventure Bike Safaris offers adventure biking and guided Motorcycle Tours in the Drakensberg, South Africa.
Below is an example itinerary.
Riding the quieter Old Main Road, to our first stop at the interesting and infamous Comrades Marathon Wall of Honour, a mostly unobserved but amazingly interesting feature on our doorstep. Then a short motorway positioning ride through Pietermaritzburg to Howick and then back onto the old road, with then next stop at the Nelson Mandela capture site and monument at Tweedie, Midlands, then to The Notties Hotel for breakfast.
On amazingly scenic roads, we pass through high country farmland and commercial forests, with the route running parallel to The Drakensberg Mountains, with the most beautiful and unlimited views of The Berg, until the first overnight at White Mountain Inn.
The next day we depart from breakfast riding the same gravel road road, with it’s Berg views and on to Spioenkop Mountain, where we enjoy the specialist services of accredited Battlefields guide Shane Spargo. Shane has a passion for Anglo Zulu and the Anglo Boer Wars and gives the most captivating and often animated account of this noteworthy battle.
The country riding from Winterton, through Colenso and Weenen is easy going cruising where the scenery makes the miles melt away. We visit the Winston Churchill capture site and monument, until reaching the very biker friendly Imbabala Lodge at Muden. Here if you’re lucky the giraffe and zebra will come for their own ‘sundowners’ at a watering point directly in front of the lodge veranda.
The next day after breakfast its homeward through Middelrus and The Karkloof. This segment has less of the historical and landmark features, but those are ‘substituted’ with enormous vistas on long stretches of unoccupied big country gravel and then into the scenic wonderland of The Karkloof, where a person would think that their dreams had taken them to The Yukon.
