South Africa has so much to offer – and exploring this beautiful region in the form of a Cape Town bike tour is something special. The stunning landscape never fails to impress, it’s sheer diversity ensuring that the cyclist is constantly entertained. The elephants in Addo national park for example, are not to be missed. The Addo National park was founded as far back as 1931 as a reserve for 11 remaining elephants in the area. These days the park houses more than 450 elephants, 400 Cape buffalo and 48 highly endangered black rhino. On day one of the bike tour the cyclists are handed in the form of a game drive, the unique opportunity to experience these wild animals in their natural habitat.
A particular highlight of the tour are the Swartberg Mountains – of which the cyclists experience up close and personal. Meiringspoort runs roughly from south to north and the impressive gorge cut by the Groot River allows for a beautifully scenic cycle. The imposing Swartberg Mountains loom, and the 180 foot hight Rust en Vrede’ Waterfall provides the perfect location for a spot of lunch under the cool shade of the trees. As throughout the entire Cape Town bike tour, carefully selected accommodation is provided, and after lunch next to the waterfall, a short cycle to the well-kept Mountain Holiday Resort awaits, as does a swim in the cool pool. Just reward after a hot few hours cycling!
