South Africa is a feast for the senses: day after day of stunning landscapes from rolling vineyards to awe-inspiring coastlines. Luxurious lodge and resort accommodation, incredible gourmet cuisine, and world famous wines make this undoubtedly our ‘Queen Tour.’
This unforgettable 18-day, 1,200-kilometre bicycle adventure lets you experience a remarkable country of amazing contrasts. The tour starts in Port Elizabeth. Our first event is a safari through Addo Elephant Park, a vast wilderness reserve. Have your camera ready for close-ups of roaming elephants, giraffes, antelopes and rhinos. The Garden Route along the Indian Ocean comes next. Famous for tropical forests, exotic birds and plants, reed-banked rivers and pristine beaches, it offers cyclists scenic and quiet alternate routes. Once we leave the coast at Mossel Bay, the road climbs over Robinson Pass and winds down into the land of the ostrich.
Called the Klein Karoo, its magnificent landscapes feature towering cliffs and clear streams. The abundance of trees and other indigenous vegetation makes it one of South Africa’s most diverse natural regions. Then our cycling journey takes us through the winelands, a picturesque countryside dotted with vineyards, Cape Dutch homes, and historical villages such as Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Here, splendid wines are grown, and top chefs create fine international cuisine for us to sample. Not only here will we rest in first class and authentic guest houses and lodges.
No words can adequately describe the scenic beauty that awaits us at the Cape of Good Hope. It’s here that the African continent dramatically drops into the sea. Our last leg leads into Cape Town. From spectacular Chapman’s Peak Drive – it hugs a near-vertical mountain face – we have breathtaking views of the sandy bays below. Climbing famous Table Mountain at sunrise and exploring Cape Town, one of the world’s most beautiful cities, are a fitting finale for our highly enjoyable and sporty journey.
