Arrival Day

On arrival at Johannesburg International OR Tambo Airport, you will be met by AAMT and transferred to your hotel in the Cradle of Humankind.  Tonight we “crash” together, no not the motorcycles, but dinner.  Did you know?  When Rhinos meet together, it is known as a “crash of rhinos”.  We welcome each other at an African meat festival dinner.

Day 1: Cradle of Humankind, Magaliesberg Mountain Range and Hartbeespoort Dam

Our 2 wheel motorcycle adventure begins with a slow “charge” from our hotel after a good night’s rest.

We ride the scenic roads of the “Magalies” mountain range.  We stop off at the Cradle of Humankind Museum and get to view the history of Mankind.  We travel to the Rhino and Lion Park to meet the real rhinos of Africa on Safari.  We make our way to an African Cultural Village and experience a tour of the traditional site.  This afternoon we ride our bikes to the lakeside village of Hartbeespoort Dam, where we experience a cable car trip to the top of the Magalies Mountains and its awe-inspiring bird’s eye view of the lake and valleys down below.  After our descent from the mountains, we ride to our guesthouse in the Cradle.

Day 2: Hartbeespoort – Clarens

Today the adventure continues and we ride to the beautiful charming little village of Clarens at the feet of the Maluti Mountains.  We spend the afternoon sampling the craft beer for which this village is famous, as well as exploring it’s small quaint shops and art galleries.  Tonight we fall asleep surrounded by the crisp air of the mountains.

Day 3: Clarens – Drakensberg

After leaving this beautiful little village, we head towards some of the most beautiful motorcycling roads this country has to offer.  We ride through the lush green Golden Gate National Park and its towering cliffs, whilst hugging the Maluti’s.

We stop off at a Basotho Village and enjoy scones and tea made by the local Basotho ladies, while we admire the beautiful rolling hills.  We enjoy an exciting cultural tour of the village and continue on to the Sterkfontein Dam – if the weather plays it’s part, you will be awestruck at the turquoise blue color of this watering marvel.  Continuing on to the “Barrier of Spears”, the Uklalamba Drakensberg Mountain Range.  We ride mountainous roads, twisting hairpin bends with amazing views to our overnight accommodation in the mountains.  Tonight we dine and sleep in the shadows of this magnificent World Heritage site.

Day 4: Drakensberg and Surrounds

We wake to stunning views of the mountains surrounding us and imagine how amazing it will be to soar above them, like an eagle in flight.  We depart to Cathedral Peak, where we meet out pilot and board our “bird” for a scenic flight over the spectacular mountain peaks.  Our flight takes us over these magnificent peaks and we land on top of the mountain to sip champagne and enjoy the views.

After our flight we continue to explore this spectacular area on our motorcycles, there is just too much to see – amazing views of the mountains, stunning roads and beautiful scenery.

Tonight we sleep on the foothills of this formidable mountain range.

Day 5: Drakensberg Foothills – Ballito

Leaving the Drakensberg foothills, Kwa-Zulu Natal Midlands Meander is on the agenda.  As we make our way on our motorcycle through the little towns en route to Durban and the Kwa-Zulu Natal North Coast.  On our way we stop off at one of South Africa’s most historical spots – Nelson Mandela Capture Site.  A humble feeling engulfs you as you climb off your bike and stand on the exact spot of where the world-famous iconic leader was arrested on the 5th of August 1962.  We tour the museum dedicated to his capture and listen in awe to the guides that tell the story of this great man.

But the tropical warm waters of the ocean beckons and we continue to the breathtakingly beautiful coastline of the North Coast of Kwa-Zulu and it’s stunning beaches.  We end our ride at a beautiful beach on this Dolphin Coast.

Tonight, we travel to the port city of Durban, where we dine in a replica phantom ship watching the fish and fierce looking sharks glide past us as we partake in wondrous fare and recall great moments of our Adventure Africa tour, “Salagathle Siza Konana Futi” – Goodbye, till we meet again.  Tonight we fall asleep to the waves crashing on the rocks and beach.
