Starting From Heart



Embark on an exciting motorcycle tour that unveils the captivating landscapes, rich wildlife, and diverse cultures of South Africa.

Our tour is your gateway to experiencing the absolute best that the Western Cape has to offer. From the rhythmic crash of ocean waves to the awe-inspiring grandeur of majestic mountains, from traversing desert landscapes to meandering through lush, sun-drenched vineyards – this is your ticket to a whirlwind of unforgettable moments.


Day 1 | Arrival in Cape Town
Upon your arrival in Cape Town, you’ll be warmly greeted at the airport and whisked away to start your adventure. Depending on the weather, you have the exciting opportunity to ascend Table Mountain. This iconic landmark provides a panoramic view of the city and the ocean, a fitting introduction to the natural beauty you’ll experience throughout your journey.

Day 2 | Cape Peninsula Ride
Today, your motorcycle adventure truly begins. The day’s route will lead you through the lush and green forest areas of Kirstenbosch and Constantia, Cape Town’s famous vinyards, to the quaint coastal towns Muizenberg, Kalk Bay and Simonstown, where you have the opportunity to visit Cape Town’s famous penguins. As you wind your way along the 130km route, we pass by the Cape Nature and the stunning Misty Cliffs, before the famous Chapman’s Peak Drive awaits. This coastal road offers exhilarating twists and turns with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. Optional visits to the Cape of Good Hope and Boulders Beach, home to adorable penguins, add unique experiences to your day.

Day 3 | Cape Town via Hermanus to Cape Agulhas
Leaving Cape Town behind, you venture along a 250km route. The scenic ride takes you through Hermanus, renowned for its whale watching opportunities. The journey continues along a mix of tar and smooth gravel roads through the quaint South African village Elim to Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of Africa, where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. Along the way, you’ll enjoy riding along the famous Clarence Drive where you can catch glimpses of the Rooi Els Penguins, a delightful encounter with South Africa’s diverse wildlife.

Day 4 | Cape Agulhas via Malgas to Barrydale
Today’s ride encompasses 170km of gravel roads, introducing you to the rugged beauty of South Africa.

As you navigate the challenging but rewarding Troudow Pass, you’ll be captivated by the untamed landscape before we turn in for the day at the quaint and artsy town Barrydale.

Day 5 | Barrydale via R62 to Knysna
Embarking on a 300km journey, you follow the famous R62 route, one of the most scenic drives in the country. Along the way, you’ll make a stop at Ronnie’s Sex Shop, a quirky pub and international landmark. This day perfectly combines the joy of riding with unexpected and delightful cultural encounters. While the road is long, it is a beautiful tar road that you will enjoy cruising on and watching the beautiful scenery pass by. We will ride along the Outiniqua pass – or if you desire more of a challenge, follow the quaint 17km Montagu Pass down to the Garden Route. From here, enjoy the stunning ocean views while we head to our final destination Knysna.

Day 6 | Knysna – Rest Day
