Have you been daydreaming about the great coastal road of South Africa? Are you a motorcycle appreciator? We have good news for you: Your next travel destination could be the Cape region, experienced on a Harley. Tell winter good-bye and enjoy summer in southern Africa!

On the Garden Route, you're exploring the Cape area by day and enjoying great food and renowed local wine in the evening. You'll be stopping by Mossel Bay with its amazing sea view and its giant, the southern right whale, that spends its summers here. Even after seeing those magnificent sea mammals no journey to southern Africa would be complete without seeing the «Big Five» (lions, rhinoceroses, elephants, buffalo and leopards) on a safari and staying at a game resort. Cruising down the legendary Route 62 you will also visit Oudtshoorn, and its well known ostrich farm and its vast Cango caves. Among bikers, the area is a fixture in any South African bike tour. Another highlight of the trip is a visit to the southernmost point of Africa, the Cape Agulhas.

Your Swiss travel guide Rolf Luchsinger, a passionate Harley rider himself and a  well known specialist for South Africa, will lead you to the most beautiful places of his second homeland, off the beaten path and ensuring Swiss quality on this dream journey to South Africa.

Contact us so we can reserve you a spot on this truly unique expirience.
