Overview
This motorcycle tour will immerse you in some of the most breathtaking scenery in South Africa. We will ride stunning coastal roads, nine mountain passes and thrilling gravel roads that stretch on through vast, empty landscapes.

This tour is also a ghost ride. We'll ride along paths trod by a captivating cast of heroes who shaped the life of South Africa. We'll track the beginning and end of Nelson Mandela's time in prison. We'll encounter the legend of the Watcher of the South and the creation of Table Mountain as told in Xhosa mythology.

We'll discover how the mountains we ride in were used to measure the size of the Southern Hemisphere. We'll see how the water that flows from Table Mountain made it possible to build a trading station - and eventually a city here.

We are confident this tour will give you lifelong memories of incredible motorcycling and a group of new friends: ghosts from the past as well as the Ride Down South crew.

Brilliant 21 day Adventure which delivered many positive surprises with a small diverse group of 4 riders + Guide Andy who did an exceptional job.I would strongly reccommend to anyone of any age (I am 63 young ) who wants to blow out the cobwebs & do some adventure riding with very nice accommodations waiting at the end of the day.

Where do I start. What an amazing day we had with Andrew absolutely amazing tour guide. Having been on other tours with different companies across the globe who don’t really know the history ect it was great that Andrew knew what he was taking about. He knows all the history behind each stop and is happy to answer any questions you may have. Didn’t feel rushed at all throughout the day and he even stopped to point out things I didn’t notice. At the end of the day he even recommended different routes we could take on our own bike and was happy to share his experiences with different areas of South Africa. 10 out of 10 would recommend him to anyone that is looking to explore on a motorbike Amazing day thank Andrew
