wdh-ct-tour-header

Contrasting and changing sceneries: experience the untouched Namibian landscape and northern Cape region until famous Table Mountain finally welcomes you to the vibrating metropolitan city & beach life of Cape Town.

This tour is probably the most diverse tour in our programme: 12 amazing travel days across almost 3000 km will leave a lasting impression on you – it seems as if you have literally travelled across the world.... Departing from our „home base“ Windhoek Mountain Lodge the route leads through central highlands and farmlands of Khomas Hochland, the legendary Namib Desert and Sossusvlei, goes further south to harbour town of Luderitz, the dry vast plains of diamond’s „Sperrgebiet“ and Aus to the border of South Africa at Orange River. Through Richtersveld and Namaqualand the tracks lead to Atlantic Ocean breezes with stop-overs at the coast, before crossing the marvellous Cedar Mountains and entering the valleys of fruit plantations, winelands and lovely wide cultural landscapes of the Western Cape region. Visiting Cape Agulhas where Indian and Atlantic Ocean merges, Hermanus, the Cape of Good Hope and eventually come along the famous Chapman’s Peak leading to our final destination, the vibrating city of Cape Town. A tour full of diversity and contrasts ... colourful and maritime life, coastal roads and green countrysides, fabulous accommodation and culinary delights, lonesome gravel and farm roads, mountain passes and desert impressions across two countries.

Tour profile: 12 riding days/15 travel days. Gravel roads, fairly remote, smaller farm tracks and paved mountain passes. Daily stages of between 250 and 350km. Total distance approx. 3000 km. Please mind our information concerning riding skills here.
