In the Zulu language, Vuka means to “awake” or to “arise“.
That’s exactly what we aim to do – awake the inner adventure rider in those wishing to experience an unforgettable on and off-road biking adventure.
Many people have commented to us that commercial bike adventure tours in South Africa are mostly scenic tar roads, without a true rural African experience that can only be experienced on good dirt roads, mountain passes, nature reserves and the like.
After I had been approached for the umpteenth time about organising such a trip, incorporating the best of both (considering that we have personally ridden extensively through rural South Africa), we decided to set up a tour incorporating a true adventure bike experience. We have now put together the “mother” of all trips which will ensure all those wishing to come, an unforgettable experience of the rural dirt roads – added to good scenic tar roads and mountain passes – around the Western Cape (Garden Route) of South Africa.
The entire route is easily done by riders who have had a basic taste of dust and dirt road conditions. However, only one route (Unesco World Heritage site – Baviaanskloof) is a bit challenging. There is, however, an alternative B road route (tar) around for those not wanting, nor able, to experience this, or those who are carrying a pillion. However, Baviaanskloof is on every local adventure biker’s “to do before I die” list (ask any local adventure rider!).
Sleeping overnight in caves (with added B&B comforts of course) in the heart of the Karoo, breathtaking views, photos you’ll never forget, braais (bbqs); and of course some well-earned beers around the fire – this will be a trip of a lifetime!
We look forward to welcoming you on our next tour and encourage you to make the most of the experience.
