The participants of the Rainbow Ride Tour came back delighted after visiting a wonderful country, open to the world and full of smiling people. They rode along roads that were in perfect condition and enjoyed the delicious food and extraordinary wines. We strongly belive that Africa is continent is well worth discovering. All for a totally reasonable price given the program! Each part of the trip is rich and balance for a complete change of scenery. The icing on the cake is that there is just a one-hour time difference between Paris and Cape Town!

Tour Itinerary

Day 1 Le Cap Welcome to Cape Town. Meeting at the hotel on the Waterfront, the liveliest part of the city. You will be greeted by your guide.
Day 2 Stellenbosh (180 km/112 miles) Bikes pick up, time to kick the road. Then off to the Wine Route via Bain’s Kloof Pass. If you love winding roads, you will love this leg of the trip as it makes its way through the mountains and vineyards.
Day 3 Montagu (200 km/124 miles) Montagu is the main city on Route 62. We will have lunch in the village of Franschhoek (French Corner in Afrikaans), in the heart of the wine region. We will then take the R43 highway through a pass with a spectacular panorama.
Day 4 Oudtshoorn (235 km/146 miles) We will cross Klein Karoo (Little Karoo), once again on Route 62! It is considered a historical road, like Route 66 in the United States, and it crosses some amazing scenery. In the evening, we will have dinner at a Game Lodge in an extraordinary setting! The program includes a 4x4 safari among the elephants, hippopotamuses, giraffes, etc. Photographers, take out your cameras!
Day 5 Day in Oudtshoorn (Klein Karoo) (220 km/136 miles) Today is a day of relaxation with a visit to an ostrich farm and the possibility to take part in a birdback rodeo! The show is sure to give you a laugh. We will then have lunch in Prince Albert, where we will discover the famous Cango Caves. Time will seem to be standing still at a crocodile farm that is mainly famous for its cheetahs!
Day 6 Graaff-Reinet (325 km/202 miles) We head to Graaff-Reinet across a huge reserve surrounded by arid landscapes and Kammanassieberge mountains. The “Gem of the Karoo”, this little town is a major site in the history of Eastern Cape Province, briefly an independent republic at the end of the 18th century.
Day 7 Port Elizabeth (250 km/155 miles) We will cross the Valley of Desolation with its giant cacti before taking the road to Addo Elephant Park for a safari in the largest elephant park in South Africa. After lunch at the park, we will saddle up for Port Elizabeth.
Day 8 Plettenberg Bay (240 km/149 miles) The Garden Route runs along the Indian Ocean and the Tsitsikamma Mountains. The ride runs deep into Nature Valley, an oasis of tranquility and greenery. We then come to Plettenberg Bay, famous for its beach, restaurants and warm-water lagoon that make it the St. Tropez of South Africa.
Day 9 Mossel Bay (230 km/143 miles) National highway 2 affords a view over the Indian Ocean and its white sand beaches. A real picture postcard illustrating the endearing sprit of the Garden Route. We will then stop at the charming port of Mossel Bay.
Day 10 Hermanus (310 km/193 miles) Off the N2 highway, we come to the Atlantic Ocean and Cape Agulhas, the southernmost point of the African continent. Then comes Hermanus, whose bay is a refuge for humpback whales during their mating season.
Day 11 Cape of Good Hope – Cape Town (180 km/112 miles) We will discover the Cape Peninsula along the coastal road and will visit the Cape of Good Hope. We usually run into the ancestral residents of the area: turtles, zebras, antelopes and ostriches have free range.

Day 13 Return Bye bye! See you soon on another West Forever guided motorcycle tour!
