Eco-Active in Africa
There is no better or more intense way to experience a country than to bike, hike or kayak through its varied landscapes. And with our choice of route options, you get to decide whether you want to explore at a leisurely pace, or exert yourself some more. Whether you want to try a longer route during the day’s activities, or head back early for a swim or a spa treatment, the choice is yours.
Over the last years we've crafted and perfected a number of Signature Journeys in the Western Cape, incorporating the best in hospitality while traversing the back roads through some of the most spectacular landscapes the region has to offer. If you enjoy a cycle with a group of fellow-minded explorers, nature lovers and incorrigible conversationists, then join us for the 2012 season. And if you miss the start gun for this year, don't dispair ("moedverloor" is Afrikaans for "lost hope")...there is always 2013, 14 and so on...
Don't rest on your laurels though, contact us now to enquire and book for this season. A more perfect cycle-tour-experience in Africa, is hard to imagine.
