Why Bike and Saddle ?
An eco-active ® holiday experience where you set the pace ...
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.

Do you appreciate the finer things in life, yet value those experiences that money can’t buy? Do you regard a traveling holiday as an extension of your active lifestyle - a journey of body, mind and soul - rather than just another ‘tour’? Do you wish to travel responsibly? Then join us …

With its unsurpassed natural beauty and vibrant cultures, South Africa draws more visitors than any other country in sub-Saharan Africa. From the arid Karoo with its spectacular night sky, to the Kruger National Park where the bush teems with wildlife; from the fertile valleys around Cape Town covered in fynbos (heather) and vineyards, to the dramatic Namaqualand desert transformed by spring flowers, this is a country rich in diversity.
Because our journeys (ranging from 1 to 14 days) wind along less-traveled routes, you will see vineyards, mountain passes, flowering deserts, nature reserves, country lanes, the African night sky and the hues of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans – up close and personal.
... with luxurious accommodation and pampering all the way ...
On your journey, relax in the best accommodation that money can buy or in the case of our luxury family-stays, the best hospitality the region has to offer, and enjoy a fusion of local and international cuisine, complemented by world-renowned South African wines. Whether you stay in a world-class hotel and spa with panoramic ocean views, or in a luxury tented camp deep in the African bush, your lodgings will leave a lasting impression of comfort, quality and five-star service.
