5-11 Days | Private Cycle Safari
* This Journey Is Rated 5 Stars *
We transport you on a one-of-a-kind journey taking in the highlights of South Africa, departing from and returning to Cape Town in a full circle.
Experience a cycle through an ancient fossilized landscape where bushman paintings still dot the rock faces, frozen in place by a dry climate as much as by the arid inaccessibility of a land hostile to those not accustomed to its demands. We meet the people behind a rare white lion breeding program, in Southern Africa's largest private reserve, the culmination of a determined and visionary spirit, setting the pace among its peers.
Again and again, we will make the acquaintance of this rare breed of people, driven by their convictions to preserve a heritage of infinite value while contributing a leading entrepreneurial spirit.
We follow the mantis’ trail to the coastal wetlands of the Garden Route, to pristine and environmentally unique estuaries, populated by rare bird species and countless spawning fish, kayaking the serpentine twists and turns of the dark Touws river to its final resting place.
We cycle through forested highlands dotted with majestic pines and down some of the most breathtaking mountain passes part of the Cape's Fold mountains in the Outeniqua, before entering the plains of the Addo bush, and the home of Shamwari, arguably South Africa’s most prestigious private game reserve.
Here awaits stunning vistas of the African veldt, dotted with wildlife, impressively large and fiercely committed to the age-old game of the hunted and the hunter. Our professional expert guides takes you closer to the landscape and its inhabitants, physically, but also explaining the tremendous dynamics that underpins the delicate balance, ensuring nature's survival.
The last leg of the journey brings us to a breathtaking vantage point. A seven thousand acre private game and marine reserve, with its majestic lodge overlooking the vast blue expanse of the Indian Ocean. Tracking the migratory path of the Southern Right Whale, as it rounds the tip of Africa on its journey South, promises to be one of the highlights of the journey.
On this magical journey, we cycle, walk and kayak, providing the perfect balance to enjoy the comforts offered by our exquisite lodgings at the end of every day. And we promise the chef’s offerings won’t go unnoticed either. Every day and every experience along this exquisitely crafted journey promises you the unexpected and when it’s over, you will have gathered a treasure chest of memories, to last a lifetime.
