1, 2, 7, 12 and 20 day motorcycle tours of South Africa based on Cape Town using only late model, excellently maintained BMW motorcycles. These tours can be with or without guide.

We also rent out motorcycles at below average rates which include unlimited miles.
South African Motorcycle Tours provides a unique opportunity to tour some of the most beautiful country in South Africa on a motorcycle. Our bike tours are designed to give you maximum exposure to the diverse cultures and people that abound in this beautiful region of the Cape. Sitting astride one of our late models BMW bikes, you are in touch with the Real South Africa and everything around you. South African Motorcycle Tours has gone to great lengths and traveled thousands of kilometers to put together the Ultimate African Adventure. We invite you to experience Africa as a modern day adventurer from the saddle of a motorcycle with us.
South African Motorcycle Tours operate two week tours based from Cape Town. We offer three categories of tour:
- Accompanied by a minibus.
- Accompanied by a guide on a motorcycle.
- Un-accompanied tour.
- Daily motorcycle hire.
Our watchword is quality and only late model 750cc, 1100cc or 1150cc BMW motorcycles are used, hotels (all with swimming pools) are either two or three star. Multilingual guides are available and visits to game reserves, ostrich farms, wineries with wine tasting and world famous caves are incorporated. We do not rush you; rest days for your own exploring are included.
One, two or seven day tours from Cape Town can be arranged with or without a guide on a bike. While we recommend particularly scenic and interesting destinations for these tours, you are entirely at liberty to request your own routes. These shorter trips are particularly attractive to people on holiday in Cape Town who do not wish to spend their entire time on a motorcycle.
In designing our tours the philosophy has been to create a tour which will equally appeal to motorcyclists who want to explore, have contact with and travel through a new country and those whose need is to concentrate on driving a motorcycle in a different environment. We would like to think that your interests are equally the countryside and civilization around you and the challenge of driving. With this in mind our tours are routed over numerous challenging mountain passes and have ample opportunity for contact with South Africans of all races. Our average aged motorcyclist is 42, is a professional and 60% bring a partner.
If your interests are primary off road riding, camping, flat out travel for 8 hours a day, all male company and partying to 2 am every morning, you will find other operators who better cater for your tastes. If, on the other hand you want challenging riding over huge distances, to finish 11 days in the saddle without feeling sore, decent hotels each night, lively mixed company and return with a better knowledge of South Africa, then our tours are for you.
