Ride South Africa’s best roads with ARR in March 2016 when Australian Road Rider joins South African Motorcycle Adventures for an unforgettable experience.
I’ve already signed up to do SAMA’s Best SA Roadtrip Ever tour and I’d love you to join the fun of this sensational 17-day ride from March 11 to 28, 2016.
To add to the temptation, SAMA is throwing in a free overnight elephant experience exclusively to you, our loyal readers, and I’ll ensure you get some professional-quality photos to add to the memories you catch on your own camera. You might even appear in a video I’ll produce!
The Best Roadtrip tour takes in the winding coast roads of South Africa as well as scenic routes away from the water, and includes a safari in famous Kruger National Park.
It’s a 4000km journey beginning in Pretoria and looping to beautiful Cape Town. I can vouch for the quality and excitement of the roads down Cape Town way!
En-route we visit the world famous Kruger National Park, we ride the magical Kingdom of Swaziland, and we get up close and personal with hippos and crocodiles in the World Heritage site of St Lucia. You’ll have the chance to try the world’s highest gorge swing at Oribi Gorge and the world’s highest bungee jump.
There’s history, stunning countryside, sensational roads and exotic wildlife all the way along the route.
The accommodation is in luxurious 3-4 star hotels and lodges and the food promises to be excellent.
All riding will be on good tarmac roads but we’ll be able to opt in for some exciting offroad routes on rest days.
And then the bonus elephant package for ARR readers adds even more! We’ll visit an elephant sanctuary where you can interact with these magnificent animals, literally going trunk-in-hand with them and taking a ride.
You’ll learn a lot about them, and spend a night in the Elephant Guesthouse near their stables. You’ll visit a monkey sanctuary, go for a cable-car ride over Hartebeestpoort Dam, and we’ll take care of all the transfers.
SAMA is a family-run business that’s established its reputation over 12 years of leading groups around their homeland, and they’ll provide immaculately prepared BMW F700GS, F800GS and R1200GS LC bikes for you to chose from.
Depending upon what you want to ride and the exchange rate when you book, this trip of a lifetime will cost about $8000-$9000 plus airfares and other extras. See the SAMA website for the full details, costs, inclusions and so on.
As I post this, the March 2016 tour hasn’t been added to SAMA’s online calendar, so contact them directly to express your interest. When you do, let them know you’re with ARR to ensure you get the exclusive Elephant Package.
Come and join me!
