Experience the strikingly scenic—and dazzlingly diverse—landscapes of South Africa on a comprehensive journey stretching from cosmopolitan Cape Town to the tranquil, coastal hamlets of the celebrated Garden Route.

We’ll pedal our way among the fertile, verdant vineyards of The Winelands … the stark, soaring peaks of the Swartberg Mountains … and the lush forests of Tsitsikamma National Park. We’ll also spend time with the friendly people who call South Africa home, meeting the gracious residents of a local township, enjoying a behind-the-scenes tour of a working ostrich farm, and sharing a memorable dinner with a Cape Town family.
