Course of your South Africa tour

Day 1 Departure to Cape Town

Day 2 Welcome to Cape Town

Our German-speaking tour guide welcomes us warmly at the airport. After a short drive to the Rosedene guest house, my adventure in South Africa begins. First stop: the Castle of Good Hope. Our guide explains everything about the creation of this fortress. We walk to the old town hall, stroll through Greenmarket Square and stroll through the Malaysian quarter. After so many impressions, I enjoy the peace and quiet in the Company’s Garden. With a delicious fish and a glass of wine, I have the opportunity to get to know my fellow travelers better on the South Africa tour. The first day of my South Africa tour was full of unforgettable experiences.

Day 3 Table Mountain and Township Tour

Best weather, so it goes with the cable car up to Table Mountain. Yesterday I was still marveling at it from afar, today I am walking along the plateau and enjoying the unique panoramic view over the city and the Cape Peninsula. From the lower mountain station we saddle up the bikes for the first 10 km of our South Africa round trip with the e-bike. Now be careful: our guide explains how the e-bikes work. I stow my camera and water bottle in the luggage bag. First of all, I choose level 1. My personal performance is supported 1: 1 by the motor. So I can comfortably enjoy the drive through the national park towards the city center. Then an encounter that you don't have every day: We stay for lunch in Langa Township and talk to residents who have lived through apartheid and tell us their personal stories.

Day 4 Cape of Good Hope

Even if I am not a botanist, I am impressed by the enormous variety that we get to see during the one-hour tour of the world-famous Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden.

On the way to the Cape of Good Hope National Park, we drive 37 km through untouched landscape to the sheltered Atlantic coast, where we stop and have a picnic. Only a few meters away: a group of colored ibex. In a good mood we cycle to the Cape of Good Hope, the most south-westerly point of the country. With double motor assistance, I jet out of the park to the picturesque beach at Scarborough. The perfect place for some snacks. Wow: I've already driven over 50 km and have never had to charge the battery.

Day 5: bike tour along False Bay

When we arrive in the coastal town of Kleinmond, we get back on our e-bikes. A particularly wonderful stretch of our South Africa tour leads along False Bay to Gordons Bay. The wheels are well sprung and thanks to the upright posture I can always see the Cape Peninsula opposite. We see seals, right whales and penguins. And that up close! The accompanying bus continues to the next accommodation in Stellenbosch, the Hotel L´Avenir. Here I end the day with a wine tasting with a fantastic view of the countryside. Today I cycled 47 km. Sounds like a lot - but thanks to the help of the engine, it was by no means exhausting - after all, I'm on vacation.

Day 6: bike tour in the wine region around Stellenbosch

Today we start right at our accommodation and drive past seemingly endless vineyards in South Africa towards Stellenbosch. In view of the beautiful landscape and the strong sun, I realize why South African wine is so delicious. When I arrived in Stellenbosch, I was amazed that there are still so many Victorian houses in South Africa. We explore the cozy village by bike and on foot, before continuing to the Jonkershoek nature reserve, where a delicious picnic is already waiting for us. What an idyll! In Swellendam, at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains, we reach our destination for today: the gorgeous Gaikou Lodge. After 29 km on the e-bike, I enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the unique view of mountains, rivers and forests of southern Africa with a particularly good feeling.

Day 7: bike tour in the Breede valley

We drive on a quiet country road to the Suurbraak (sour fallow land) founded by missionaries. At the end of the 18th century, the first people forced into slavery were able to find a free home here. In the Tradouw Gorge, I am particularly impressed by the variety of plants. With our support vehicle we then cross the semi-desert known as the Little Karoo. This delightful landscape is a habitat for rare plants and animals. In the afternoon we will reach Oudtshoorn, a trading center and most important place for ostrich farming. I can really relax in the quiet Mooiplaas Guest House!

Day 8 Kango caves and ostrich farm

You cycle from the guest house on a quiet slope into the Schoemanspoort gorge to the impressive Kango stalactite caves. Suddenly my battery is empty. Something went wrong while loading. Our guide conjures a replacement battery out of his bike bag and we can go on. Our group continues to cycle comfortably to an ostrich farm, where we learn more about the breeding of these impressive birds. We strengthen ourselves with a traditional lunch. The rest of the day I relax by the pool in the Mooiplaas Guest House - just put your feet up and enjoy the peace and quiet! In the evening I make a detour into town and meet the other travelers for dinner. We proudly state that we drove 48 km today - the longest distance so far!

Day 9 Hike on the Robberg Peninsula

On the drive to our accommodation today, the Cornerway House in Plettenberg Bay, we make a short sightseeing stop in the lagoon town of Knysna. Today we take an e-bike break. Nevertheless, there is movement: a varied hike that requires surefootedness leads over half of the Robberg Peninsula. I rediscover a colony of cape-eared seals, brooding gulls and oystercatchers - fascinating animals. Has a bottlenose dolphin just appeared? I'm not sure. The afternoon is at our disposal. Who wants to go swimming in the sea. I relax in the wonderful green garden of our accommodation today.

Day 10: bike tour in the national park

You go through picturesque fynbos landscapes to the quiet holiday village Nature’s Valley, which is located in the middle of the jungle. We stretch our legs a little while walking on the lonely sandy beach. A three-kilometer driveway leads back up. Luckily we have e-bikes. I only notice that I have been driving uphill when I look down from above into the next Bloukrans jungle valley. I see baboons and native species of parrots. The Tsitsikamma Village Inn, which is my home for the next night, is located in a spacious garden. At the end of the day, my speedometer shows something incredible: I drove a whopping 52 km today without any problems.

Day 11 Boat trip in the Addo Elephant National Park

After a small transfer, the e-bike takes you about 30 km on a flat, quiet side road past fertile farms, king proteas and white lilies. The views to the left of the up to 900 meters towering Tsitsikamma Mountains are impressive. After a leisurely picnic, head towards Addo Elephant National Park, where you can marvel at seven different vegetation zones. Today we stay in the Dungbeetle River Lodge, not far from the Matyholweni Gate of the national park.

Day 12 Safari in the Addo Elephant National Park

Our driver chauffeurs us to the Addo Elephant National Park. Go on safari in an open Land Rover. The park is known for its many elephants and antelopes, and we can also see buffalo, lions, zebras and turtles. In the evening we are warmly welcomed at the Dungbeetle River Lodge, where we enjoy an extremely tasty farewell dinner. Yes, our time together in South Africa is almost over.

Day 13 Goodbye, South Africa!

In Port Elizabeth I still have some time until my departure so I can review the trip. No matter whether on foot or by bike - we have mastered all the beautiful routes in South Africa ourselves and thus simply saw more of this country! Amazing, this South Africa tour.

14th day arrival at home

Character of the cycling stages:

Most of the bike routes in South Africa are on tarred roads. On the popular panoramic roads on the coast, a coach overtakes us, but the route has a wide shoulder that is well suited for cycling. In the wine region we are mostly on bike paths. The few inclines can always be mastered easily with the e-bike. The planned hike on day 9 requires surefootedness and a head for heights.
