Well, the title of this blog is possibly an example of the phrase ‘rhetorical question’…
South Africa is possibly one of the most diverse regions on the planet. In-fact the country hosts the smallest of the planets 6 recognized ‘Floral Kingdoms’ which is set over the expanse of the Western Cape province. This underlines the scenic diversity of the geography of the country which in turn, underlines the rhetorical nature of the question: “when is best to visit SA and particularly on a motorcycle?”…
Our signature tours start and end here in Cape Town, our home city. This is the so called ‘Capensis kingdom’, the smallest and possibly most diverse of all. For much of the region and particularly around the Greater Cape Town area has winter rainfall. The weather is never particularly cold, and temperatures hardly ever drop below 5 Celsius overnight with day temps being balmy and pleasant. Bye and large the area is conducive to riding all year around.
Our tour which covers the North East of the country, the ‘Southern Spear’ over 12 days, is particularly stunning in the winter months (May to August) as much of the tour will be in the ‘lowveld’ region and on the 'sub-tropical' Kwa-Zulu Natal coast. The tour does visit Lesotho and Swaziland (both autonomous countries within the bounds of South Africa). The daytime is usually ridden with blue skies above and pleasant temps. A rest day is spent in St Lucia on the edge of the iSimangaliso Wetlands National Park which is a UNESCO world heritage site hosting hundreds of Hippos and thousands of Crocodiles as just a part of its incredible biodiversity.
So… when to visit. The simple answer is yet another question: “when will suite you best to fly down for a tour?!” Once this question is answered is when we’d be better able to guide you as to which airport to fly in and which tour to enjoy.
