In a word excellent. South Africa has some of the most incredible motorcycle riding available on the planet today. A network of high quality tarmac road stretches far and wide across the country. The road surfaces are by and large maintained very well. The network of roads links the beautiful countryside to many cities, villages and hamlets along the way. We will be riding exclusively on these tarmac roads.
Accommodation is of the highest order in South Africa, you will be staying in comfortable lodge or guesthouse accommodation. We pride ourselves on unique nature of each hand-picked spot, each is different from the other and enhances the overall experience… vive la difference…
The overnight accommodations and restaurants offers superior quality cuisine and a great place to unwind and relax after absorbing days on the road. We avoid the humdrum sterile chain type accommodation and restaurants like the plague.
Fuel or petrol as it is commonly called in South Africa is in good supply on the route we will be riding, fuel is for your account and will be approx. US$ 1.00 per litre. Fuel stations do not accept international credit cards and cash will be the method of payment when refuelling.
Although South Africa, being the diverse country it is, has several national languages. English is spoken and understood by the large majority of the population. In addition your tour guides are both proficient in Afrikaans (an indigenous South African language with its roots in Dutch) which is also widely understood and spoken across the various people groups. English is well understood and spoken by all in the tourism industry (hotels, tourist attractions etc.).
South Africa has no specific health issues related to diseases and immunizations are not required. We may be in a low-risk Malaria area (Mpumalanga, Low-veld Region) for a few days and you are free to make use of anti-malaria medication. Most overnight accommodation however falls outside the high-risk Malaria areas and mosquito repellents should be sufficient for personal comfort in the evenings.
