South Africa is a great year-round outdoors destination that rewards the cyclist with varied and exceptionally beautiful landscapes. It also offers the opportunity to experience the diverse culture of this ‘rainbow nation’ and the chance to view the majesty of Africa’s wildlife. The cycling terrain varies from rugged coastlines with colonies of penguins, through subtropical forests, semi-desert and arid scrub plains to the soaring Drakensburg Mountains. The excellent food and locally-produced wine is another highlight and is a great reward to look forward to after a day exploring on two wheels.

The untamed beauty of nature is an important element of any cycling holiday to South Africa. A host of national parks and game reserves help protect almost 300 animal species including the Big Five: elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard. Kruger National Park is one of the largest and best known, where you may like to leave your bike aside for a game walk or drive.

Cycle safaris through game reserves are an appealing and ‘green’ alternative as you cycle through the animals’ habitat (with an armed guide alongside for reassurance).

A favourite cycle route and great introduction to South Africa features rides around the Cape Town region, the wine lands and along the ‘Garden Route’. An abundance of marine life that includes penguins, cape fur seals, dolphins, sharks and southern right whales can be spotted off this unique coastline where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. Every year Cape Town hosts the world’s largest timed cycle race, a challenging but stunning route that follows the circumference of the Cape Peninsula and regularly attracts over 35000 participants.
