MotoQuest has been visiting South Africa with groups of eager and adventurous motorcyclists since 2006.
Beautifully paved highways skirt along oceanside cliffs, offering endless views of the turquoise waters of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.
Stand at the southernmost point on the continent at the Cape of Good Hope, where these two bodies of waters meet.
But for all the beauty found along the coast, the real treasures lie within.
Our South Africa Backroads Adventure was designed to show visitors the many faces of South Africa, and so we venture into the country’s interior where rugged backroads and winding trails traverse the uninhabited landscape.
Looking for unique experiences? How about taking a human powered ferry across the Breede River at Malgas? Workers wear harnesses to tow the cargo-carrying pontoon platform across the water. Where else might this be part of a day’s ride?
This is the ultimate MotoQuest dual sport adventure, and the BMW GS is the perfect bike to tackle the nearly 1,000 miles of unpaved paths on our itinerary.
Along the way you will experience one of the most biodiverse countries in the world in spectacular fashion as we stop at the Addo Elephant National Park.
Gaze in wonder at the thousands of different plant species in the Baviaanskloof Mega Reserve.
All the while you’ll be immersed in this beautiful place, experiencing it in the best possible way: on a motorcycle.
