There are many reasons why you should put South Africa at the top of your travel destinations list. This is one of those countries where you will be revitalized and enlightened, as well as entertained and excited. The people are amazing and the service is excellent in South Africa. You will be visiting a country with booming economy and sophisticated infrastructure, a country whose main cities look very much alike other metropolises all over the world.
However, if you want to stay away from the buzzing of big cities, which you are already sick and tired of, and want to explore South Africa’s natural beauty, you can choose to go on guided motorbike tours of this country.
Touring South Africa will be a memorable experience for a number of reasons. First of all, a guided motorbike tour is not a very traditional way of visiting a country. This different approach makes to trip all the more special to begin with. Second of all, you will be seeing a lot of South Africa in just a week (or for as long as the tour lasts), as you will be covering over three hundred kilometers on each day of your guided motorbike tour. If you are a motorcycle touring connoisseur, you probably already know that there are many glorious mountainous areas in South Africa. These areas will not only delight your senses, but will also test your riding skills. You will probably enjoy traversing several major mountain passes, which are between twelve and fifty-six kilometers long. Moreover, touring South Africa is not just about riding your motorbike across the country.
Guided motorbike tours typically include all sorts of activities, such as visiting places of interest (the Apartheid Museum, the Kruger National Park, the famous “Golden Mountain”, the Blyde River Canyon, the Gold Reef City theme park or the Cullinan Diamond Mine are just some examples), and engaging in exhilarating activities, such as an elephant-back safari or game viewing.
Furthermore, guided motorbike tours are available with inclusive packages. Guided motorbike tours should include the motorcycle, petrol, motorcycle insurance, medical and life insurance, communication systems, a spare motorcycle, a back-up vehicle, dinner, bed and breakfast, light refreshments on tour, a tour booklet, the assistance of one of more tour guides, as well as cultural evenings and visits to certain places of interest.
In other words, all you have to worry about is your crash helmet, gloves and protective gear, and additional expenses such as beverages or gifts and souvenirs. If you make a good choice of guided motorbike tour, not only will you be riding across South Africa and seeing some of the most exciting places in this country, but you also be benefiting from excellent service at five-star hotels, lodges and inns, as well as in exquisite restaurants, where you can have a taste of the best South African food and wines.
Touring South Africa can be a memorable experience, provided you make some investigations prior to embarking on any of the guided motorbike tours available. Guided motorbike tours of South Africa vary from one organizer to the next, in terms of tour maps, accommodation, facilities and activities. If you are not exactly excited about the already-existing guided tour offers, you should know that some organizers are open to suggestions and ready to take you on a customized guided tour that will include your specific demands.
