About this tour

Day one of our Cape to Namibia motorcycle adventure takes us through the picturesque Cape Winelands region and via the Bain’s Kloof Pass to Ceres. From Ceres to Calvinia, we travel along the longest unsealed road between two towns in South Africa. We stop at Tankwa Padstal for a few cold ones before the last stretch to Calvinia.

Once we cross the border into Namibia, the landscape changes dramatically – enough to take your breath away! From Helmeringhausen  to Swakopmund via  Solitaire the road surface remains unsealed. Expect plenty of wildlife as we travel alongside the spectacular Namib Desert.
As we average less than 350 km per day, we provide for enough breaks to stop for cold drinks, to absorb the beauty of the scenic landscape and to capture the very moments on camera.

After a rest day in Swakopmund,  we ride via Spitzkoppe(also called the Namibian Matterhorn) to a private game reserve for a late afternoon game drive. We arrive early in Windhoek to have the motorcycles checked by BMW. We ride on the edge of the Kalahari desert to Stampriet.

This exceptional route comes highly recommended!
