Tri Nations Tour

This tour will get you eye level with different cultures and peoples. Starting in the City of Gold, we move Northeast to Mpumalanga, a biker’s Paradise; Flowing curves, beautiful landscapes and friendly people. We go on Safari and hope to find the Big 5. Then it goes to the Kingdom of Swaziland. A grandiose place with very friendly locals. We continue to the tribe of the Zulus. In St. Lucia we will take a boat trip to discover crocodiles and hippos. From St. Lucia via Underberg to the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. The spectacular Sani Pass awaits us and what a challenge…

On the way to the north we cross the Golden Gate National Park before we head back to Johannesburg again.

Day 03

Dullstroom- Hazyview  279 km

We will go on a Safari in the hope to get a glimpse of the Big 5. The rest of the day is at your liberty. (B+D)

Day 05

Hazyview- Swaziland  371 km

A big riding day awaits us. The first leg takes us from Hazyview to Sabie up the famous 22. The name comes from a section of this route: 22 km with 70 turns. There are many legends surrounding this route. Then we continue to the tranquil Kaapsehoop, a small community high in the mountains. It is sparsely populated by hippies, conservationists, artists and those who think they are. There are wild horses in the middle of the city and on the streets. A relaxed atmosphere. After a coffee break, we now attack the border crossing. Welcome to Swaziland. (B+D)

Day 06

Swaziland – St. Lucia  345 km

We continue Southeast, leaving Swaziland to roll into St. Lucia in the afternoon. This place is recognised by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Tonight we will take part in a sunset cruise and see crocodiles and hippos. Attention: The traffic signs warning of hippos are not just a tourist attraction. (B+D)

Day 07

Day 09

Underberg- Clarens 303 km

Here and today is the most exciting, hardest and most unpredictable part of our tour. If the weather is good, it should not be too much of a problem, however, if the weather is bad… Let’s leave it at that. You can reward yourself with a beer in Africa’s highest pub, should we have made the ascent. The final destination of this stage today is Clarens. (B+D)

Day 10
