Dunes & Atlantic

Starting from Windhoek, you will cycle southwest on dirt and sand roads, across the central Namibia plateau and then down into the Namib desert.

16 Days Moderate-Advanced 1725 KmAVG 123 Km

The highlight of this section is bound to be the dawn visit to the world’s highest sand dunes at Sossusvlei, near Sesriem, and the wildlife buffet at the hotel next to our campsite. Departing the dunes, our route turns south and traverses harshly beautiful and thinly populated lands, en route to the Fish River Canyon, another of Namibia’s natural wonders. From there it’s a long day’s pedal to the scenic Senqu (Orange) River and the final border crossing into South Africa. The excitement builds everyday, as full tour and sectional riders share in the emotional conclusion of this incredible journey.

Late April in Namibia is equivalent to late October in the Northern Hemisphere. Riders can expect perfect sunny days in the low to mid 20ºs C, and cool cloudless nights ranging from 7 to 12ºC.

Few countries can match South Africa’s natural beauty and wealth. Spinning along the quiet highways of Northern Cape Province takes you across the heather strewn hillsides of Namaqualand and past picturesque wine valleys towards the Atlantic Ocean. From Garies to Elandsbay riders tackle the last short stretch of off road corrugation and sand, and revel in the ruggedness of the coast and its cool, foggy conditions. Soon we reach our final destination in the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town where joy and celebration will unfold in the shadow of iconic Table Mountain.
