Dunes & Rainbows

Starting from Windhoek, you will cycle southwest on dirt and sand roads, across the central Namibia plateau and then down into the Namib desert. The highlight of this section is bound to be the dawn visit to the world’s highest sand dunes at Sossusvlei, near Sesriem.

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. After spinning along on the main road from the border of Namibia for a couple of days, the 2015 Tour will take a new route into South Africa’s rugged wilderness and quiet roads – the beautiful and arid Namaqualand – pure joy for off-roaders and some hardships for roadies. From Namaqualand riders will enter Western Cape and head westward towards the Atlantic Ocean and their final destination the city of Cape Town. Joy and celebration awaits them!
