This is Adventure Motorcycle and 4x4 heaven. Not only is the road an awesome ride, but the views, the nature and wildlife, the passes and the end point if you stay over are incredible. It is not a particularly long ride distance wise, but takes the best part of 1.5 to 2 hours from the turn off if you dont stop for pictures or to pass others. However to get to the turn off also involves a pass from the nearest town, so dedicate the best part of a day to get there and back or just stay over. Camp or book a self catering house.

Seweweekespoort Pass

December 11, 2012 - 5 ster route classificatie Motorritten5.0
Another awesome mountain pass - not so high up and over the mountain, rather following a river and cutting through the mountain for about 20 odd km. Beautiful mountain scenery. All gravel, recommended for Adventure Bikes only. Depending upon the time of the year there can be quite a few (about 10 odd) up to two or three feet deep river crossings.

Arguably one of the top passes in Southern Africa (of which there are many many awesome passes), for length, scenery, views, beauty, changing weather, all gravel, etc. Its a must see on an Adventure Motorcycle.

If you love Adventure bike riding and nature this is an amazing all gravel route through the Tankwa Karoo. Miles of open road, a spectacular mountain pass, at the right time of the year (spring in September) it is wall to wall desert flowers too. Ending up in Sutherland, the place chosen for some of the clearest skies in the world for astronomy.

Nice road close to Cape Town to get out into the rural citrus farms and mountains. Two spectacular passes. the road is mostly Tar but a section of about 40km of Gravel towards Citrusdal. An Adventure bike is recommended for this route.

Swartberg Pass : ( Swllendam - Akkerboom - Montagu - Rietpol - Malgas )

The road from Outsdhoorn to Prince Albert via the Swartberg Pass is a fantastic trip back in time. Shortly out of Outsdhoorn you can divert to the pass via gravel roads. The pass was built in the 1850s by a convict gang under the supervision of a road building engineer named Thomas Bain. It is a single track road, with dry stack rock revetement walls built so that farmers could get there goods to market by ox wagons. Bain didn feature too many switchbacks (although there are unavoidably a few) so it is a long climb along the flanks of some majestic mountains winding in an out of the draining gullies along the flanks. The road is very narrow and you can encounter the odd bit of traffic so you must be constantly aware of speed. There are a number of swales built in to stop rainwater from draining directly down the road and eroding the surface. They present like large speed bumps so caution is required. The road leads over the pass through a fantastic gorge with many spots to pull out and admire the view. We had an encounter with a Cape Cobra that my wife will never forget....the lead bike drove around but very near what looked like a stick on the road and by the time we got level with it we watched it coil up and turn back and flare the distinct hood. As we passed, the snake struck at us going by on the bike. Fortunately, we zoomed buy untouched, partly because my wifes legs were wrapped around my head as she reacted to the cobra strike! No harm done and some nervous laughter later on. The views were amazing and after a couple of hours you arrive in Prince Albert where some trendy coffee shops will serve you some refreshments. We did the return route on the same day and enjoyed it as much going back to Outsdhoorn as on the way over to Prince Albert.

R63 : Victoria West - Graaff-Reinet ( Murraysberg Belter )

Western Cape ... > Zuid-Afrika > Afrika
Augustus 18, 2010 - 4 ster route classificatie Motorritten4.0
The best way to tackle this route is to start at Victoria West. You can do it from Graaff-Reinet up, but somehow its not quite the same. Start at the cafe on the edge of town in Vic West (good rugby supporters venue!), ride into town and turn right after the Excel garage onto the Murraysberg road.
As you hit the outskirts of town you can pretty much twist the throttle and belt it from there. Be careful as you approach and cross the N1 highway, but after that you e back in biker Nirvana. The approach to Murraysberg is as fast as you want it.
Between Murraysberg and Graaff-Reinet your speed will be a little less, but the twisties will make up for it. The road condition is tarmac all the way, mostly with shoulder run-offs, and is currently and a good condition.
Police presence is minimal, but be vigilant 10km either side of Murraysberg and from about 20km before Graaff-Reinet.
