Houwhoek to Knysna

This is our classic Cape Trek Tour covering 659km through some of the best and most divers scenery South Africa has to offer. Each day starting with a sumptuous country breakfast and ending with a three course meal, will insure our bodies are sustained during the journey.

From Houwhoek we make our descent from the Hottentots Holland Platue and venture deep into the Overberg, following paths of the Old Wagon Trail dating back to the mid 1700’s.

Climbing mountain passes and winding through beautiful country roads of the Hinterland, we will see the Cape from a very unique view point. 

The Kloof forest lie like shadows between the jagged peaks of the Riviersonderend & Langeberg mountain range. Rolling hills covered by a patchwork of deep green and bright yellow cover what was once fertile grasslands of the famous Khoekhoen cattle herders. Each day we’ll lunch in either a country restaurant or picnic at a great scenic spot along our trail. 

With long days in the saddle, we will be grateful for the hospitality found in quaint country towns with their fine Country Inns and Guest Houses.

As we approach the Outeniqua mountain range the wild flora begins to change to the thick Afromontane forests of the Garden Route.Descending through the rich green forests we’ll catch our first glimpse of the warm Indian Ocean and smell the fresh sea air.  

After six days of riding with six days of incredible memories we will enter Knysna, our final stop. Spending our last night together on this tour, we will share our stories and experiences over a fine dinner with the gorgeous Knysna Lagoon beneath us.
