Cycling the Vineyards and Wineries

No matter how much reading you do, you can never be totally prepared for any cycle tour. There are always surprises in store and of course the people you meet, the guides and fellow cyclists are a key factor in the ultimate overall experience. The scenery on this tour was dramatic and at times absolutely fabulous, especially in the 2nd half when we returned to Cape Town along the coast. There were times when the weather was a little difficult and on one stretch of coastline with mountainous cliffs on one side and a sheer drop to the sea on the other, we were frequently 'blown about' or stopped in our tracks by the wind in our faces. It all added to the excitement and sheer enjoyment of the cycling, it certainly wasn't boring! The guides were excellent, they didn't allow us to cycle when it was too dangerous but at the same time we were able to tackle some demanding climbs and descents and the cycling was generally just within the capabilities of the group.

Brilliant Experience

The Western Cape area of South Africa was so different to my first experience in the Kruger area. Outstanding scenery, well organised, fairly easy cycling, homely accommodation. The only negative would be the food and wine was INCREDIBLE so there is no chance of weight loss on this trip!

A wonderfull way of experiencing the Western Cape of South Africa. Superb cycle rides, great food , marveloous cheap wine and some lovely people. Truly a memorable holiday and just one long party.

SOUTH AFRICA: CYCLING THE CAPE & WINELANDS

This was an excellent well planned tour. It gave me exactly what I wanted in the middle of an English winter; warmth, light and greenery. The cycling is quite challenging. I did 250 miles in 8 days and climbed c 4000m (but with an equivalent of exhilarating downs!)

SOUTH AFRICA: CYCLING THE CAPE & WINELANDS

Overall a very enjoyable trip, especially as it was my first every cycling holiday.  Great scenery, great wines, and tour leaders that really made it all work pretty much seamlessly. BUT...overly expensive bike hire (for what was provided), and very expensive (and disappointing) single supplement accommodation.

SOUTH AFRICA: CYCLING THE CAPE & WINELANDS

The vital aspect of any Exodus trip is the mix of the group. This was no different; 13/14 folks eager to get on, and one awkward $*?ck£r ... there is always one! (his name available on request)Plus a great guide and driver.

Exodus Response

As it happens we have a brand new Namibian cycling trip this year - http://www.exodus.co.uk/holidays/mzn/overview - It takes in various places in the South and North of the country and includes a couple days on safari in Etosha as well! Oh and it has a good amount of camping too! :)
