Hit The Dirt Road


Our gravel tours have taken off in a big way! In South Africa, we’re spoilt for choice with an extensive gravel network running all over the country. So get your gravel game on and join us on one of our single or multi-day gravel tours around the Cape Winelands, Klein Karoo and Overberg regions of the Western Cape. We guarantee you’ll never look back from the open groad!
