TOUR SUMMARYMAPITINERARYPRICESBOOK NOWENQUIRE

UpSouth Adventures’ Best of the West tour is the most adventurous tour in terms of gravel road riding and interesting accommodation spots. It includes the most beautiful, less explored backroads and mountain passes of the Karoo and at some stages a bit more challenging than the standard jeep track. The route is designed to explore most of the exciting and breathtaking gravel road passes the Cape has on offer.

We start the trip off by riding through the famous Cape Winelands of the Western Cape and then make our way north, along the backroads of the Cederberg Mountain. We then go east into the semi-desert areas of the Tankwa Karoo, where the real beauty of this trip lies… the single-lane gravel roads, carving through the valleys, mountain passes and open plains.

We travel over the Swartberg and through the Baviaanskloof, where you can look forward to watercrossings, mountains and valleys. We spend some time in the Garden Route and then head back towards Cape Town via the most Southern Tip of Africa. From here we explore the last hidden valleys, before making our way into town, along the famous Gordon’s bay coastal road.

Understanding the local exchange rate

Before travelling to a new destination, it’s essential to consider the exchange rate of the country you’ll be visiting. This allows you to determine how much the currency from your country of residence is worth in the country you are travelling to. This will influence your options for activities, accommodation and transportation. Typically, the rand is a slightly weaker currency than many of its counterparts. This usually enables visitors to enjoy the perk of receiving good value for their expenses here!
