Amakaya Motorbike Tours

Written by AmakayaBP

Bike-Garden-RouteImagine cruising down a coastal road…with the sea on one side and the forests on the other, winding your way along a twisting road – a bikers dream, and something for the non-biker to experience. The lone traveller using the ever popular Baz Bus or one of the coach lines is always dependent on a run of the mill ‘shuttle bus’ service to the various activities in the Plett area.  Now there is an ‘adventure’ within your travels to the various activities – a motor bike shuttle as a pillion rider. No licence needed, just hop on the back of a BMW R1200R Adventure motor bike to experience why dogs stick their heads out of car windows!

Or choose one of the motor-bike tours we offer from 2 hours to a whole day excursion. For the biker with his/her own bike, guided tours to suite you desire are also available.  Bike rentals and a planned or guided route can be arranged for the seasoned biker visiting our country. Hire a bike and experience South Africa and the Garden Route from behind the handle bars – the best way to do it!  We use the bikes of Explore SA GS Rental who use BMW motor cycles. Their offerings can be viewed on their website:

Amakaya Backpackers offers a 10% discount to bikers at any time of the year (excluding any current promotions at the time).
