Cycling holidays in South Africa

Regarding ecology, South Africa is one of the most diverse regions on earth with over 20,000 different types of plants and over 1,000 types of vertebrates.

Biodiversity and mild climate

No other country in the world is home to the so-called "Big Five" – the five most dreaded types of big game in a similar density. These are the buffalo, lion, leopard, rhino and elephant. In addtition to the "Big Five" they also have native exotic species such as penguins, ostriches or mountain zebras. Due to the mild maritime climate inhibiting extreme temperatures, the country is stupendously suited to being explored by bike. Local cuisine combines a multitude of different influences and cultures, which can be discovered on your cycling holiday. Considering the coastline has a length of over 2500 kilometres and direct access to two oceans – the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean – it is hardly surprising that fish and seafood play a prominent role.

Through wilderness, forests and canyons – a cycling holiday from Krüger National Park to Capetown  

It is a spectacular start to your cycling holiday with Eurobike through South Africa’s breathtaking animal world – with an overnight stay in the world-famous Krüger National Park, which stretches across an area matching the size of Belgium. After an excursion through the unique population consisting of thousends of elephants, hippos, leopards and zebras you embark on the third day of your unforgettable and impressive cycling holiday across the heart of the country and along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. The route leads you through more national parks, across chain bridges, through dripstone caves, past seal colonies and whale and dolphin territory all the way to Capetown. Amid the surroundings of the metropolis with a population of nearly four million people stretches the Fynbos region with its unique ecosystem consisting of thousands of plant and animal species, which can only be found here.
