A trip through the Baviaans gorge is an exhilarating experience.

Literally translated, the name means “baboon’s gorge”, the center piece of a rugged wilderness area in the Eastern Cape province.

A spectacular trail almost 200 km long snakes through the pristine area that has been designated a World Heritage Site on account of its unique natural beauty and wildlife. Challenging in places, the route fords numerous water crossings, traverses two mountain passes and allows the rider a close-up look at some of the world’s most intriguing natural rock sculptures.

      • Hi Derek
        I have just read your article. In one week I will fly from Germany to SA and start a long trip by motorbike to the North of Africa. I would like to ride your suggested trips, if possible in winter time.
        Do you have any detailed description or gpx tracks?
        Thanks for your help,
        wishes
        Frank
