Event Details

Great Karoo and Hogsback Off-road ride 

Great Karoo
For Many years I have wanted to explore the Great Karoo area around Graaf Reinet as well as the Amathole area around Hogsback. Now after all these years and many discussions with Warren Ellwood (Thanks Warren) I am now in a position to offer an off road Tour to go and experience what these areas have to offer.
Come and join the BMW Motorrad Club Cape as we go on another unforgettable tour making new friends and enjoying some great off road riding.
Please note that non-members are welcome to join us regardless of what dual purpose motorcycle they ride.
The terrain should suit riders of average riding ability.
Passengers are encouraged. Off road tyres are recommended.
We only have 12 rooms available.
Date: 30th September 2022 – 10th October 2022
Seven days leave, 11 days touring.


Please note that our out rides are not compulsory. You are welcome to ride with us or stay behind and explore the areas.
Day 1) An early departure from Cape Town, with our destination being Willowmore where we are booked in on a DB&B basis. The route is dirt and tar.
Day 2) A leisurely start for our mainly off road ride to Graaf Reinet where we stay for 3 nights. 2 of these nights are DB&B and 1 night is B&B so we will eat at one of the restaurants in Town.
