ABT Day rides from Umhlanga Rocks

We have a variety of day rides to choose from if you happen to be staying at one of our remarkable hotels or guest houses and would like to have an adventurous day out. All our rides are guided so there’s no chance of getting lost.

The minimum required riding gear for these day rides will be long trousers, preferably denims, closed shoes such as sneakers and a comfortable top relative to the season. We will provide a meticulously maintained Honda CRF1000 Africa Twin motorcycle, helmets, gloves and riding jackets.

Motorcycle licence and travel insurance is compulsory. We’ll need verification and a vehicle excess deposit will be required.

Tours run daily subject to availability.

North Coast and Midlands Lunch Run (All day)

This spectacular ride will make you feel as though you’ve been gone for weeks.

After a very short transfer (8am) from your accommodation we will have a rider’s safety briefing. In no time we’ll be kitted out and ready to ride.

We’ll head north along the scenic M4 and route towards Tongaat from Westbrook. At Tongaat we travel inland through spectacular sugar cane farmlands and forestry farmed meticulously by generations of German farmers. We’ll stop for coffee at Wartburg.  If conditions permit, some of the riding will be on easy gravel where you’ll get to see some amazing countryside that most visitors to our country will never see.

The pinnacle of this journey will be at our lunch stop where you’ll experience the splendour of the Drakensberg mountain range, now known as the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park and also a World Heritage Site.

We would have travelled 240km for 3 hours and deservedly need a break. So what happens now?

Lunch will be had at the best restaurant in the region. It has unsurpassed views, stunning cuisine and a micro brewery. Let’s indulge!

A back up vehicle and trailer will load the motorcycles and transport them back to Umhlanga. After a long lunch has been enjoyed in this spectacular environment, you’ll enjoy a comfortable transfer back to your hotel (1.5 hours).
