Kamieskroon in the Northern Cape must be the best kept secret in Adventure Biking.

The contrast of the landscape from Hondeklipbaai in the West to Kamasies on the edge of Boesmanland in the East will just blow your mind! Pictures don’t do justice to the scenery in this area and riding your bike here is a must for every adventure biker.

Situated just South of Springbok, Kamieskroon is set among the granite rock formations of the Kamiesberg range in the Northern Cape province of South Africa.  Kamieskroon’s origins lie in the 1860s, 7km north of its present position. It took the name Bowesville (later Bowesdorp), after the district surgeon, Dr Henry Bowe.

As there was little room to expand in the narrow kloof the town occupied, the church council decided, in 1924, to rebuild it at Kamieskroon. Kamies might derive from the Nama word ‘kam’, meaning two – referring to the twin peaks of the mountain. The ‘kroon’, a 330m peak crowned with a huge, cleft rock, is a kilometre from the village.

Leliefontein Methodist Church and Parsonage – Both national monuments in Namakwa’s oldest village. In 1902 Boer leader Manie Maritz massacred members of the Leliefontein mission community that were suspected of being British sympathisers.

Lt DJ Darter’s Grave – The grave of a British officer killed during the Anglo-Boer War, Darter’s grave – 15km south of the town – is the smallest piece of foreign land registered in South Africa, in an area that saw many skirmishes during the war.

We leave Cape Town on Thursday morning around 8:30 from Malmesbury to Klawer

We take the fastest route to Bitterfontein where we will hit the dirt and farm roads that runs through beautiful granite mountains providing a very scenic route all the way to Kamieskroon Hotel.

Kamieskroon area offers a lot of ridding and its impossible to explain the routes we will take every day. A lot of tracks are not on maps and we change them all the time as we gauge the groups ability and energy, thus making sure everyone have fun.

There are various old passes in the area like Wildepaardehoek pass, Killians pass, Messel Pass and Kamiesberg Pass to name but a view. Our routes will include most of them and will provide you with some great riding and scenery

Routes will be briefed every morning.

Intermediate skill level – The routes on this bike tour is comfortable and will be easy to navigate for the average rider.There are some tricky sections here and there but just enough to get your adrenaline pumping and give you a great story to tell around the fire in the evening. 

You must be comfortable riding at an average of 80 KM/H on solid pack dirt roads (in other words a dirt highway) and have the ability to handle some loose stuff here and there. Roads in the area are mostly solid pack dirt roads and tracks but depending on traffic and when last it was graded there can be a little loose stuff here and there.
