Adventure

Tours

Tour Overview

Our tours span a total of 7 days – five days of riding and two rest days.

The cost of the tour is per person and includes a range of services and activities to ensure a memorable experience.

Riding Experience

Each day, expect to spend 5-6 hours in the saddle, regardless of our location. These enduro tours are 98% off-road (with minimal gravel road riding), focusing on technical skill over speed. Our routes are designed to challenge and improve your technical skills without being overly difficult. As Alfie puts it, “You’ll leave feeling accomplished, having learned and enjoyed the more technical aspects of riding.”

For every technical section, there is an alternative route available. Alfie, with over two decades of tour experience since 1996, is present throughout the tour to assist riders with challenging obstacles. If need be Alfie will ride a participants motorcycle up or through any obstacle of which they may be unsure of. Alfie is proud to be one of the oldest KTM Tour operators globally, dedicated to delivering an unforgettable off-road adventure.

Itinerary at White Clay

 

We spend three days at White Clay Resort, riding each day. Meals are provided at the resort, with the exception of lunch, which we enjoy at various stops during our rides. After each ride, snacks and refreshments are available back at White Clay Resort, providing riders with a chance to relax.

During our stay at the Wild Coast, we ride three different trails. The east loop is 80km, the south loop is 70km, and the inland loop is also about 80km. The terrain consists of grassy hills, rocky goat paths, river crossings, forests and rocks.  The trails are awesome, offering stunning views from high cliffs overlooking the Indian Ocean, where it’s common to see dolphins and occasionally whales.

Travel to Natal

 

On the 4th day, we travel back to Natal for a rest day. This drive covers 500km and takes approximately 6 hours. Accommodation in Natal is at Jackson’s Drift B&B, located on our smallholding, where we also run our motorcycle dealership (ALFIE COX RACING). The B&B cottages are en-suite, with two persons sharing if there are more than six participants, otherwise, single rooms are available.

Riding in Natal

 

We ride two different routes within a 100km radius of Jackson’s Drift whilst staying in Natal. The routes include forests, sugar cane plantations, traditional villages, rocky paths, goat paths, rivers, and bushveld. Breakfast is served at the cottages, packed lunches are provided, and dinners will be at local restaurants. One evening will be hosted at Alfie’s home where a traditional meal (braai/bbq) is served.

We also visit a local safari park for a game drive followed by breakfast, typically on the last day of the tour.
