The Worlds’ Best Biker Tour: The RHINO TOUR & MORE

The RHINO TOUR & MORE starts with an official Welcome Party, at the Trader Bar in Sun City, hosted by SA Bike magazine (South Africa’s leading motorcycle magazine - circulation 30,000 monthly), the organisers of the Rhino Rally. SA Bike, also organise two other rallies the Impala Rally, and the Paradise Rally.

The tour travels via highest point in South Africa, over the scenic Long Tom Pass and via the breathtaking Panorama Route stopping at the quaint gold digger’s town of Pilgrim’s Rest. We then drive north to view the Three Rondavels at the incredible Blyde River Canyon – the only green canyon in the world.

We visit Kruger Park for a 4 x 4 game drive, then Swaziland and the Royal Swazi Sun hotel, followed by the Battlefields Tour Dundee and Glencoe, with a small ceremony at Islandlwana, then Fugitive Drift  and then Rorkes Drift, and then  to two days at the Rhino Rally itself. After a small stop in the Drakensberg Mountains with an evening dinner cruise on the lake - it is then onto the Sibaya Resort at Durban, on the Dolphin Coast, via the Valley of a Thousand Hills.

The tour is designed to include local bikers from South Africa in the first stage, finishing the tour at the Rhino, but it will be marketed internationally via magazines, and motorcycle web portals, but it will also be marketed directly to biker clubs.  

Simon had travelled all over South Africa and he has a keen interest in history. He also knew that a lot of people would be fascinated by the Battlefields areas which are close to Harrismith. Visiting the lush country of Swaziland and seeing the wildlife of Kruger Park, not to mention Sun City and Durban Casino Resort would also be a major draw. It was important that the tour was like a ‘road movie’, and had a goal of reaching the sea by heading south.

The TV series 'The Long Way Down' and the Fifa 2010 World Cup, are also factors stimulating interest in motorcycling in South Africa. People see things on television and think ‘I would like to do that myself’ says Simon.
