Tour Description

We hunt the big five (elephant, lion, black rhino, leopard and the buffalo) with our cameras and our big lenses in one of the largest private game reserve! And who knows, maybe you might be that lucky and ride next to an elephant with your motorcycle.

Place of gold

This tour starts in Johannesburg. The Zulu’s call this city “Egoli” – Place of Gold. The first Gold was found here in 1886. Today the deepest goldmine penetrates close to 4’000m (13’124 feet or 2.49 miles) into the earth. You’ll get to know how many Gramm or ounce per tons of Gold are collected in some South African mines, what does Soweto means and see how a township looks like from the inside.

Then why always the Big Five?

Find out with us a new awareness and appreciate the sighting of lesser known animals. The seeing of a suni antelope also called Livingstone’s antelope or a tsessebe could be just as exciting. Have you ever heard about the little five? The elephant shrew, the red-billed buffalo weaver, the rhinoceros beetle, the leopard tortoise and the ant lion. There is lots to discover and learn on this unique Twincruiser Tour.

New Year in Cape Town?
Yes and why not end the tour in Cape Town just before New Year?
Let go of 2017, free your spirit and start the New Year in one of the world’s most beautiful cities. It also be the occasion to watch the Kaapse Klopse,  a minstrel festival that takes place at that time of the year.
