Gravel and Tar Baby – and lots of it. Explore the southernmost tip of Africa via scenic-tour-by-bike.

Arniston embodies the South African “sleepy dorp” image – with no hustle-and-bustle, no night-clubs, very few restaurants… And we love it.

It lies East of the Cape Agulhas National Park: the site of the lowest latitude on the African continent. If you take the R319, you will be guaranteed 60 km of gritty, gravel pedal time. Cape Agulhas is slightly more “awake” than Arniston – it receives far more tourists and is noticeably more vivacious as a result. Kick back in one of the many independent cafés, watch the world go by (perhaps a whale too), capitalise on your bragging rights earned by being at the tip of South Africa’s toe.
