There is a massive food culture in South Africa and a motorcycle tour is a fantastic way to sample the culinary delights. You may actually be surprised by the array of different influences you will find here. As well as the traditional recipes of the indigenous population, the Dutch, French, German & British settlers all introduced their own culinary delights. When you add into the mix the delicious dishes brought along by the Malays & Indians from the East you will be hard pushed not to fall in love with the eclectic mix of now traditional meals on offer.
From braaibroodjies to biltong, boerewors to bobotie, the locals certainly know their cumin from their coriander. Our South African motorcycle tours are not only about the riding and we understand that food is always an important parts of everyones holiday and we aim to serve you an array of all the local dishes. We know that after a hard days riding there’s little better than to share a cold beer or glass of wine around an open fire while our local team cooks you a traditional meal over the hot coals.
The seafood is phenomenal, the braai (BBQ) is a way of life and the melktert is a must try (Cameraman Ian’s personal favourite, who can easily polish off in one sitting a tart that serves 8). South Africans take their cooking very seriously and love ‘shisanyama’. Shisanyama is a Zulu word which literally translates as “to burn meat’ and refers to the act of friends and family coming together to cook meat on an open fire… you’ll certainly get into the spirit of shisanyama on these South African motorcycle holidays!
The wine in South Africa is not only amazing, but it’s super cheap! And don’t worry – we keep the support vehicle fully stocked!
