Mountain Biking

Experience nature from the saddle of your mountain bike at Khamkirri Adventure Destination, near Augrabies, where you can cycle between the grazing game (as pictured above). You can also do this in in Namaqua National Park, where you may see springbuck, klipsspringer, black backed jacakal or a porcupine. However, Namaqua is best known for its spectacular display of spring flowers, which can be viewed from your bike as you weave across its beautiful landscape. Goegap Nature Reserve in Namaqualand also has some delightful trails.

At Leliefontein there is a challenging 49km circular cycling route; or 30km one way. A permit is required. Contact the Namaqualand District Council.

At Nourivier there is a 29km cycling route, which is fairly easy riding with just a few technical bits. A permit is required. Contact the Namaqualand District Council.

Skurweberg Guestfarm in Sutherland in the Karoo is one of the many guest farms with mountain biking trails and Brulberg Mountain Biking Trails also operate in the Karoo.
