Tankwa Trek

Momentum Health Tankwa Trek presented by Biogen

The first stage will be into the Witzenberg Valley, the second into the Ceres Valley and the third will explore the Koue Bokkeveld itself. All the routes are to be designed by local farmers, all of whom are avid mountain bikers, so you can prepare yourself for a tough but rewarding race. February is notoriously hot in the Bokkeveld, but not even the fierce African sun will compare to the warmth of the hospitality offered by Kaleo. The campsite is situated under the cooling branches of a grove of oak trees and azure waters of the nearby farm dam will serve to cool your aching body while you await the nourishing post cycle country cuisine
