When it comes to rallies, Cape Town's got the venues. Coast to coast, the scenery is spectacular, the roads are pothole free and un-policed and the campsites are a plenty.

But First a Few Rules...

Municipalities and campsite owners view motorcycle rallies with a little trepidation. They are a very territorial, especially when the areas involved are out on the edges of Cape Town. "Dirty Banners" "Doughnuts" and "rude behaviour" are frowned upon by the locals.

Venues:

Ellensrust Campsite

Ellensrust campsite in Stilbaai is right off the N2 to Mosselbay. Featuring a spacious caravan park next to a lagoon. Just take the Stilbaai turn off and look left approximately 25 kms down the road, you'll see the signs.

Catch the Freedom Road Rally at this location which is organised by the Christian Motorcycle Association.

No firearms are permitted on this site.

Nekkies Holiday Resort

This venue near Worcester can be found along the infamous Breede River. Includes braai areas, hot showers, swimming pool and a tarred drag strip.

Here you'll catch the Annual Swallows Rally happening on the 24th - 26th of March. This rally is said to be one of the most talked about in Cape Town - Curious? Then find out why!

Mossel Bay

The Buffalo Rally in Mossel Bay is for motorcycles only...you have been warned! Hosted by Nomads Motorcycle Club, this is one event not to be missed.

Basically, anything goes at the Buffalo Rally, just respect the property of others. No cars. bakkies, quads, trailers and caravans will be allowed access to the campsite.

No-one knows exactly where this rally will take place! One thing is for sure though, when in Mossel Bay you'll know it when you see it.

As usual, badges, caps, belt buckles and t-shirts will be on sale.

See you at "The Buff"
