I am planning my holiday for next year. This year I have been in France for cykling there about four weeks. 2013 I want to go to South Africa for a cycling tour in cape town. Here (http://www.africanbikers.com/english/types-of-tours/cycling-tours/all-terrain-bike.html) is the tour I have in mind. But I want to modify it a little bit. Anyone who has positive experience in Africa to share with me?

I've been to Africa three separate times for a total of about four months. I've spent time in east and southern Africa. Africa is terrific! Never done any bicycling, however. Roads, when I was there, seemed pretty dangerous. None of the national parks that I visited would let you inside unless you were in a car. That said, Cape Town is probably the best spot for a mountain bike tour. I ran into a guy who did a short (3-5 day?) tour by mountain bike in the Cape Town vicinity and he thought it was pretty fun. Unfortunately, I wasn't into bicycling at that time so I don't remember any of the details :(
Don't know if this is any use to you but this is an information site for bike touring in South Africa (http://www.shanecycles.com/cycling-info/info/country-info-for-cyclists/item/57-south-africa-info-for-cyclists).
