ROUTE

Where the sheep trails takes you...

ROUTE DETAILS

The Tour will start with a 20km ride into the sunset and welcomed to spectacular Karoo night skies. Day 2 is a tough one but definitely the most scenic route of the tour passing the old farm house G.A. Watermeyer grew up in to beautiful dam wall crossings over 58km in total. Day 3 will consist of approximately 55km through neighboring farms only available to ride during Lormar Tours.

There’s also a Lormar Mini category for riders wanting to do shorter distances each day. The Lormar Mini will also start with a 20km ride into the sunset for day 1. Day 2 will consist of an approximately 28km ride followed by day 3 a 30km ride.

You can expect to ride a combination of jeeptrack, a few singletracks and smooth “sheep trail” sections through the beautiful Karoo. We’ve also added the occasional bridge to make it an Ultimate Karoo Experience.
