Camp Jabulani, a five-star, ultra-deluxe game lodge near Kruger National Park in South Africa, has partnered with … Harley-Davidson motorcycles? Indeed. And they're offering a roaring getaway for truly wild women.
Cycle sales to women are way up!
This trip starts off at The Saxon, Johannesburg’s finest hotel, then zips away on a “diamond tour” to see and feel some of the world’s most brilliant gems. Rental Harleys are tuned and ready to roll along a 300-mile (!) journey through wild and beautiful African countryside, right into multi-award-winning Camp Jabulani for three nights. (A trailer truck, big enough to pick up bikes and/or riders, will bumble along behind in your red dust.) At Camp Jabulani, each of the six suites has a private deck, plunge pool, fireplace, private bar, a/c, big bath … and, of course, a personal butler. (Hey, solo ladies, we are so ready for this!!) Add to that champagne breakfasts, elegant bush dinners, and gym and spa services.
Animals? Oh, yes, we almost forgot. One can choose to view the game via elephant-back safari, open Land Rovers, and at sunrise, by hot-air balloon to see giraffe, wildebeest, zebra and warthogs in awesome aerial array.
On the fifth day, roar out for a short 150-mile ride toward the Drakenburg Mountains, climbing above sea level to Walkerson’s, to an elegant hotel in the trout fishing highlands. Next day, ride that trusty Harley 150 miles more to Pretoria. The last leg of this adventure is by luxury minibus back to Johannesburg. Wow.
This trip is for the fearless — and the rich: $5,062 per person, sharing.
