Good day. Hope that you are well.

I am keen to do the Ben 10 Challenge as described on the Mountain Passes South Africa website and I was thinking of doing it in the last week of May 2018.

If anyone is interested in joining me, please email me.

Francois.

Hi Garry. Haven't yet done the costing and looked at all the details, but I estimate the following as a guideline/starting point:

  1. Take 2 days to get to our starting point Mountain View Country Inn
  2.  Take 3/4 days to do the passes
  3. Take 2 days to get back home
  4. Total of 7/8 days
  5. Estimated cost: minimum of R4300 per person for DBB plus R2000 for petrol = Total of R6300 per person.

I looked at doing the same - but have had to delay the trip to some other time. The issue is getting there - looked at trailering the bikes up but too expensive. There is a good article on this in the latest Getaway magazine with some ideas of routes, accommodation etc.

Good luck!

Tks Peter. I saw the article - useful info. I prefer to ride to the start of the Ben 10: only about 1100 km.
