Three Plett teams conquer Expedition Africa 2017

The Expedition Africa 2017 adventure race saw team Skylotec Adventure place first on Wednesday, 18th of May after only four days of racing. As they anticipated their several days of catching up on sleep and stuffing themselves to replenish and refuel their minds and bodies, the remaining racers were still dreaming of crossing that line.

Plett Tourism’s sponsored participants, the Plett Adventure Racing Team, crossed the line in 10th place, after 105 hours and 514km of adventure racing, closely following another popular Plett adventure racing team: Buco Adventures, finishing in 9th place. Also, completing this mammoth challenge was 3 Dutchmen and a Lady, finishing the full route of Expedition Africa for the first time.

Plett Tourism is proud to sponsor our Plett Adventure icons as a symbol of the adventurous nature of our beautiful town and congratulate the Plett Adventure Racing Team, Buco Adventure and 3 Dutchmen and a Lady on their completion and placing in Expedition Africa 2017.  Read the full story

Minister Alan Winde rides the inaugural Cross Cape Cycle Route

On 12th May, an intrepid group of cyclists set off from Plett’s Main Street on the inaugural ride of the Cross Cape Cycle Route, from Plett to Stellenbosh.

Bitou Mayor, Peter Lobese, welcomed the cyclists by saying: “We are grateful for this wonderful opportunity to put our town in the spotlight. Plett is home. It is alpha & omega, you can start here, and end here.

Minister Alan Winde, who also cycled the route, said that “one of the purposes of the Cross Cape Cycle Route is to connect our small villages and grow their economy whilst allowing cyclists and adventure tourists to see different parts of our country that are off the beaten track”.

The Cross Cape Cycle Route is the first of its kind in our region and promises both locals and tourists the opportunity to use the route for transport and as a tourism route.
