From the dark damp fissures of the world renowned Cango Caves, to the snow packed peaks of the mighty Swartberg mountain range, this is the Dryland Traverse and it is a race like no other. From an underground start to an eventual cresting of the highest mountain range in the Cape, there simply is no equal when it comes to a sense of achievement, setting and the overall spirit – the Dryland Traverse is a must for every adventure seeker.

  • I didn't think it was possible, the best just got better! Thank you to the amazing team at Dryland for once again exceeding our expectations. What a weekend , amazing challenging routes , great food and to all the participants great "Gees" , you guys are the best I think many mountain bikers have become trail runners after this weekend. And how was that party on Saturday evening the charts! The Kraal will be back!

  • I have done many 3 day events (MTB, AR, Trail) and this is probably the one with the best atmosphere ever. I could not believe the party on Saturday night - I have never seen that before on a stage race. Fantastic. Also love the friendly care that the organisers take and attention to detail. Very special event. Well Done!
