Experience an exhilarating descent downhill with Scootours

Scootours, Outdoor, Western Cape

Scootours, Western Cape

Set in the beautiful mountain ranges of the Western Cape, Scootours is a family-fun activity that will see you returning for more – over and over again.

A great draw with Scootours is that it is not extreme, but centred around allowing families to enjoy the experience together. Young or old, Scootours is something for everyone to enjoy!

Scootours makes use of non-motorised Monster Mountain® Scooters, making this adventure not only exciting, but eco-friendly as well. The scooters have a Swiss design and are even used in the Alps during their summer season along the ski slopes after the snow has melted.

Explore wonderful mountain ranges at your nearest Scootours branch

There are six different Scooters branches across the Western Cape; each one allows you to explore the beauty of the natural surroundings. You can find a branch in Cape Town, Knysna, Drakensberg, Franschhoek, and in Jonkershoek and Middelvlei in Stellenbosch.

The tours last between one to two hours depending on your location. You can freewheel down several different designated tracks and let gravity do all the work.

Scootours will bring you up to the top of the hill and bring the Scooters along so you only have to think about rolling down to the bottom of the hill.

For parents looking for a fun, new place to host their kid’s birthday party, Scootours also has party package available for different age groups. Your kids will be fitted with helmets and cycling gloves and instructed on how to ride the Scooters before going on freewheel runs.

They also offers team building activities for business wanting to improve relationships with co-workers and teamwork. They have a selection of team building options to choose from so you can pick the perfect one that suits your staff and budget.

To find out more about Scootours and what they can do, check out their website and choose the branch closest to you.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
