THE second annual Light the Fire biking lifestyle festival has a non-stop line-up that will take guests to the tourism hot spots of the South Coast from Thursday 28 April to Saturday 30 April.

This will be a forerunner to the main Light the Fire event which runs from 30 April to 1 May said event organiser­, Sinethemba Dhlomo of Integrated­ Concepts.

The event is an opportunity to showcase venues, sights and activities on offer in and around the Zulu kingdom.

Participant excursions will include the main sponsors – the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Economic Development Tourism & Environmental Affairs and Tourism KZN, among others – and VIP celebrity bikers, Motorcycle Club (MCC) presidents, media and stakeholders.

“On Thursday 28 April, visitors experience the Wild Swing at the top of Lehr’s Waterfall where bungee jumping or zip-lining 165m over Oribi Gorge will start, followed by a game drive, or horse at Lake Eland Game Reserve and brunch at Leopard Rock overlooking a quintessentially African view.

The day will end with a sunset boat cruise, snorkelling, jet skiing, shark-cage diving at Shelly Beach and sundowners at the upmarket Stages Restaurant­ & Lounge, promising 270-degree ocean views from Port Shepstone’s beachfront.

“On day two breakfast will be served at Mac Banana, then straight to the main event of the day where a mass charity ride to Gamalakhe sports ground will take place to hand over a cheque to the Gamalakhe Community Development Foundation that assists the community with uniforms, school shoes, tertiary fees, career training and business opportunities.

“Ending off the day will be a rooftop pool party at Hillbillion Estate,” said Dlhomo.

Guests can enjoy a complimentary three-course dinner, welcome drinks and music from deejays.

The next two days will be a motoring extravaganza where custom bikes will be on show at Dezzi Raceway.

“As part of the bike extravaganza, Seipei ‘Biker Queen’ Mashugane, Alfred ‘King Donut’ Matamela, Brian Capper and MCC riders will be spinning and performing stunts followed by a spectacular showdown of bike vs car with Africa’s fastest brother, Gugu Zulu, behind the wheel of a Backdraft Racing Cobra.

Prize giving will be held for various motorbike clubs.

“The motorcycle club with most attendees will win R10 000, best show and shine R2 500, best bikers anthem R2 500 and there will be many other prizes in varioius catagories,” said Dhlomo.

Tickets available at Computicket - R80 for general, R50 for pensioners and children under 12 and R350 for VIP. - Supplied.
