Adventure - Motorcycle Touring in Southern Africa
Southern Africa is considered one of the planets greatest locations and collections of countries to ride.
We tour in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Lesotho and Zambia. Even in regions we don’t have specific tours running, we have a MASSIVE database of GPS tracks to assist you with the safest and greatest Motorcycle Travel experience on the African Continent.
ALL our tours are available in two formats... "Guided" with an experienced Motorcycle guide - or "Self Guided" on a per-programmed GPS and all is done for you... The route, accommodation, meals etc.

Generally it’s a budget thing, but let me tell you how different the trip is with a personal guide, who speaks the local language, knows ALL the roads, alternative routes, contingency plans, emergency numbers, and anything you might need when things go wrong.
In 11 years and over 128 guided tours and over 700 clients and a staggering 390 000km, I have only had very very few incidences – because I also manage the riding pace, the fuel usage and being I’m up front, I warn the group if there are any big sand patches, animals jump out in front of me, I change the route if need be in accordance with road conditions, weather, rider fatigue, rider illness and anything that might be a showstopper on the tour.
It doesn’t matter how much experience the group has. This is Africa. And it can be dangerous going if road conditions are not good, and the front riders does not warn others of impending dangers - especially in Namibia (It can get very sandy at times) and you as a stranger to the land only know of the track programmed into the GPS.
A professional guide takes all the thinking out of the ride and you can all enjoy the trip more in a relaxed state.
So the tour becomes a relaxed and fully enjoyable holiday.
The overall the risk of something going wrong, and injury is reduced by 50%
When it comes to bad roads and weather contingency plans - route changes are seamless.
