SOUTH AFRICA and NAMIBIA. 16 day motorcycle tour.
Our main attraction here is the mystical and beautiful african country of Namibia which we will experience as it should: on board a bmw motorcycle. But we will have the opportunity to ride through South Africa as well. As we make our way from Cape Town to Windhoek we will be taken back by the surprisingly, ever changing landscapes, the vast country with its plains, deserts and dunes, the extensive wildlife, the jaw-dropping, big open skies and the indescribably incredible feeling of freedom riding the gravel roads of Namibia.. yeah that's what we all crave!
Starting in Cape Town, we wind our way through breathtaking coastal routes and work our way north, via the Cape Winelands towards the Tankwa Karoo, exploring the backroads of the Cederberg mountain range.
We ride along the Fish River Canyon and make our way towards the coast. Then back inland, exploring the hidden gems of the desert and finally we end off on a high at the Etosha National Park with its abundant wildlife. This ride is one you can't miss, come join us! Let's build stories about unforgettable moments in Africa.
