A motorcycle trip through the real Africa will stay with you for the rest of your life.
Whether you’re cruising through the Magadi Desert as an 18-year-old adventurer, ascending Mount Suswa with a Masai, or embarking on a solo super tuff tour around Lake Victoria, it leaves a lasting impression. You ride towards the edge of the world, accompanied by zebras and giraffes. Even a city trip through Nairobi feels more profound from a ‘piki piki.’ Actually, it doesn’t matter what you do; a motorcycle trip through the real Africa will stay with you for the rest of your life.
What are your options?
Less experienced riders
But I’m not at all experienced enough for Africa. No worries: we start with a practice ride in a safe and empty place, and only once you feel comfortable we head out into the wilderness! Here you also have plenty of time to get to know your bike better: there is no traffic, no distractions, just breathtaking nature.
Highly experienced riders
For experienced motorcyclists, Africa offers an adventure that cannot be found anywhere else. Across non-existent roads through the savannah, with red earth beneath you, and endless horizons in front of you. It may sound cheesy the way it’s written here, but it’s just indescribably awesome. More experience means more possibilities, and others have gone before you, riding all around Lake Victoria or how about from Jo’burg to Nairobi; not exactly an easy commute. We have plans, we have ideas, but if you have a cool route that we’ve overlooked; SHOUT IT OUT. New adventures are our life’s work.
Rather on the back?
That you prefer not to be behind the wheel yourself doesn’t mean you have to miss out on a fantastic trip! In fact, riding pillion on the motorcycle means you don’t have to focus on gears or sudden obstacles; instead, you can take in the surroundings. You don’t have to worry about safety either: the average Masai jumps on a motorcycle around the age of ten. In other words, you’re in good hands.
