BMW GS motorcycle adventure South Africa Zimbabwe Zambia Namibia Mozambique Botswana

This 16 days extra-ordinary motorcycle adventure is not your average tour to Africa. With carefully chosen destinations that are not yet accessible by the masses and hand picked and carefully selected lodges, this tour provides an excellent opportunity to see what Africa is all about and experience this great continent first hand.


From South Africa's modern cities with thriving arts and dining scenes to the remoteness and wild life of Zimbabwe, and from the mightiest of water falls - Victoria Falls - to the pristine and relaxed beaches of Mozambique, you will enjoy every new experience this tour offers.


On this tour you will experience the astounding diversity and beautiful landscapes of South Africa. You will enjoy a safari scene that is unparalleled, stunning natural beauty, world-class birdlife and locals whose kindness make any trip unforgettable in Zimbabwe. In this beautiful and under rated country, you will also stand in awe of one of the natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls and if you are lucky enough you can spot the Big Five in its national parks.


You will also experience colonial-style architecture and a long coastline of pristine beaches with swaying palms in the forgotten paradise of Mozambique with all its traditions, cultures, vibes and opportunities for adventure.


This tour begins and ends in Johannesburg, South Africa and offers travel through 3 of the most welcoming Southern African countries: South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. You will cross 3 international borders on this tour including the most busy border in the continent which itself is an experience of its own.


The tour runs primarily on tar roads with about 5% to 10% of the route on gravel roads. While many roads are in very good conditions, but roads in remote areas could be in very bad shape with lots of potholes. The tours starts with a full day of off-road training offered by a BMW certified instructor to ensure the familiarity of each rider with their motorcycles and their ability to ride in most conditions.
