TOUR DESCRIPTION:


This adventure puts YOU right in the center of the action: This is the kind of ride where the experiences you’ll live on this tour will stay with you for a lifetime.
An expedition designed by people who love this part of Africa, but also know a thing or two about motorcycles!
An adventure ride combining off-road riding, wildlife, beaches, the highest sand dunes in the world, the world’s oldest desert, safaris, relaxation on the beach too.
We will take you on a unique loop through Namibia: You will see the world famous Etosha park, Sossuvlei, the Atlantic Ocean coast, ancient rock carvings.
You will also get a feel for the way of life of some of the most ancient tribes of Africa, but also touch some of the colonial history with a visit to the beautiful town of Swakopmund.
An unforgettable safari at Etosha National Park, famous for its wildlife diversity (the big 4 and ugly 5 are almost sure to be seen) is also on our program!

This expedition offers a great mix of riding: long 4×4 desert tracks, single tracks, dune riding, varied attractions, culture and absolutely unique natural wonders. We’ll also climb the steepest pass of Namibia, with gradients of 14%: Spreetshoogte pass
We’ll stay close to nature with a number of comfortable camping nights in the desert.
