ABOUT THE TRIP:
This adventure puts YOU right in the center of the action: This is the kind of ride where the experiences you’ll live 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, gorgeous and endlessly varied landscapes. We will take you on a unique loop through northern Tanzania. You will see the iconic Kilimanjaro, the Lusotho Highlands, the Great Rift Valley and the picturesque Usambara mountain range. You also will feel the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, while relaxing on a paradisiac beach. The endless expanses of the Maasai steppes will give you a feel for the way of life of the local tribes. . We will also take you on unforgettable safaris: In NgoroNgoro Crater, herds of wild animals that were the inspiration for the "The Lion King" movie creators, await us. In Mkomazi Park, the rhino sanctuary will give you the opportunity to get really close to a few of the last remaining wild black rhinoceros. Tarangire Park is famous for elephants, tree-climbing lions, and giraffe! This expedition offers the perfect mix of unique motorcycle routes, varied attractions - you will visit Maasai villages and the Hadza tribe, a coffee plantation and plenty of natural wonders. Join us to live your very own "Out of Africa”experience, but on a motorbike!
