On this tour, marvel at the colossal Fish River Canyon in Namibia, tackle the famous Caprivi Strip on your way to the thunderous Victoria Falls, and ride with herds of elephants in Botswana. This tour has it all!
This tour's accommodation is a mixture of fixed safari tent's, brick buildings, hotels, guesthouses, and lodges. You can upgrade your accommodation at private game reserve to Busch Camp (luxury safari tent in the reserve).
Please note that the below itinerary is only a guide and is subject to change.
You will arrive in Cape Town and take the delivery of rental bikes. Spend the rest of the day taking in a couple of sights in and around Cape Town. You will have a group evening meal with a chance to get to know your fellow adventurers and guide. Any doubts, concerns, or questions should be asked at this time.
You will leave Cape Town and head for Namibia. Tonight will be spent on the West Coast of South Africa in Namaqualand. This area is well-known for its carpets of wildflowers in the spring. The landscape will start to change dramatically as the closer you get to Namibia the more moon-like it becomes, so make sure your camera is charged and ready.
Today’s ride takes you to the world’s second largest canyon, the Fish River Canyon. Take in this spectacle at the viewing sites and marvel at the unique landscape. Try to remember the last time you felt miles from home and double that feeling.
Today is another early start but the ride is truly scenic. Today, you will head further north to Seeheim. This is a settlement in the ǁKaras Region of southern Namibia. The only notable structures in Seeheim today are the hotel and the railway station but the remoteness and sheer vastness reminds you there is nowhere like Namibia; as only a handful of people live there. As you travel, the landscape changes continually. You have to keep reminding yourself that you are still in the same country.
If Namibia is Africa for beginners, then Windhoek is very much its capital in more than name only. It's the sort of place that divides travellers, with those who love it for the respite it offers from the rigours of life on the African road facing off against those who find it a little too 'Western' for their African tastes. And they're both right but the city is only the gateway to the Caprivi Strip and Zambia.
Today is a short ride from Windhoek to your next lodge. Unload the luggage as you arrive and for those who wish to, they can visit the Namibian cheetah conservation for a chance to get up close to the fastest land animal and Africa’s most endangered big cat. You will learn about the cheetahs’ habits and the guide will explain the work being done to keep Namibia the country with the highest number of wild cheetah.
From Rundu, you will continue on your journey, travelling along the narrow Caprivi Strip. You might have noticed the Caprivi Strip on a globe or atlas; it’s that 280-mile-long panhandle of Namibia stretching improbably eastward toward Zimbabwe. Of all the weird African borders caused by the colonial carve-up of the 19th century, Caprivi is one of the nuttiest and one of the most glamorously named, since it’s also been called “Itenge” or “the Okavango Panhandle”; adventurous sounding names straight from a pulp novel or Indiana Jones movie. But the Caprivi Strip’s odd past and turbulent present are an accident. It only exists because someone forgot about the largest waterfall in the world! The next lodge is situated near a town called Rundu. The lodge has a spectacular view over the Okavango River and floodplains of southern Angola.
Today, you will head for Zambia, travelling through the Caprivi Game Park where you could be sharing the road with a variety of animals. Don’t be surprised to see elephants or giraffes crossing your path. Tonight is spent in the Namibian town of Katima Mulilo, on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River.
The next 3 days will be spent at the lodge on the banks of the Marimba River where you can enjoy meals and drinks just feet away from elephants, hippos, and crocs. Some of the guests have stumbled across hippos enjoying the grass on the lawns of the camp. This is the time to relax and enjoy some rest time. Tonight will be spent on a Zambezi river cruise (watch the African sunset over the mighty Zambezi while enjoying complementary drinks and listening to African drums). Be sure to fetch your camera for amazing pictures of hippos, elephants, and countless African birds framed by the African sunset.
The next day is spent crossing into Zimbabwe to view one of the natural wonders of the world: Victoria Falls. The choice is yours; ride across the Victoria Falls bridge and complete the furthest point on your trip by motorbike or for those that want an easier time, you can use the back up truck.
The third day is a rest day, but for those that haven’t had enough adventure, your guide can arrange a bungee jump from the Victoria Falls bridge, an early morning micro light flight over the falls, or even a cultural village tour to get a real glimpse into Africa as Livingstone saw it.
Today, you make your way into Botswana via the largest ferry in Africa (just room for one truck and the bikes). You cross the mighty Zambezi and head for a campsite. The distance is short but the achievement is rewarding (difficult to get to but so worth it). With the claim to be the best bar in the world, you will not believe the sight of hundreds of elephants, cape buffaloes, and sometimes lions only feet away from the drinks terrace that overlooks the watering hole every evening. This amazing place demands 2 nights and for anyone wishing to, a trip into the world famous Chobe National Park is also an option.
Today, you reach your hotel on the way to the South African border crossing. Tonight is all about getting enough rest for the next 2 days involve major miles.
Today, you reach the capital city of South Africa’s Northern Cape Province. It’s known for its 19th-century diamond mines, like the deep, hand-dug Big Hole. Nearby, the Kimberley Mine Museum is a re-creation of the town in its heyday, and displays jewellery and uncut diamonds.
After a hearty breakfast, you have a long ride through the North Cape to reach Paterson and your home for the next 2 nights; a private reserve. You will do an afternoon game drive before meeting in the bush at a Lapa for a traditional African 3-course meal and drinks. You then do a night drive while heading to your accommodation. The next morning, get up early for another game drive to check out any lion kills, then on to breakfast. The adventure continues with a private boat and a day spent looking for marine life and the giant right whales that come every year to mate in the waters around Port Elizabeth. You are then transported back to the reserve and your accommodation. The tented camps offer complete freedom as every encampment is safely nestled in private clusters of bush, leaving the guests surrounded by luscious greenery, trees, singing birds, antelopes, and the roaring of the lions giving it a natural uninterrupted feel.
Today, you ride the spectacular garden route to Mossel Bay with a chance to see dolphins and whales in the bay. Take pictures, relax, and reflect on the last two weeks of adrenaline-filled fun.
Tonight, you will arrive back at your start with time to visit the African penguin colony along the way. Tell your tales, share your pictures, and share a drink with your new friends.
The bikes are returned and your flights depart from Cape Town International Airport (CPT).
