Also, the optional one-day off-road riding skills course at Feedback Park.

2. How many riders per group?

We believe that a great ride is awesome when it’s shared with the right people. We’ve found that a maximum group size of 8 – 12 works best, although we’ll still run departures with as few as 6 riders.

3. I’ve never done this before – will I be able to cope?

If you’ve ridden an adventure bike before, or you’ve completed an off-road skills course, you’ll be more than fine. The routes may challenge you from time to time, but we will see you through and by the end of the tour, you’ll have more confidence than ever. The routes we ride have been carefully chosen to be fulfilling without being too challenging. Tours that include Off road routes require that you are competent with riding on gravel.

4. What if I don’t have everything I need?

You will have time on day 1 to shop for gear after the route briefing.

5. What if my bike breaks down?

Our guides and support staff are all competent mechanics and we carry plenty of genuine BMW spares. In the very unlikely event that your bike requires more serious attention, simply climb on our spare bike and continue your ride. We’re backed by BMW Motorrad SA so we have access to the best technical support in the business.

6. Where do we stay each night?

We always give you the best option for wherever we are that night. On our tar trips: quality guesthouses hand-picked for comfort, service and location. On our off road trips we stay at guest houses and lodges, with the exception, of simply stunning bucket list worthy bush sites where you will experience our customised 5 star camping

8. Presumably you have insurance?

We’re fully SATIB-insured However, you must also take out your own full travel and medical insurance with evacuation cover. We can assist with quotes from SA Companies that understand Africa
