Description

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 dunes in the world, the world’s oldest desert, safaris, and relaxation on the beach too.

We will take you on a unique loop through Namibia. You will see the world-famous, Sossuvlei, the Atlantic Ocean coast, and ancient rock carvings.

You will also get a feel for the way of life of some of the most ancient tribes of Africa (Himba and Damara) but also touch on some of the colonial histories with a visit to the beautiful town of Swakopmund. You will admire the rock engravings in Twyfelfontein.

An unforgettable safari at a unique private wildlife game reserve, famous for its wildlife diversity is also on our program! You will see giraffes, elephants, various types of antelopes, zebras, ostriches, hypos, and even rhinos!

This expedition offers a great mix of riding: long 4×4 desert tracks, single tracks, dune riding, varied attractions, culture, and 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 several comfortable camping nights in the desert.
