About this tour

Day one of our Cape to Victoria Falls Tour takes us along South Africa’s picturesque Cape West Coast to Garies where we stay in a luxury tented camp on a private farm. That night we experience the first taste of a real South African braai (barbeque) under the brightest of stars.

Once we cross the border into Namibia, the landscape changes dramatically – enough to take your breath away! We stay on unsealed roads to Swakopmund via the Fish River Canyon. Expect plenty of wildlife as we travel alongside the spectacular Namib Desert.

After a rest day in Swakopmund, we leave the dunes of the Namib Desert behind us and head for Kaokoland via Spitzkoppe. By now we will be confident enough on our BMW adventure motorcycles to take on the road which will be challenging at times. (We do not recommend riding this route solo.) The northwestern part of Namibia is even less densely populated than the areas in the south of the country, and with very little road traffic. En-route we’ll come across the OvaHimba, a semi-nomadic ethnic group in this part of the world.
We allow for enough breaks to stop for cold drinks, to absorb the beauty of the scenic landscape and to capture the very moments on camera.

From Etosha National Park we head east along the Caprivi Strip towards the Okavango Delta. With a rest day at Victoria Falls, there will be plenty of time on hand for all kinds of adventure activities including viewing and experiencing the grandeur of the Victoria Falls, also known as “The smoke that thunders”.

Riding on a motorcycle in Botswana, home to the world’s biggest concentration of African elephants, is a life-changing experience! With 38% of its total land area proclaimed as national parks and reserves, expect stunning scenery, plenty of wildlife and friendly local people.

Once back in South Africa, we briefly visit the Augrabies Falls before we take on the Tankwa Karoo, a region known for its serene beauty amidst its barren landscape.

This tour is a must for the bucket list of every true adventure rider!
