Nairobi, Kenya, Africa


Your journey starts in Nairobi and then ride immediately into ‘the bush' as your journey takes your through Masai territory and onto Mount Kilimanjaro. Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania offers a coastal break. Your adventure then takes you west to Lake Malawi, before you ride south to Lilongwe. Zambia, the Zambezi river, the Victoria Falls and the Okavango are still to come!

Riding Conditions

Riders should be competent road riders with advanced riding skills and be comfortable at riding in hot conditions. Off road experience will be very helpful, we ride some tarmac roads which may be in poor condition and there are sections off piste Riders should have ridden overseas previously.

Riders Requirements

Riders must have a full motorcycle licence and should have a minimum of 2 years experience of riding larger bikes. Riders will be riding their own motorcycles, which need to be appropriate and adequate to ride on this type of journey.

Riders must be confident and competent road riders and whilst off-road riding experience is beneficial, it is not essential. What is more important is your own attitude to motorcycle overlanding. You need to be flexible and adaptable if the going gets tough, have the ability to take a positive view to overcome the challenges that riding in developing countries will throw at you and keep a good sense of humor and team spirit.
