Transafrica - Johennesburg to Zanzibar

You may wonder why an Italian tour operator proposes a motorcycle tour to Africa: you probably don't know that Mototouring have been organizing trips to Africa since 1985. We have therefore decided to add the Transafrica trip to the English list and not just to the Italian one.

The Transafrica tour has been organized every year since 1996 with Italian customers. Groups consist of 15 up to 34 persons (in 2003).

From Johannesburg to Zanzibar, 5500 kms across South Africa - Zimbabwe - Zambia - Malawi and Tanzania.

This bike tour is within everyone's reach, routed almost exclusively on tarmac. The exception is a couple of legs where the tarmac is in "African" condition, although never too difficult for any average motorcyclist, even with a pillion rider. All nights are spent in top-class hotels except for a couple where no alternatives exist in the area. The legs are around 350/400 kilometres per day with 4 sizeable rest stops in enchanting places and hotels: Kruger National Park, Victoria Falls, Lake Malawi, Mikumi National Park, Zanzibar.
