Adventure Big Five ABF

Botswana   |  Namibia   |  South Africa   |  Zimbabwe

From wild flowers to the deserts, from the wildlife paradise to one of the mightiest waterfalls!

Whatever your African dreams look like, you are likely to make them come true on this motorcycle tour:

Cape Town, South Africa’s “Mother City”, one of the world’s most beautiful cities and home of the famous Chapman‘s Peak; the wildflower season in the Northern Cape province; Fish River Canyon, second-largest canyon in the world; and the Namib Desert, one of the driest places and one of the oldest ecosystems on earth. And in its heart lies the Sossusvlei, a place of exceptional beauty which words simply cannot describe; the town of Swakopmund, where German colonial heritage is still visible at every corner; Windhoek, Namibia’s bustling, yet relaxed capital city; the Kalahari Desert, a land full of thorn trees and home to the San people, one of the world’s oldest cultures; the Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland river delta; Chobe National Park, one of the best wildlife observation parks in Africa; and last but certainly not least – the Victoria Falls, one of the mightiest waterfalls on earth and a sight to behold.

Maybe you should stop dreaming and come on this motorcycle tour!
