Day 9 of 16 Cape Town to Victoria Falls
Continuing northwards we run parallel to the river Klipaat
It’s a feast for our eyes today as we prepare for one of our most beautiful days of biking so far. Continuing northwards we run parallel to the river Klipaat, crossing it from time to time. A mixture of asphalt and gravel roads take us through breath-taking scenery, continually changing from vast, open plains to dramatic rugged mountains. It’s almost hard to keep your eyes on the road with so much beauty around!

Day 7 of 16 Cape Town to Victoria Falls
Leaving Knysna after our rest day
There’s an excited buzz this morning as we prepare to get back on our bikes after yesterday’s rest day. You realise just how much you miss being on the open roads when you don’t ride for a day. Eager for today’s 467km-ride, we all choose which preferred route to take – the busier roads of the main highway, or the quieter smooth, sweeping asphalt roads. The choice is yours!

16 days adventure touring the Kingdom of Morocco
After doing numerous tours with John & Su at MotoAventures both off road in Morocco and adventure touring across Southern Africa, I decided that it was time to sign up for their road tour and discover the Kingdom of Morocco.
We flew into Málaga, Spain for the first night and MotoAventures met us and handed over our very well presented and maintained BMW GS1200s. Not doing it on our own bikes meant we could maximise our holiday time and avoid the 4 days required to travel to and from the UK. Although there is the option to take your own if you want.

Awaken the senses, and your sense of adventure, by experiencing the exotic wonders of the mysterious Kingdom of Morocco.

Leaving the Gondwana Safari park
It’s a short, easy and breezy day today, which is excellent news as it means we can spend a bit more time taking advantage of our beautiful safari lodge.
We leave mid-morning with the rangers who are here again to escort us safely out of the reserve and back onto the gravelly roads. KNYSNA – we’re leaving the Gondwana Safari park.. KNYSNA – we’re leaving the Gondwana Safari park.
Day 4 of 16 Cape Town to Victoria Falls 2018
Today’s adventures include our first real African Safari
Waking up to our glorious sea view, there’s a buzz around the breakfast table as everyone recounts their previous days first bit of off roading! We can hardly wait to get back on what is now quickly becoming our new BMW best friend, for a full day of mostly well prepared gravel roads.
Today’s adventures include our first real African Safari, where we will get up close and personal with South Africa’s wildest creatures. But not before we get a chance to see how the local folk get across the Breede River and have a good old chuckle over some of the weird wonders of Ronnie’s sex shop!
Day 3 of 16 Cape Town to Victoria Falls 2018
It’s time to get back on the road for our second day of riding.
After a restful nights sleep from our pampered night at the spa and an enjoyable breakfast overlooking the spectacular cliffs that surround the hotel, it’s time to get back on the road for our second day of riding.
If there’s any more bike adjustments to be made or questions to be answered from the previous days riding, Johnny is always here to help.
With a shorter ride today, we aim to stop off at one of South Africa’s original fishing villages Gansbaai, just in time to spot the Southern Right whales swimming alongside their babies!
