Victoria Falls to Cape Town 2010, Day 7

Tiffendall to Hogs Back. Toast and tea for breakfast to settle the stomach, looking forward to the days ride, although the plunge down the hill could be a little worrying because of the steep sections.

Actually had a great ride down.

Steep sections were no problem (was not feeling the best on the way up and probably a little fatigued), the dirt at the bottom was just amazing…what a way to start the day, very invigorating.

Stopped for tea and muffins in a little town.

Another great dirt section through the most beautiful country. Lots of goat, sheep and cattle in the surrounding paddocks. No reason for anyone to starve in this country, there’s an abundance of hoofed food. Fuelled mid morning with a samosa and Vetkook (SA delicacy).

Lunch in King Williams town.

Had the bikes GUARDED by Nelson Zuma and his mates, their way of making a little pocket money. Not sure what would have happened if we passed on the offer of security!!! Straight ride on tar and then 30km of dirt to Hog’s back. Su arranged a visit to a guy with vintage bikes, but most of us where too buggered to go but I heard the guy had an amazing collection. Next time I’ll make the effort because I’m a bit of a fan of the old stuff (bikes that is). Accommodation, as we have all come to expect from Motoaventures, is great. Roaring fire going in the bar and a great restaurant. Roast lamb for dinner which was superb AND a lovely piece of pork and crackling. Another great days riding.

“A holiday of a lifetime really is an understatement! It really was the most fantastic experience and your organisation and attention to detail was second to none. Every day was filled with wonderful surprises, the accommodation and feed fantastic and the ride truly amazing!”  – Janice & Greg

Greg is a seasoned adventure motorcyclist with a lifelong passion for all things bike. He’s been lucky enough to turn that passion into a thriving business with the launch of his product ‘HelmetLok’ - the small, portable, keyless security product for crash helmets. With other products on offer as well, and distributors in Australia, the USA, Europe, South Africa and parts of Asia, amazingly Greg and his partner Janice still find time to tour!

Originally published on Greg’s website ‘’, this is Greg’s account of their second trip with us.

In his own words; “…sixteen days of the most spectacular roads through equally spectacular country, each day filled with wonderful surprises. A holiday of a lifetime is really an understatement!

So we approached our second trip with a little trepidation. How the hell are they going to better the last trip? In fact how could it possibly be any better? Here’s a diary of our trip.” …suffice to
