Victoria Falls to Cape Town 2010, Day 8

Hog’s Back to Addo. Another day of great off roading. Beautiful sweeping roads, little traffic and a good variety of surfaces. Last 30kms where technical 1st and 2nd gear rocky stuff, made all the more interesting by on coming rally cars taking part in one of those Variety Bash type things.

Garry was caught and had to FORCE down 2 tequila shots

Everyone in great spirits with the emphasis on ‘spirits’. A couple of riders where stopped and asked to have a social drink. Garry was caught and had to FORCE down 2 tequila shots. Girls where stopped in the car and asked to perform…perform what, we don’t know…lets just leave it there!!

Day ended with a game drive in Addo Elephant National Park

All done in great spirit and no one got hurt. Day ended with a game drive in Addo Elephant National Park. Saw Kudu, elephant, buffalo, zebra, warthog and an assortment of other animals. If you haven’t been to an African game park a trip with Motoaventures will fix that. Staying at Zuurberg mountain village, very comfortable rooms with 4m height walls, heating and as usual excellent food. Big day tomorrow haven’t decided which route I’m taking.

Lots of laughs when we got to our destinations for the night and those wild animals close-by was as incredible experience. The accommodation was amazing and the people we met, including old friends from previous trips, made our holiday even better!” – Debbie

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
