2016 – our amazing 16 days from Cape Town to Victoria Falls through South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe
A journey that started 16 days earlier in cape town.
After riding our bikes for more than 5000kms through the amazing variety of scenery that Africa offers, the South African motorcycle tour track arrives at its final destination – Victoria Falls. With the spectacular view over the Zambezi river, Victoria Falls are the most stunning, majestic waterfalls that our travellers can see in Zimbabwe and the African Continent.
The group of adventurers that have accompanied us on this journey through Africa, have had the privilege of living a unique experience through the continent where human civilisation began, seeing and enjoying the wonders of African nature at first hand, majestic animals in their natural habitats and fabulous scenery, impossible for many to put into words. From landing at Cape Town’s International airport until our final destination at Victoria Falls, the group has shared 16 intense days of discovery and adventure. Travelling along dusty, rough roads, frequently not passing another vehicle for many miles; seeing elephants and hippos bathing in the mud; watching families of warthogs in the grounds of our hotel; enjoying amazing African sunsets or awakening to the sound of antelopes calling nearby – these are just a few of the marvellous experiences we have shared with MotoAventures.

The spectacular landscape of Victoria Falls cannot be fully enjoyed in one day, so a night at Victoria Falls is the only option. With this in mind, we spend the last night of our expedition in a lovely African lodge close to the Falls, with rooms looking out over the grounds and offering a wonderful dinner on the terrace. The clouds of spray from the Falls can be seen in the distance.
The next morning, the special light of an African dawn “knocks at our doors”, advising us that our journey is coming to an end. After a plentiful breakfast on the hotel terrace, we set off on foot to visit the Falls and to explore the forest trails around them, a place where time seems to stop. Time to get our cameras out and the last group photo, a final memento of this amazing adventure.
