If you've ever seen Charlie Boorman and Ewan McGregor's most excellent motorcycle journey through Africa, you may be interested to know that you too can enjoy the adventure! You can even ride with Charlie from Victoria Falls to Cape Town, courtesy of MotoAventures.
Motorcycle tours in Africa are as exciting and challenging as you want them to be. You can rent a Triumph for a day and cruise the Cape Peninsula in South Africa, or join a 3 week tour through the Sahara Desert and create your own Dakar Rally experience. Most motor cycle tours include bike rental, some off-road coaching and of course mechanical support throughout the trip.
There are some wonderful tours that include Ethiopia's Omo River Region, as well as motorcycle safaris through the best wildlife parks in East Africa. You can opt for a few days ride in Morocco's Atlas Mountains before heading to the Sahara for some fun in the dunes.
