Tour information South Africa - Namibia 2024

What makes our tours special?

In terms of concept, Explo-Tours GmbH was the godfather, which has carried out motorcycle tours of this type for many years.

The focal points of the tried-and-tested concept include:

+ driving as freely as possible

+ without big luggage

+ with your own motorbike

+ on an escorted tour with support vehicle

Special feature of this tour:

On the South Africa – Namibia Tour 2024, a guide from Namibia will also accompany us on certain routes with his jeep. We are looking forward to the exchange.

Since the truck cannot drive all the routes, this second support vehicle gives us more security and flexibility on the tour.
