  • I decided at the last moment to join my son and cousin on an adventure motorcycle trip. My wife said ‘you’ll probably regret it if you don’t go’. She was right – I’m so glad I went. What a trip.
    South Africa totally exceeded my expectations. The beauty and varied geography of the country was fascinating. There were so many highlights, but perhaps the best was travelling the road into Gamkaskloof or the day we spent at Kruger National park, or perhaps the stay on the Wild Coast where the boys body-surfed with dolphins. I had heard that maybe South Africa wasn’t the safest travel destination, but my preconceived ideas were wrong. We never had any issues, everywhere we went the South African people were friendly, hospitable and interesting to talk to. It was an absolutely wonderful trip, and from Cape Town to our final destination in Johannesburg we felt we were treated just wonderfully by ‘Andrew and Drew’.
    Just an amazing lifetime adventure!
    This was a new route for our guide Andrew Vaughan (best guide ever) so every day was a new adventure for us and him. Andrew was absolutely great, from the knowledge of his country and history of each place we visited, giving us the little travel tips we needed, making sure he never lost us. And when we ran into some unexpected surprises, he just calmly solved it. I was very impressed. It was a great ride and very reasonably priced. Thanks so much to Andrew and Drew and everyone else that made our trip so memorable.

  • A motorbike tour in Southern Africa wasn’t on my list of priorities, but when invited by a friend to join him on a Cape to Kalahari tour I decided to give it a go. It turned out to be a very memorable experience, which has left me with the burning desire to see more of Africa. So much so that I’ll be joining Andrew again in June 2018, on his Great Rift Valley northern tour. If you’re after comfort and luxury this isn’t for you, the days are long, the accommodation is a mix of camping and shared rooms, and the bikes aren’t the latest and greatest. However, if you want adventure, mateship and a real sense of achievement; just do it! The bikes are classics, strong, and well maintained. The food is sensational, whether it be at restaurants or by the campfire. Andrew is the perfect tour leader, cool, calm and very knowledgeable about the country and things in general. Thanks Andrew, Drew and the team, looking forward to doing it again in 2018.

  • A grand tour of beautiful landscapes, exotic animals, and great roads. Andrew took into account our group’s preferences when route planning and we had a great variety of accommodations, but uniformly great experiences. There’s an expression that Africa gets “under your skin and into your blood” and I can’t wait to go back for another two-wheeled adventure with Andrew and Ride Down South.
