Ride the legendary Honda Africa Twin IN Africa

Over 120000 kilometers of African adventure riding …

“The Honda Africa Twins were everything a person could need to travel the rugged terrain.  I own a BMW F800GS, and was still blown away by the manoeuvrability of the AT and it’s ability to tackle a variety of conditions.  Andrew’s knowledge of the mechanical aspect of the bike and riding expertise provided a completely worry free traveling experience.”
