What People Are Saying
When I booked this motorcycle trip I wanted the trip of a lifetime...
I got it and then some. Wow. What an experience! Andrew and Greg aren't just great guides, they're also just really great people -- a joy to ride with and also a joy to hang out with. They ran my 22 day tour without a hitch and made sure we stopped at all the best secret spots. And the bikes we rode for absolutely perfect for the trip. Africa Twin! I'm a fan for life.

We had considered navigating the trip ourselves...
... but we would have missed out on so many personal insights, hidden gems and juicy tit-bits of local folklore. An unforgettable four days of biking through breathtakingly beautiful scenery and daily excursions which left us wishing that we’d booked double the time. Read more ...

If you're after adventure, mateship and a real sense of achievement ...
... I'd highly recommend a trip with Ride Down South. As a long time tour organiser and operator, this was actually the first time I’ve ever gone on a tour as a customer and you far exceeded my expectations. It wasn’t just the riding or the bikes, it was the whole package, the choices of accommodation, the great meals but above all the enthusiasm and willingness to go that extra mile (or 100 km) that shone through in you and your team.
OWEN HOLCOMBE // Cambodia
I can't imagine going with anyone else on a trip like we did...
Thank you Andrew for an amazing experience. You listened to our needs and crafted a tour to suit our group of 4 west coast Canadians and 1 American. You gave great leadership and service all the way. Ending the tour in Victoria Falls was a perfect finale to an amazing trip, on which, we saw and experienced so much. Read more ...

Your Tour Guide
All our rides are led by our lead guide and company owner Andrew Vaughan. Andrew is a qualified adventure tour guide licensed in South Africa and has about 200000 km of motorcycle guiding experience over the last 12 years. Andrew is a qualified mechanical and materials engineer and has been riding adventure motorcycles since 2007 when he and friend rebuilt two Kawasaki KLR650's and then rode them from Vancouver to Cape Town via Siberia, the Middle East and Africa.
Our fully owned and lovingly cared-for fleet of Honda Africa Twin CRF1000 and XRV 750 motorcycles are built to handle the African roads we ride with ease
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 maneuverability 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."
