Your Guide

Ride Down South is owned and operated by Andrew Vaughan. Andrew is a qualified Mechanical Engineer and Adventure Motorcycle Guide. Andrew's engineering experience includes a stint working on the design of turbofan engines for Airbus and Boeing airliners at UK-based Rolls Royce Plc. Back in his home town of Cape Town, Andrew has over ten years experience in leading adventure motorcycle tours in Southern Africa and as far north as Rwanda.

In 2007 Andrew and a friend took their Kawasaki KLR 650's on a three-month, 30000km ride from Vancouver, Canada to Cape Town via Russia, Eastern Europe and Africa.

Andrew owns all the motorcycles in the Ride Down South fleet, having rebuilt 10 Honda Africa Twin XRV 750 motorcycles and a Suzuki V Strom 650.

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.”  Peter Seiler, Vancouver
