Our Fleet

We love the Honda Africa Twin XRV 750. These classic motorcycles are strong, comfortable, easy to maintain and capable of pretty much anything African roads can throw our way. Our guests who ride them leave as fans.

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.

The Africa Twin – what a bike – a joy to ride whatever you throw at it.

The bikes we rode for absolutely perfect for the trip. Africa Twin! I'm a fan for life.
