We've made some good friends on our two-wheeled African adventures. Read what they have to say here or click on the Tripadvisor link to see our reviews there.
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.
I just rode from Victoria Falls to Cape Town with Ride Down South and couldn't be happier. 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. When I booked this motorcycle trip I wanted the trip of a lifetime. I got it and then some. Wow. What an experience!

Thank you Andrew for an amazing experience.
I can't imagine going with anyone else on a trip like we did.
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.
The African people were truly amazing with their friendly and helpful manner, it is an easy place to feel safe and comfortable in.
Ending the tour in Victoria Falls was a perfect finale to an amazing trip, on which, we saw and experienced so much. My skills and confidence grew and I am a much better rider now, than when I started.
Thank you Andrew for the great job and I will refer others to you without hesitation. I hope to get back to Africa to ride a few dirt roads with you again. Truly, Brian.

Recently, a brief telephone conversation resulted in an unforgettable four days of biking through breath-takingly beautiful scenery and daily excursions which left us wishing that we’d booked double the time. We had considered navigating the trip ourselves and are so glad we didn’t. We would have missed out on so many personal insights, hidden gems and juicy tit-bits of local folklore.
Andrew custom-built our trip to suit our timeframe, riding and sight-seeing preferences, bending over backwards in ensuring our every expectation was met. We asked for a “mixed bag” regarding the ride itself and were certainly not disappointed! We were awe-struck by the scenic routes; delighted by the comfort and quaintness of the hand-picked accommodations and thoroughly enjoyed Andrew’s professional, yet personable guidance through landscapes clearly dear to his heart. We cannot speak more highly of him as a knowledgeable, experienced guide and gracious host. In saying good-bye, we felt a little bereft and are already eagerly planning our next trip.
