you'll love a trip with us

The bikes we own and operate are not the latest and greatest. We don't stay in 5-star accommodation.

But we can offer you an unforgettable adventure riding a motorcycle in Africa.

Whether you're riding easy on Cape Town's coastal roads, or kicking up clouds of dust on Namibian gravel roads under vast skies; you'll be forming friendships and living in a story you'll tell for the rest of your days.

Our Honda Africa Twin 750 bikes are comfortable and fun to ride, supremely reliable and more than capable of anything Africa can throw our way.

We'll listen to your needs and create a customised tour for you. We've been riding these roads in our backyard for years. We've discovered some amazing places and secret spots. We can't wait to share them with you.

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!
