This tour will make you live a wonderful motorcycle experience in Zambia, unique and unforgettable, in a Country that is still barely touched by international tourism. A trail that combines the joy of a motorcycle tour and the emotions of game viewing in Zambian national parks.

Part of this unique motorcycle tour involves some of the most iconic landmarks of Zambia, along breath-taking roads, discovering characteristic villages, natural beauties (Victoria Falls) and some of the most fascinating National Parks in the region:  Lower Zambezi National Park, Mosi-o-Tunya National Park and Chobe National Park in Botswana where we will conduct Game drives on board of our specially modified 4×4 support vehicles.
The tour includes Game drives, boat and canoeing safaris in Lower Zambezi National Park, Game Drives i Chobe National Park and WalkingSafari in Mosi-o-Tunya National Park as well as a visit of the Victoria Falls, one of the 7 natural wonders of the world.
Nights are spent camping in both Lower Zambezi and Chobe (Camping will be done in appropriate areas with ablution blocks and warm showers) while all meals are prepared by the accompanying chef. Both in Livingstone, Lusaka and Kariba we will be lodging in good level accommodations.

Motorcycles and assistance included in the organization:

We will be using our “Big five” motorcycles, reliable Honda Transalp 600cc completely refurbished and properly equipped for on- and off-road stretches.
The group will be led by a motorcycle-riding professional guide and will be followed by a 4×4 support vehicle that will offer assistance, carry all luggage and camping gear, as well as motorcycle passengers who might decide to “take it easy” for a day or two.
