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.

In this unique motorcycle tour you will visit one of the wildest and largest national park of the whole Africa, Kafue National Park in Zambia where we will conduct Game drives on board of our specially modified 4×4 support vehicles.

Nights are spent camping in the National Park (Camping will be done in appropriate areas with ablution blocks and warm showers) while all meals are prepared by the accompanying chef. In Lusaka we will be lodging in a good level accommodation.

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.
The tour starts and ends in Lusaka.

Day 1: Lusaka

Upon arrival at Lusaka international airport, you will be assisted in final preparations (local SIM card, forex, etc.) before your Safari starts. Transfer to a good level lodge. Check-in and delivery of the motorcycles. Time available for relaxing. Dinner not included.

It’s important to pay attention both to the road (Gravel and corrugated, usually quite negotiable, but with some tricky stretches) and to the potentially harmful wild animals that we can encounter along the way! We will reach Kasabushi in the late morning and set-up camp in a fully equipped area with hot showers and toilets. Lunch in camp and afternoon sunset cruise among the rapids of the Kafue river.
