As a country known for its vast moon-like landscapes, incredible sand dunes with free roaming wildlife and a host of beautiful local cultures, Namibia gives travellers the opportunity to completely disconnect from the outside world and take in all the fresh air and incredible sunsets they can handle.
Our motorcycle tours in Namibia aim to give guests more than a just spectacular riding experience and in a country with quite so many unique sights and sounds, these trips are sure to impress.
We traverse the country along the less-traveled roads, showing guests the hidden gems. Remote and breathtakingly beautiful accommodation, luxury camping under the stars, visits to authentic Himba and Herero villages living far from the beaten track, local cuisine prepared in the traditional way and some of the most unforgettable and untouched natural beauty on earth... Namibia has all the ingredients for an exceptional motorcycle adventure like no other!
This is adventure bike heaven and our Namibian motorcycle tours will show you why!
Whether you prefer riding big adventure bikes such as the BMW R1250 GS, performance enduro machines like the KTM 450 EXC or the smaller adventure bikes like the Royal Enfield Himalayan… if you’re looking for an incredible ‘off-the-beaten-track’ motorcycle holiday in some of the most stunning & interesting countries on the planet, you’re in the right place. Simply get in touch with us to discuss your preferred motorcycle tour and we’ll take care of the rest, ensuring you have a life changing experience, whichever tour you choose!
We at Ride Expeditions have a passion for doing things right, a passion for motorcycles and a passion for adventure travel. Our tagline - 'The World's Greatest Motorcycle Adventures' - is our mission. It's what we strive to be. It's what we want our riders to experience. We understand the ingredients that make an adventure... it's not only about the bike; it's not only about the routes; it's not only about the destinations. It's a combination of every element of your motorcycle holiday and we pay attention to every detail from start to finish...
Namibia is a country ideally suited to middle and heavyweight adventure bikes, depending on the routes you choose to ride. Pencil straight tar roads or winding gravel tracks through the mountains, easy cruising or rocky jeep tracks & sandy riverbeds… Namibia has it all and we aim to offer a motorcycle tour for all types of riders in this fantastic country!
The best time for a Namibian motorcycle tour is during the dry season between May & September. These are the “winter months” and the temperatures are moderate, averaging 20-25°c.
The Namibian summer runs from November to April. These months can get extremely hot and chances of rainfall are higher. The rainfall doesn’t just mean you get wet… many rivers will flood and limit your route options!
If you’re looking to break away from it all for a while, a motorcycle tour across Namibia might be exactly what you need. If you want some space to clear your head, to take in a breath of fresh air and experience some incredible riding along the way – Namibia is waiting for you! These landscapes are what adventure bikes are made for.
With such an array of African wildlife and very few fences, you can expect to see almost anything crossing the road in front of you. From elephants to warthogs, zebra to giraffe – keep your eyes peeled and you’ll spot something! Unlike seeing animals at the zoo you get quite a rewarding feeling from spotting amazing wildlife in the middle of nowhere, all from the seat of your motorcycle.
From beach front villas on the Skeleton Coast to luxurious safari tents in the middle of nowhere, Namibia has some truly spectacular accommodation options. Even the simple camping set ups will blow you away – camping under a million stars with nothing and no one nearby in 100% silence is an incredible experience that just feels so special in Namibia.
Where our motorcycle tours venture further north in Namibia, closer to the Angola border, we’ll start to encounter the ‘Himba’ and ‘Herero’ tribes. The topless Himba ladies wash with smoke (yes, smoke!) and their hair is matted into rows with clay. In contrast, the Herero ladies wear large full length dresses and shoulder width hats. It’s not everyday you get to meet such hardy & resourceful folk and it’s always an extremely interesting, memorable experience!
The landscapes here are BIG and the feeling you get riding a motorcycle thousands of miles across such an empty country is quite surreal. Surrounded by such endless beauty hour after hour, day after day – a motorcycle tour in Namibia is a unique experience and not one to be missed!
