Where to Go?
« on: June 12, 2009, 02:15:20 pm »
Hi guys.  New to the site, it looks brilliant with a wealth of info.  I'm flying to SA this November and will be staying for just under 3 months.  What I'm looking at is a suitable route to undertake on a dual purpose machine.  Would like to go to Mozambique, Botswana, Namibia etc.  If anyone has any suggested routes, camp sites etc etc I'd love to hear from you.  Also, I'll be looking to buy a used bike when I arrive (probably a KLR 650 - around 30K), so if anyone can recommend any good dealers etc I'd be really grateful too.  Cheers guys and well done on destroying our English cricket team yesterday!!

Cool you are going to enjoy it. Just remember that Dec Jan Feb is rainy season in some of the areas you wanna see and things change allot. Its alo shit hot arround that time. Browse arround the sight and have a look at the planning a ride section. There are quite a few guys planning.
Aslo look in ride reports for ideas or previous trips done..

Ill start
Victoria falls would be a good place to see. Just be aware that some National parks dont allow bikes in :o

You cannot miss Namibia, rainy season that time of the year but the north of Namibia is worse than the south...

Check out our ride report for some good camping sites and places to visit.

Nam, Mocambique etc are great in between the long boring bits, and are a huge hassle if you break down or crash. Stay local IMHO, see trail riders site http://trailriderreports.blogspot.com/
