It's been a dream of mine to go and ride a motorbike in Africa, so when I got invited to go with three motorcycling-mad Italians and a Brit, I jumped at the chance to join them. We all met up in Johannesburg, South Africa, hired some BMWs, donned the Durban Alpinestars adventure gear and headed out, our plan was to ride to Zimbabwe, then into Mozambique and then head down to the Kruger National Park in South Africa where the trip would end.

It was some trip as stormy weather welcomed us in Johannesburg, bribes at the Zimbabwe boarder control as well as constantly dodging wild animals that wandered in the pothole infested roads where just a few of the incidents we incurred along the way, but the locals were super friendly and the scenery amazing which made the whole adventure just bloody brilliant from start to finish.
