Motorcycle News December 2016

Dear Bikers around the world

Happy Holiday's from the whole team at Sama Tours South Africa

We just finished our last 17 day tour in Cape Town last week. It was a great group of people from all over the world- Scotland, Canada, Australia and Germany. This brings our busy season to a close! We have had back-to-back fully booked tours since August this year, so it will be a welcome rest to relax, service the bikes and of course plan some more amazing Motorcycle Adventures for 2016.

In our news this month:

Small Changes
Cape To Kilimanjaro Tours

Please note that the 32 Day Cape to Kilimanjaro now ends in Arusha, Tanzania instead of Nairobi, Kenya. This means that instead of flying out of Nairobi, we will fly out of the Kilimanjaro International Airport in Arusha.

This change was made for logistical reasons- it doesn’t make sense to go all the way into Kenya, get another visa and battle rush hour traffic just to fly out from the Nairobi airport.
The Change also affects the 35 Day Kilimanjaro to Cape Town Tour, The 24 day Johannesburg to Kilimanjaro tour and the 23 Day Kilimanjaro to Johannesburg Tour.

More Wildlife included
We have also added the South Luangwa National Park in Zambia to all 4 Kilimanjaro tours. This national park is a world-famous safari destination and offers some of the best guides in Africa! The area is known as the birth-place of walking safaris and is one of few parks in Africa that allow night safaris.

Add on the Serengeti and the Great Migration
to your Itinerary

All our Kilimanjaro Tours include a 3 Day Safari in Tanzania as standard, but if you would like to stay on a few more days and enjoy watching the great migration than we can book this for you.

Haven't booked yet? What are you waiting for??
All the places are getting booked out pretty quickly. The Kilimanjaro tours are a great experience. No other motorcycle tour company in the world offers this exciting route that takes you up along Lake Malawi, through the highlands of Tanzania to the foothill of Kilimanjaro – The Highest Mountain in Africa.

Still Place on the 22 Day Victoria Falls Tour- Christmas Specials

We still have a few places left on our Victoria Falls Tour from the 08-30 April 2016 AND this Christmas we are offering 10% discount off the advertised tour pricing, plus, if you book before Christmas day we will throw in a free Helicopter flight over the falls.
They call this “The Flight of Angels” because when David Livingstone first gazed upon the falls he used the following words: ” A site so lovely that it must have been gazed upon by an angel in flight!”

The Victoria Falls Tour is one of our most Iconic tour offerings. This tour focuses on riding the wild roads of Botswana and vast expanses of desert in Namibia

So you ride but your partner doesn’t?
Book her in the bus!

 We meet a lot of bikers at motorcycle events all over the world, and many of them tell us that the only thing stopping them from booking a tour to South Africa is that THEIR PARTNER DOES NOT RIDE. They are normally pretty surprised when we tell them that we actually have reserved spots in our air-conditioned backup vehicle specifically for non-riding passengers who would like to join the tour, but don’t fancy riding. Normal Pillions who get tired of riding all day long are also more than welcome to ride in the back up vehicle as much as they like.

IN 2016 we have a group of bikers from the BMW Motorcycle Riders Club of Victoria who are coming on tour with us. Many of them have partners that don’t ride and so we have organized a special “Ladies Bus” just for them. The Ladies bus is going to be a lot of fun! The Ladies will have their very own guide who will take them all over South Africa.  This option is available to all groups of friends or motorcycle clubs that come on tour with us (Subject to minimum numbers)
