great specials- so look out for some good discounts in January for "Early Bird" bikers 2018.


2016 highlights:

All in all 2016 was an amazing year- but these are a few of our personal highlights

In January we brought in the NEW year in style- from the top of Sani Pass in Lesotho. The whole Sama Family up there at 3000 metres toasting the new year at the highest pub in Africa. Lesotho has some of the best tar roads in Africa (We call it the African Alps) it is also a GS riders dream, with amazing gravel mountain passes and views that go on forever.

In March we welcomed Mick Matheson from Road Rider Australia on tour with us- he made an epic film about his trip – the 17 Day Best South African Roadtip ever – IT WAS A GREAT RIDE and he caught it all the adventure on camera - check out the video.  
In July we welcomed our first group onto the 32 Day Cape To Kilimanjaro tour. It was an epic ride taking in Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Malawi and Tanzania. It is a long journey but the crew handled it like champs and many magical memories were made.  
In August we did a return trip from Kilimanjaro to Cape Town via South Africa and Leostho. As with any "First Tour" there is always rooms for improvement- and so in 2017 these tours are going to be even better. We only have 2 Places left on the up tour and 4 places left on the down tour so book your place today.  
Meanwhile in July Sama Tours marketing team was half way round the world, in Germany attending the BMW Motorrad days, in the German Alps. For those of you that have never ridden in the Italian and German Alps – add it to your bucket list right now!! It may just be the best riding in the world, after South Africa of course! (no elephants in the alps!)  
Thank you Martin Shollberg for all the rally photos.  

From Germany we travelled to the USA and attended the BMW MOA Rally in Hamburg, New York. This even draws approximately 7000 BMW riders ever year and is always a fantastic event, celebrating everything BMW. We also got to ride some beautiful parts of Washington state and Texas, so all in all it was way too much fun to ever be called working trip.

In October and November, we welcomed two tours from the BMW Motorcycle club of Victoria, Australia. They are a HUGE motorcycle CLUB with over 700 members. They all had a great time. Most flew in early and spent 3 days at Victoria Falls before the tour and an extra 3 nights in Cape Town after the tour. Some even managed to fit in a Luxury Kruger Safari and a train journey from Cape Town back to Pretoria. We also had a group of 6 Riders that rode their motorcycle back up to Pretoria on a custom tour- taking in some of the best dirt roads South Africa and Lesotho have on offer.

Thank you Chris Renwick for all the great photos.  

We hope that 2017 will be just as good!




That's it for this year's newsletters!

Once again we want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a fantastic 2017!

We will see you back here next month- Until then- ride safe and ride often!
