7 Reasons to use a LOCAL
motorcycle tour operator:

In South Africa we have a saying that goes: Local is Lekker! (Lekker meaning… Awesome!)
So Local is AWESOME.

Here are 7 reasons why using a small local company is better than using a large international motorcycle touring corporation:

  1. Knowledge from the ground up
    As a local company we are based in South Africa 24/7 we can monitor the local environment, local politics and local weather conditions.

  2. Small companies care
    Smaller operators only have 100-200 clients travelling with them every year.(Compared to the bigger corporations that may have 1000’S of clients coming through their doors every month) This means that you will get the personalized attention you deserve.

  3. Local guides understand the local cultures.
    They are proficient  in the local  lingo and can guide you in tipping, local customs and appropriate behavior.
  4. Network of Safety.
    Being based permanently in one region means having an extensive network of friends and connections.

  5. You save money
    Local operators don’t need to pay any middle men- saving you money.

  6. Be part of responsible tourism practice
    Local companies put money into the local economy. Your money filters through to the local communities and creates jobs.

  7. No Internet Research here
    Being local means that we have personally chosen and assessed all accommodation, activities and  tour operators that we use on tours
