75 Day Motorcycle Tour Cairo Egypt To Capetown South Africa

Today, I wanted to talk to you about another great expedition, a 75 day motorcycle tour from Cairo, Egypt, to Capetown, South Africa. Surely, 2 great places well known by motorcycle enthusiasts for their great routes and sceneries, and I haven’t specifically mentioned the countries in between. To make this even more attractive, it’s Compass Expeditions who is organising this, thus, we can definitely put all our minds at rest that this will be another great experience to all those who decide to join!

I’m only going to go through some of the highlights of this tour but will surely be more than happy to send out any detailed info to all those who would be interested to join. To begin with, the countries being visited will be Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and finishing off with South Africa.

One will have the chance to visit some of the most important sites of that particular country they’re passing through, such as the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, the Karnak Temples, the Tombs of the Pharaoh, the Temples of Meroe, Khartoum, Simien mountains, the rock hewn churches of Lalibela, the 12th century ruins of Zimbabwe, etc … etc …. However, this expedition won’t take you only through historical sites but will also make you experience other things, like cultures, parks, etc .. During this expedition, one will even have the opportunity to spend an overnight with the Samburu tribes people, enjoy a 3 day safari visiting the Ngorongoro crater and the Serengeti National park, ride through Makumi National Park, experience the Maasai culture, camp at the famous snake park of Arusha, visit the victoria falls, enjoy a boat cruise on the Chobe river, etc … etc …

I can keep mentioning loads and loads of sites, attractions and experience but would like to leave you a bit with curiosity 🙂 Believe me, this tour is surely a must-do, always if you can afford it. Price isn’t cheap but the experience is thrilling!

  2. Been dreaming of doing this trip for years and have finally decided to do it in 2014. Slightly nervous doing it on my own. This could be the ideal scenario. More details please!!

  3. I wish to do half of this tour, I mean from Cairo to Dar es Salam, Tanzania but I am worried about crossing the borders. Are there conditions like your bike must be tour type only and no other types can cross the borders? And any documents needed? I am talking about Egyptian, Sudanese, Ethiopian, Kenyan and Tanzanian borders.

    Best regards

    • Hi Fares, depending on your nationality you will certainly need visas, most can be obtained at the border except the Sudan and Egypt but again this depends on your nationality. You will also need a Carnet de Passage en Douane (basically a passport for the bike).

      We will co-ordinate the above documents for our clients.

      Any type of bike can cross these borders and you don’t need to be part of a group but be aware when entering Egypt, its certainly possible and many people do it but my God they make it difficult.

  4. I was planning on making this trip together with my son in 2014. How is the political problems in Cairo going to effect these plans?

    • Hi Mauri

      Yes we are keeping a close eye on the situation in Cairo. If we can’t get into Egypt, which we don’t think that will happen, we can ship directly into the Port of Sudan and then ride to Capetown. Then it won’t be Cairo to Capetown but its better to be safe than sorry!
