About us

After a journey of one year’s duration cycling through Africa, the diversity of the country lying at the tip of the African continent, viz. South Africa, remained unforgettable and deeply etched in our minds, Jens and Andreas, the co-founders of African Bikers CC in 1993. Since then, we have been privileged to be able to introduce guests personally to our new ”home” in Cape Town. We research all routes ourselves and update them regularly, taking the opinions of our tour guides and guests into consideration. We guide the majority of the tours ourselves and ensure that the quality of the routes and the standard of accommodation are constantly maintained. We personally travel around southern Africa in order to assess new routes and destinations for our programmes, if and when time is available to do so.
