Through us you will participate in a unique trip full of exceptional diversity; that affords you a singular opportunity to discover some of Africa’s last ancestral ethnic groups, as well as the last wild animals of the planet.
This trip really does set the standard for adventure riding. It is a total off road experience where you cut through the middle of Africa. Past tribesmen with spears you... read more thought no longer existed. Past herds of giraffe, zebra, impala, ostrich, all in completely natural unscripted settings….. Contrary to news reports it is all completely safe (except the hippo's ). And, due to the news reports, you will have the place completely to yourself. Go ! Now ! Before the tourist hordes find the place !
Having arrived in Kenya in the hope of purchasing a motorbike it quickly became apparent this was touching on the fantasy side of life. A number of deals fell through... read more and I was frustrated and unnerved. I did not want to do a tour thinking it too organised/restrictive or skill levels too mismatched. My off road experience was limited to a couple of training camps a short trip in Asia which had been some years previous.
I touched base with Fredlink Adventure Safaris and Fred was quick to respond and helpful to the last. I told the guys what I was looking for, 5 days from Nairobi to Mombassa and it was important I saw and felt the real Kenya.
Alex met me some days later in Nairobi and he was wonderful companion throughout. It felt like hanging out with a mate and he was happy to off road adrenaline style or simply take in the sights and trot along, whatever suited my mood. That was a huge benefit.
If wild Elephants grazing by your tent and real life 'zebra crossing' doesn't take your fancy then perhaps the great lodges, wild Giraffes cutting you off or endless wildlife of every variety, be it Hippo, warthog, crocodile or chameleons (that do change colour trying to cross the road) will simply put - turn you into a Peter Pan.
What Mecca is to Muslims, Star Trek to geeks, cricket to Ozzies and Guinness to the Irish, this is the ultimate biking adventure but with a safety net in the form of Alex.
Without question Alex was an integral factor of the tour for me. Fantastic company throughout it would not have been what it was without him. His English perfect, a local Kenyan from Mombasa, he helped me with my irritating questions about wildlife, culture and off road skills.
Fear not - the office will never be further from your mind.
