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.
For me off-road motorcycle trips are the best and the only proper way to travel, as it allows one to get to places very remote and hard to be reached... read more by other transport and gives one a chance to be not a tourist, but rather an explorer. And the trip to the Northern Kenya organized by Fred felt like a real expedition into the heart of the country. This journey away from civilization and usual tourist trails turned out to be a great adventure, with all the possible risks contained and managed well by Fred. I did a few similar off-road trips in other countries, but this one was the first one extremely well organized, with a support vehicle and a crew of mechanic, cook and doctor following us through the hard terrain and making the experience easier and safer. The roads (or sometimes complete non-existence of such) were a real challenge and required a lot of hard work and concentration, this - as well as Fred's tips - allowed me to upgrade my riding skills considerably. The scenery was beautiful and diverse ranging from savannah to mountains to green valleys to big lakes to very arid deserts. We saw quite a lot of wildlife including zebras, giraffes, ostriches, baboons and many other. But the best part of all was seeing and interacting with local tribes - Turkana and Samburu - who seem to live how their ancestors lived hundred of years ago. The feel was very surreal, like being in a National Geographic or Discovery channel movie. We also had a chance to be socially responsible travellers and help some of the schools and kindergardens with stationery and donations. I will certainly come and do it again - to see other parts of Kenya as well as neighboring countries - as once you try it, you will never get enough.

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.
