Rent a late model KTM 690R or Husqvarna 701 motorcycle from WildWood Motorcycle Tours South Africa and experience the ride vacation of a lifetime.

“Ride the adventure”..


I was fortunate enough to be one of a group of kiwi riders to ride the Kaokoland Odessey in Northern Namibia. It was the best thing I have ever done, and I have riden and raced dirt bikes for 40yrs. To go to places I have only ever seen the likes of in National Geographic publications, was a real privilege. The people were friendly, the wildlife was fantastic, and so much better because they lived in the wild and not in a park. The camp sites and lodges were amazing! The bikes were in new condition and great fun to ride. Being able to ride in this wonderful country without the restrictions of carrying all the usual necessities associated with camping and the like, was an added bonus. John was a great guide, he was a skilled rider, knew how to handle people in authority, and had a decent knowledge of the land and its inhabitants. I’ll never forget my time in Namibia.
If you have ever contemplated riding the Kaokoland Odyssey…….do it now!
