Kaokoland, the remote north western region of Namibia is the premier tour for WildWood Motorcycle Tours.
It is without doubt the number one adventure motorcycle tour destination in Africa, if not the world! A vast continuously changing wilderness accessed by a limited network of tar roads, gravel tracks and sometimes only sandy river beds. The local Ovahimba tribe are the custodians of this land, maintaining their simple nomadic existence herding cattle and goats in the grasslands and mountains of this beautiful region. Namibia is one of least populated countries in the world , although no mater how remote the area you’re likely to find a welcoming face. Wild game are found throughout Kaokoland, and it is not unusual to travel amongst herds of the famous dessert elephant, giraffe as well as herds of large and small antelope , jackals, crocodile, hippo’s, and even cats like leopards, lynx and lion.
Kaokoland has all this as well as being a safe travel environment. The friendliness and welcoming feelings are palpable the moment you step off the plane, from both the local people (of which Namibia has 13 ethnic groups) and police and officials.
Our standard Kaokoland Odyssey Tour is eleven days from Windhoek and back to Windhoek, including a rest day at the german influenced coastal town of Swakopmund. We offer a mix of comfortable bed and bed accommodation, dessert resorts as well as at least four nights in tented camps in truly remote areas. Our support / backup 4×4 vehicle and trailer carry our kit, fuel and food as well as providing repair assistance for the bikes. We will gladly put together a bespoke tour for groups of between three and eight riders as well provide for family / friends wanting to accompany in a 4×4 vehicle. Alternative options of as few as eight days are available without losing the essence of the full tour. We can also put together easier routes for the bigger adventure bikes and less experienced riders, but this would have to be a group booking.
WildWood has a fleet of low milage KTM690R and Husqvarna 701 bikes available as rentals but will gladly transport your own bike to Windhoek from Cape Town, South Africa. Although we’ve had a few extremely competent riders join our tours on the larger ‘big twin’ adventure bikes we recommend the smaller more nimble steeds to enjoy the rough and sandy conditions. The standard Kaokoland Odyssey is for experienced riders ONLY , with some off-road and sand riding skills essential.
Dessert trails, river beds, magnificent dunes, open beaches, rich canyons and so much more. This is KAOKOLAND!
