    Letter of recommendation from Mr Hendrik von Kuenheim, General Director BMW Motorrad

    It is with great pleasure that I send this letter of commendation to Karoo Biking, one of BMW Motorrad’s official tourism partners. Rarely does a supplier’s business ethos dovetail with our own. Passion, innovation and excellence are hallmarks of great companies and often measurable by the repeat business they secure. In me, you have secured a customer for life. Thank you for the exemplary planning and work that went into making the seven day BMW Motorrad press tour through Namibia an unforgettable success.
    Sincerely

    Ubuntu Tour, 4,500km durch Südafrika
    Hallo Jurgen,
    die Motorrad SERVATIUS Truppe möchte sich herzlich bei Dir bedanken. Du hast uns mit der Ubuntu-Tour das Land Südafrika und vor allem seine wunderbaren Menschen nähergebracht. Kapstadt, Boulders, Kap der guten Hoffnung und Chapman`s Peak Drive waren ein toller Einstieg. Valley of Desolation, Drakensberge und Umrundung von Lesotho mit Stop in Bergville, Montusi Mountain Lodge eine Weiterführung der tollen Tour. Städte wie Ugie, Cala, Queenstown und Flagstaff wo das pralle, bunte afrikanische Leben dich in seinen Bann zieht sind weitere herrliche Bausteine dieser Tour. Über alle dem steht die Herzlichkeit und Lebensfreude der Menschen.
    Die "Geistervilla" Waylands Country House mit der wohl besten Küche der ohnehin top Bewirtungen und Unterkünfte war wahnsinn! Fotoshooting am kälsten Punkt Südafrika`s (da am weitesten vom Äqutor entfernt), Cape Agulhas ist in unsere Reise eingeflossen, ebenso wie viele Weine die wir verkostet haben auf Grund Deines guten Sachverstandes um diese köstlichkeiten.
    Fazit: Diese Reise ist nicht zu empfehlen für Menschen die gerne abnehmen möchten.
    Für ALLE Anderen gilt - macht Termin mit Karoo-Biking, packt die Koffer und erlebt Südafrika!!!
    Herzlichsten Dank Jurgen und bis zum nächsten mal sagt Dir Fred Servatius

    Hello Jurgen,
    Thanks again for organizing and leading an awesome West Coast motorcycle tour. My brother and I truly enjoyed every aspect of the journey. It is obvious all the hard work you have put into the business -- and it shows through passion and flawless execution. I look forward to another chance to go on a Karoo Biking tour in the near future. Further I would be happy to serve as a reference for those considering this excursion of a lifetime.

    Windhoek - Cape Town private Tour
    Jurgen,
    I want to especially thank you again for a great trip. I learned a great deal from you about the bike and the riding. One thing about biking is that you have a lot of time to reflect on your technique while you are riding. You did a fantastic job with the ride, the logistics, the lodging, the cuisine, the WINE, and general knowledge of the area. I will definitely see if I can send some US business your way (yes, you will have to suffer with the Americans if they come).
    Enjoy growing your business!! I look forward to seeing Karoo in all international markets in another 10 years time.
    Best regards

    Selfguided Tour South Africa and Namibia
    Hallo Jurgen,
    auch unsere zweite Reise mit Karoo-Biking, diesmal nicht mit dem Motorrad, sondern mit einem Allrad Pick-Up, war wieder ein voller Erfolg. Die Tour durch den Südwestteil von Südafrika und die Südhälfte von Namibia bot in den vier Wochen ein überaus breites Spektrum von Naturerlebnissen, historischen Plätzen, interessanten Begegnungen, außergewöhnlichen Unterkünften und kulinarischen Erlebnissen. Dank der sorgfältigen Reiseplanung durch Karoo-Biking hatten wir Vier auch ohne Führer keinerlei Probleme, uns selbst auf den teilweise entlegenen Pisten unserer 7.500-km-Rundreise zurechtzufinden. Egal, ob auf dem Bike oder im Geländewagen, Karoo Biking bietet außergewöhnliche Reiseerlebnisse.
    Beste Grüße aus Bonn.

    Dear friends bikers, do you dream of South Africa and Namibia ? Gravels roads, desert, wild animals and so many other wonderful sites are waiting for you.
    Thanks to Karoo biking, which provided us with a true and efficient organisation, turning our dream into reality, during the November Tour.
    Don't waste time to prepare the tour, Jurgen knows quite well all the best places, which you will enjoy to visit. The level of accomodations fulfil pretty well the needs of the most demanding bikers. It was really top of the class. Adding here and there some surprises secretely and well prepared by Jurgen. We brought back eternel memories from a group of friends, sharing the pleasure of african sun set aperitives, sun rise breakfast, and more surprising an unbelievable diner in the desert, under a wonderful starry sky.
    The strong professionalism of Jurgen and the tool box of Werner made us very confident in the Tour. (Nevertheless Jurgen could not achieved the conversion of the french group to the Shyraz red wine !! But with particular recovery efforts in the very last days)
    Thanks a lot to them both for the friendly spirit they have showed all along the Tour.
    For the future french candidates of this tour, I wanted to provide them with the here after comments from my french friends bikers, who took part of this wonderful adventure.

    Garden Route Tour
    The Garden Route Tour was the 4th organized tour my wife and I have been on and the 1st with your company.This was the best in a number of ways, the organization was the best I have seen so far - unique and 1st class accommodations and pretty much one gourmet meal after another.The Route was a terrific balance of tar and gravel roads with spectacular winding mountain passes, coastal 2 lane roads and pastoral rural towns which seemed to be from time gone by. This tour is a great introduction to South Africa as so many climate zones are visited and the roads are in such good condition. We were pleased that a low GS650 was available for my wife and my GS800 performed flawlessly, either of these bikes are excellent for this tour. This was the 1st time my wife and I rode on gravel and we found that we were up to the task, any competent road rider will be able to handle the gravel portions of this tour, and of course now we have enough experience for Namibia!
    Thanks for a great trip.

    Garden Route Tour
    The experience of the Karoo Garden Route tour, which I did in February 2010, was a real lifetime experience. Jurgen and the team delivered a perfect combination of enduro riding on gravel through rugged mountain passes, exciting high speed riding on sweeping sealed roads, unique high calibre accomodation and first rate dining. A truly unique, enjoyable and unreplicatable experience.
    Kind regards

    West Coast/Namibia Tour
    Hello Jurgen, Werner,
    We really enjoyed SA and we found the variations in scenery fascinating. The pictures that you took, Werner, were excellent and certainly bring out the atmosphere of the trip. Superb! As this was our third bike trip but the first time with a professional photographer I believe it works. Certainly it is also something to look forward to after the flat spot on returning home. Please keep up the good work.
    Jurgen, the trip itself for us did include a number of firsts – the longest ever off road and the longest distance covered in one day. The accommodation and planning were all excellent and perfectly timed. Your knowledge of the trip and of the places we visited made us fell more than just tourists. The selected routes catered for all levels of biking tastes and the bike themselves were a credit to the team that looks after them. Please pass on our thanks.
    Even though you couldn’t have too much influence on the weather, you still did a pretty good job…..! It is difficult to cater for all the different tastes and ideas that people have and I guess the more people on the trip the harder it gets. My philosophy in life is always to have a ‘Plan B’. I think that between us all on this trip we can up with a number of Plan B’s that in the end, did cater for everyone. After the trip and before we all went our different ways, everyone, and I mean everyone did say that they really enjoyed the trip – and that is what counts.
    We are considering our next trip and we quite like the sound of the CPT to Jo’burg trip – watch this space!
    Very best regards

    Hello Jurgen,
    It was an awesome trip. I loved every moment.Bikes where great, accommodation great and the general organisation of it all was faultless. A trip like we had with a group of good mates,and with some rugby to top it off, will be hard to beat.
    Thanks again for everything.

    Hello Jurgen,
    It has been five days since we returned to the states and we are still talking about the trip. Just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how much we appreciate all you did to help make our second visit to South Africa a wonderful trip. Just like the first time the bike was in excellent condition & performed perfectly. The accommodations were of high standards and the hosts at each location were wonderful. Each one was willing to go out of their way to insure that our stay & experience was a pleasant one. Just like our first visit, the scenery was fantastic, the roads were good & the people we meet were friendly and courteous. The fact that we had friends with us this time only enhanced the great experience. I can guarantee that we will return a third time and I would not consider working with anyone else.
    Many thanks to you & Donnie for all that you did.
    Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Selfguided Tour Cape Town and Garden Route
    The route planning, choice of accommodation and pre-ride briefing by Karoo Biking (Juergen) was very professional.
    We were taken care of from the moment we arrived at Cape Town Airport until we left South Africa. The route was scenic and interesting, the landscape varied and perfect for riding the BMW's through a range of terrains.
    While most riders only enjoy the endless sunshine of South Africa while visiting this exotic location, we rode into what was termed 'the worst storm front in 7 years with a cold snap from the Arctic'. The week before our arrival and after we departed the temperatures were perfect for riding a bike around the southern tip of the continent. We rode in rain, snow, hail and ice covered streets - definitely an experience despite the cold toes and just another reason to return and have a look at the country again in the future - with hopefully much more pleasant temperatures!
    Juergen, thank you for organizing a memorable trip.

    Cape Town - Johannesburg Tour
    In March of 2008, we went on the Cape Town to Johannesburg tour of South Africa with Karoo Biking and found that it was one of the best tours that we have been on. Each day was a new experience. We where able to see all the different parts of the country. The lodging was beautiful and unique and we went on some safaris both in a boat and land rovers. Each picture that we took was like a post card with beautiful scenery. The guides that we had were from the area and were able to give us some history with stories of the area. Knowing the area as well they did they were able to find some really nice places to eat lunch while on the road. The food was wonderful. We never had a bad meal. The only problem we had was that the 14 days went by too fast.

    Jurgen, I got your text, but couldn't reply. That's so funny that you know Johan. I LOVED riding around Joburg, it was so much fun!!! People drive really well there, not like here in North Carolina where everyone drives so slow it's as if they're moving backwards, and they freak out when I lanesplit. I look forward to returning to South Africa though, and will always rent from Karoo!

    Cape Town - Windhoek Tour
    This was my third guided motorcycle tour with Karoo-Biking and definitely the best of the lot. I experienced a travel package consisting of perfect organisation, breath-taking routes - adapted to all skills levels - and very unique and exclusive accommodation places.
    There were so many highlights in the course of this journey; Jurgen never failed to surprise us, his intricate knowledge of South Africa and Namibia, combined with awesome accommodation and fantastic culinary experiences made this a super trip. The other participants and fellow riders were just the cherry on top of the cake. We all had a splendid time.
    One might be the opinion, that these journeys don’t come cheap, I definitely say it was worth every penny spent.
    For my part, I am already planning the next tour with Karoo Biking, there are still so many places to see and roads to ride in Southern Arica.
    Jurgen, one of your spoilt customers is threatening you with another order. I know you gladly accept this challenge,
    I’ll see you next time.

  • February 2007
    Garden Route Tour
    Jurgen,
    After being back in the UK for over a week now, we still can't get the sights, sounds and smells of South Africa out of our heads. The tour exceeded our expectations in all ways. The accommodation and restaurants were obviously carefully chosen and always of high standard. The selection of locally produced food and wines each evening were something to look forward to at the end of a day's riding. And the riding was fantastic with a good mix of tarmac and gravel roads. The R1200GS performed wonderfully two-up and on the day when Donna opted to ride in the support vehicle into Die Hel the bike brought back memories of off road riding from earlier years. Speaking of the support vehicle, our driver Brendon was great and provided a wealth of knowledge on the local flora and fauna especially on Donna's trip into Die Hel. We had a great group of people on the tour from a variety of countries but what really made the tour special was our guide, Celia. She always had a great attitude and her local knowledge of the Klein Karoo gave us a special insight into the region. She seemed to be related to half the people in the region and knew the rest. Thanks for the great holiday and hope to see you again.
    Cheers,
    Gordon and Donna Miller

    'Karoo Biking certainly know how to organise and deliver a biking holiday experience of a lifetime in all aspects! We are looking forward to many more trips with Karoo. In fact we are already planning our next!
    ....'The itinerary was superb and varied - a good balance of travel, sight seeing, local culture, history and wild life, catering for my groups personal needs and tastes with impeccable attention to detail.
    Our route took us along quality, open, deserted roads and gravel tracks through gorges and mountain passes. We therefore had plenty of opportunity to enjoy adventurous biking with stunning views along our way.
    All accommodation was individual, tasteful, comfortable and hospitable, and all in beautiful settings - villages, towns, mountain game reserves and even alongside a traditional Zulu camp.
    Our meals, both in the guest houses and local restaurants selected for us, were of high quality only surpassed by the excellent SA wines we sampled along our journey and specially chosen by our personal tour guide who possessed detailed knowledge of the country's wine industry.
    This brings me onto our tour guide. Celia made our holiday, she was and is fantastic and if your party size affords it I would strongly recommend requesting a guide!'

  • Dave & Sabine Jones from Oxfordshire, England
  • September 2006
    Selfguided Tour Karoo, West Coast and Cedarberg
    What can we say..... our friends & family called us crazy: "You want to spend your honeymoon on motorcycles rather than on a sandy beach????"
    Guess what, it was the best decision we could've made! Jürgen's route planning for the two of us was simply ingenious, the choice of accommodation (we MUST mention Charles and his lovely house in Prince Albert!!!), the suggestions for scenic routes and ways to avoid the main roads - simply fantastic. Add to that the hospitality we found everywhere and the friendliness towards bikers (which you don't always get in Europe), amazing! Finally of course the story about Dave losing his wedding ring because he was being sick with a stomach bug and lost so much weight that the ring dropped off his finger and - because it was found by a room maid and returned to the landlord - finally made its long way to be reunited with the panicking groom in Cape Town before we flew back to old Blighty. The bikes (F650 Dakars) were our first choice and we loved riding them. So much that we're now considering swapping our Japanese bikes at home for them (once the wallets permit us to do so).
    We've definitely lost our hearts to South Africa, and we'll be back (once we get a chance in our jobs to get more than 2 weeks off!!)
    Anyone not sure whether to go for this kind of trip - for whatever reason - don't hesitate, it is actually feasible even for those who are not sooooo experienced riding on unsurfaced roads. Just take it easy and take in the beautiful countryside. (and don't forget the sundowner drinks and to imbibe on the lovely SA wines....)

  • September 2006
    West Coast Tour
    Hi Jurgen,
    Hope alls well with you. Just to say a huge thank you to Celia, you and your team for a quite unbelievable West Coast Tour in September. Some of the dust from my jacket has faded a bit but all the photos people keep sending means that memories are still strong! Im sure others on the trip have e-mailed similar thanks – we really got on so well and had a lot of fun. I can imagine that further trips between us may well happen!
    I think I was probably the most nervous participant initially - having only had my license for 3 years and being a woman travelling alone etc. The guys at Huijs Haarlem sorted me out though and quickly after meeting you and Celia and the others on the trip, I realised no need for nerves. Bikers are nice people! And we all continue to learn etc. I think my riding improved through the ten days - I calculated that I did more miles on the trip than I had done on a bike previously! Im still not that keen on windy mountain passes at any great speed - but there was never a problem to let others pass whilst I took in the views!
    It was a quite fantastic trip- some big miles for sure and the extent of gravel and off-tarmac riding took some people by surprise I know. I think having travelled in southern Africa before, I was less surprised by the distances and the condition of the roads were way better than many other countries in the region. Also, I think the fact that I had done a short course back home with BMW on off-road skills helped me. Travelling the distances, feeling the size of the country, being away from main roads and crossing into Namibia were keys to the trip for me. And then all those spring flowers through Namaqualand - quite amazing!
    I think we all wished we could stay longer in all the guesthouses we stopped in. The accommodation and hospitality (and the wine) were fabulous. I felt bad leaving trails of red dust in most of them! My favourite stops though were the ones along the road – taking shade wherever it was and having Wagner pull up with cold cokes. Celia seemed to have an unlimited supply of goodies in her tank bag as well!
    Definitely hope to be back soon. I had such a good time on all fronts that I cannot really imagine how to improve on a holiday. But Celia tells me that the Klein Karoo is even better...
    Many thanks and all best wishes,

    Jurgen,
    just returned to the states and wanted to thank you for the great South Africa experience. After that long flight, it was great to see Jurgen patiently waiting for me right outside customs. I did a solo trip over 3200 km through stunning coastline, arid mountains, breathtaking wine country with green valleys. I didn't know South Africa was so beautiful! Thanks also for the effort in setting up the route and accomodation which I found diverse and comfortable. The roads, the people, the food, it couldn't have been a better journey. Sorry for all the dirt on your brand new 650 Dakar which ran flawlessly. I wouldn't want to take any other bike down the isolated roads of "The Hell". Thanks again to all the fine folks at Karoo. I'll look forward to my next trip with you.

    Greetings Donoven & Jurgen,
    Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that we made it back to Florida with no problems. We are back in our regular routines.
    I wanted to thank the two of you for your effort in making our self guided tour of South Africa a great success. We found the BMW 650 GS to be the perfect bike for us on this ride. I was also very pleased to find that the motorcycle was maintained to the highest standards and performed flawlessly on our 3000 kilometer adventure. We also wanted to say that the prearranged B&B accommodations along with airport transportation were great. All we had to do was concentrate on the fantastic roads and marvelous scenery in your beautiful country. We could not have asked for a better place to ride or a better company to work with. I am sure that we will return to ride more in South Africa. Not only that, when our riding friends want to come to South Africa, we will be sending them to you.

    Dear Jurgen,
    I would like to send you a sincere word of thanks and praise from Germany. You conceptualised a 3200 km roundtrip of the choicest routes ensuring that the riders experienced the most diverse landscapes, places, road conditions and levels of riding difficulty. Your accommodation selection as well as the recommended restaurants, eateries and rest places were more than satisfactory. Also, I found your advice with motorcycle related topics as well as all our questions relating to daily life in South Africa downright enjoyable. To end with, I’ve made up my mind: When South Africa holiday, with absolute pleasure again Karoo Biking. With best regards,

    We were a little sceptical when we arrived at the airport as this was the test of the entire trip. We were relieved when we did have someone to pick us up, and Jurgen was not a con man on the internet. From then on, we were overly impressed with the whole event. Our drivers and transport were excellent, all accommodation was well above what we had expected and the tour, well, all we need is a bike, and we are happy.
    To sum up, we were completely impressed with the information that we received prior to the tour, the organisation of the tour, the ease of navigation of South Africa, the quality of our accommodation, the safety we felt while in the country, and the complete package of the event. Well done.
