Garden Route Tour

Hallo Juergen, dieses Foto bzw. Szene hat für mich Symbolcharakter. Zum ersten Mal Gravelroad, zum ersten Mal eine Wasserdurchfahrt für mich!! Deine Souveränität, dein pädagogisches Geschick und nicht zuletzt dein Beispiel haben mir sehr geholfen, solche „Adventures“ erfolgreich zu überstehen. Ich freue mich schon sehr auf unser Wiedersehen und auf die Motorradtour im Maerz 2013 von Cape Town nach Johannesburg.
Frohe Weihnachten und ein gutes,erfolgreiches Neues Jahr wünscht Dir

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.

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 Joburg trip – watch this space!
Very best regards

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

Custom Tour of Mpumalanga and Kwazulu-Natal

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.

West Coast/Namibia Tour

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.

Selfguided Tour Cape Town and Garden Route

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.

Windhoek – Cape Town private Tour

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.
