Dear Jurgen and Marchant,
Thank you very much for the professional prepared tour. Jurgen you did a top job working out the tour, lodges and nevertheless the excellent places for dining and wining. All of us were very impressed about the quality of this tour. Jurgen you are a perfectionist. Well done.
Marchant it was such a pleasure to meet you and listen to your extreme tour stories (USA, Kanada, La Paz ++++). Very impressive but not possible for us, for a south african warrior no problem. Wish you all the best for your next idea of crossing Russia. We had a lot of fun together, thank you.
You both together are an excellent team for Karoo Biking. Stay together and be successful for many years to come. I think there will be at least 1 more tour booking in some time by Michael. He is very keen going from Capetown to Windhoek. He had really to battle a bit going after the tour by GS now again on his R1150R. I can only start the season on 01.04.2015. Hopefully there will be nice weather around easter to meet the other guys.

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.

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.
Best regards

Cape Town – Windhoek Tour

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.
