Garden Route Tour

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.

Attached a photo showing me on my bike.
Very best wishes to you

The tour was absolutely awesome. There was a great mix of scenery and conditions and the accommodation was top notch. Add to this a great bunch of fellow riders and guides and the overall experience was well above expectations. I would thoroughly recommend it.

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.

Garden Route Tour

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.

Selfguided Tour Cape Town and Garden Route

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.

“If you are going to visit South Africa, Karoo Biking is the only way to see the sites. The value of the time we spent was exponentially enhanced by the careful planning and experience of Karoo. Thanks for everything!”

Dear Jurgen,
we very much enjoyed the trip that you arranged for us. The accommodations were masterfully different from each other, yet all enjoyable.
The bikes ran flawlessly, and we enjoyed the scenery. You really gave us a nice combination of places to see and stay, and made the whole process as easy as it could have been.
Best regards,
