Trip Start: Aug 02 2013 - Trip End: Jan 11 2015

I guess I just love adventure, I am a free spirit, I need challenges, I love the African landscape, people and culture. I love the sun, the dust, the effort needed to accomplish a long travel. I love the trip planning, the navigation, the preparation of an emergency response plan, the off road driving… I love the wild animals, the feeling of autonomy and independence… I just feel attracted by this extraordinary continent! That should be enough as an answer!

Because of my job I have found myself working in Africa several times and it is during my stay in Nigeria that I have developed my passion for African travels. I started organizing a travels to Namibia… followed by Ethiopia… then Uganda … then Mozambique. Till now always by 4×4. Now it is time to change as I have rediscovered my old passion for motorbikes. Yes, when I was a teenager I used to be one of those folks that woke up at 4 a.m. to watch the Paris-Dakar… I have always desired to participate to a rally but I never had the money before or the time after… Surfing in internet I have discovered this fantastic adventures of overland travels and immediately I realize that it was exactly what I was going to do! An Africa Overland trip on motorbike!
