African Motorcycle Safaris

Renedian Adventure Motorcycle Safaris

Why Africa? I have been fortunate enough to talk to many people about my travels and the one thing that continues to interest me is the depth of experience, money, time, and frankly, guts that many riders think is necessary to ride in a foreign country. Among overseas destinations, Africa consistently raises an eyebrow as a tricky place to be, doubly so on a motorcycle. At the risk of losing some cool points in the pub…

I can tell you that the benefits of riding in Africa – the endless empty roads, massive skies, crossing elephant footprints with your tire tracks, hearing lions at night, talking with new friends around campfires, spotting giraffes and zebra and buck from the road, the lack of fences…

All of this FAR outweighs the cost and worries of getting there and it is easier to get there than you may think.

About Renedian

The story of Renedian Adventures is a love story, conceived, built and nurtured and from the heart. It’s the progeny of a love between a man and a woman, a man and a continent, and a man and his love of adventure. When something this exceptional unites, it must be shared.

Three years into what would become a five-year round-the-world motorcycle trip, Rene Cormier arrived in Africa, intending to spend four months traveling the dark continent. Seventeen months later, he and his motorcycle crossed into the Middle East, but a large part of his heart remained behind. While in South Africa, he’d met Colette, his future wife, and Henk van Niekerk, a motorcycle tour operator who would become his business partner.

Now into their fifth year of creating raving clients, Renedian Adventures specializes in trips in southern Africa. We do not run tours That’s important because Africa, like few other places I have ridden motorcycles, relies on a system of ‘who you know’ to get things done. We think that riders who want to experience the ride of a lifetime in a land as mythical and wonderful as Africa is do not want to risk the organization folks who run one tour a year there.

Renedian Adventures’ tours get away from big cities right away. They travel in Namibia or the western side of Africa which is sparsely populated. The endless empty roads, massive skies, crossing elephant footprints with your tire tracks, hearing lions at night, talking with new friends around campfires, spotting giraffes and zebra and buck from the road, the lack of fences – all of this FAR outweighs the cost and worries of getting there and it is easier to get there than you may think.

People feel a connection to the place they’re in, especially through the gravel roads. They didn’t realize how safe it was, how empty some of the places are and how beautiful South Africa is. And seeing the animals up close is very special. The biggest risk travelers face, greater than malaria or pick pockets, is a motor vehicle accident.

Our professional and experienced people, with unique knowledge of the land and its ways create consistently outstanding experiences. Many people never knew they could do it by motorcycle. Most importantly, they want to get away from the logical unknowns about planning such a trip, which can chew up their time.

Spending time out of doors in Africa rekindles something in us that can only be described as correct and appropriate. We invite you to experience it for yourself. It’s easier than you think!

“I would like to warn you about taking a Renedian Tour: It will spoil you for other tours.

Rene balances the need for adventure and comfort in a way that will have you talking about this trip for years.

You get an authentic feel for South Africa and its beauty.

The only thing you give up is worrying about logistics, amenities, and planning – leave that to Rene and his team.

Your time is focused on taking in this wonderful part of the continent in the only way someone should see it… on two wheels.
