    Still sorting through images and wrapping my mind around the experience.

    Amazing places, more amazing people, more to come…

    Interesting cuz' the wife is there now with her parents on photo safari. I always wondered about ADV in big game country. Guides always told me 'no motorcycles', then they offered horseback tours, mountain bike tours etc. Great place for some back road travel. Safety might be an issue on occasion.

    Gracias… the 1150 GSA was a blast to ride through Africa.

    We had each generation of BMW adventure on the trip… 1150, 1200, plus new 1200 water boxer Adventure…

    Hi Inte, my wife and I are planning a 2-up 1 month trip to Bots-Zam-Zimb in April 2017 and would like to know more about your trip. Were you threatened by big game at any point? Were the park rangers letting you into the parks? Did you post a GPS map of your trip and would you entertain questions about the road conditions? Thanks and best wishes.

    Looks like you guys will cover all the bases!
