  Calendar Tours      

THIS year we have 1 tour less and we have changed the calendar tour schedule for the Lake Victoria Big 5 Tour. The Sheik's tour is an itinerary which has already proven to be a success amongst our custom made tour clients. Great off-road riding in a seldomly visited part of the country: the southeast and the Bale Mountains. The re-entry has been made by our Ultimate Tour riding through the Danakil Depression and the Simien Mountains.

The Lake Victoria Big 5 Motorcycle Round trip Tour this year will take place in - September 2017 and the Black Elephant tour has been cancelled for this year.. The remaining 2 calendar tours are already established itineraries in our calendar: the wild and ethnic tour and the historical route. Together they will take you through the most well known historical places in Ethiopia and the most well known tribes.

If none of these tours is what you are looking for just get in touch with us for a custom made tour and we will send you a personal itinerary and quote based on your requirements. We have many more itineraries available for all skill levels from novice to expert riders and if we haven't done it yet we will design it and test it just for you! Check our custom made tours page often as we will sometimes post booked trips which you may join.
