Ride Down South is an adventure motorcycle tour operator based in Cape Town. We offer epic, affordable guided motorcycle tours ranging from 1-day tours of the Cape Peninsula to 4-week adventures around Southern and Eastern Africa.

Our routes are flexible and based on 10 years experience of adventure touring in Africa. Whether it’s challenging gravel or easy tar roads, big game safaris, spectacular African scenery or unique cultural experiences, our routes provide a diverse African experience.

Our fleet of Honda Africa Twin XRV750 motorcycles allows us to provide our guests with a reliable, comfortable and very capable machine as part of an affordable tour package.

Andrew Vaughan, the owner and lead guide is a qualified Mechanical Engineer and Adventure Motorcycle and Tourist Guide registered with the Western Cape Department of Economic Development and Tourism. Andrew has over ten years experience in leading adventure motorcycle tours around Southern Africa. His first epic adventure was a three-month, 30000km ride in 2007 from Vancouver, Canada to Cape Town via Russia, Eastern Europe and Africa.

For us it’s the people we meet on the way that really makes the journey. Being in right relationship with our guests, the people we encounter, and the environment we travel through is important to us. We love to take time to hear the stories of the local people, maybe share some of our own, and do things in a way that respects and protects their home and livelihoods.

Ride Down South offers guided adventure motorcycle tours. Our flexible routes range from 1-day tours of the Cape Peninsula to multi-day tours of the Western and Northern Cape Provinces. We also operate longer 2+ week tours around South and Southern Africa. We are happy to tailor a trip to suit our guests' time and cost budget.
