Rental

No guided tours but I have rented motorcycles two years in a row from UpSouth Adventures and found them to be very professional, polite, trustworthy and flexible. Will rent again.

It's been a great vacation on two wheels, thanks to Werner and Marcio taking care of everything and helping where they could. Visiting awesome places all around that 4000km of gravel and tarmac. It's been a real pleasure meeting you and having you guiding us also going the extra mile. Big thank you and very appreciated! Best Regards, Mauricio

From the moment I contacted Werner he was professional,informative and made everything easy for us. We rented a bike from him for a weeks self guided trip around Cape Town and he organised everything for us. An absolute pleasure to deal with these guys, we will be back.

Great experience, great team - from nice tar to wide gravel, narrow dirt tracks and tricky water crossings - we saw it all. Always a little special touch for the accommodations never the dull standard hotel. Wonderfully planned and organized. Together with Explore360degrees and the group from Sweden, Iceland and Germany we had an awesome experience. We'll be back ;)... More
