Can anyone go on these trips?
As we stated on the About You page: We have no age limits. You need to have a driver’s license. You need to be in decent physical shape. We do not spend long days in the saddle but we are riding scooters and at times camping in the bush.
You don’t need to be training for a triathlon and you certainly don’t need to be an expert motorcyclist, but you need to be in decent physical shape with some motorbike/scooter/moped experience.
Most importantly, you need to be someone that is patient, open to discovery and willing to respect the people and cultures we will come across.
Do I have to return to Dakar at the end of the trip?
Not at all. If you want to continue your travels in West Africa from Ziguinchor or Bissau, feel free. Our trips include round-trip transportation back to Dakar, but if it is more convenient for your travel situation to jump off elsewhere, simply let us know before the trip.
Can I join a trip after it has already started?
If you already find yourself in this region of West Africa, and you want to join a trip after it has already started, we may be able to accommodate you if we have a spot available. This will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
Is it possible to store luggage in Dakar?
Yes, we have a secure location where you can store luggage in Dakar. You will have roughly 35 liters of storage with the saddlebags that we provide with the bikes. If you want to wear a small, light backpack, you could do that as well.
