Had an amazing adventure with Alpha and his team. We did four days and about 750km out to Lake Natron and back to Arusha. I only had my learners permit so was a steep learning curve but I managed it and the team looked after me well. I can now say I learned to ride in Tanzania!!
Lots of fun and in equal parts terrifying (for a newbie) and thrilling. Drew
Awesome Experience 2017

My wife and I spent 5 weeks in Tanzania in August 2017 and it was a last minute decision to go on a motorbike tour as we had a few days available at the end of our trip. So we booked a tour with Karanga Tours for my 55th birthday with both my wife and I to ride on separate bikes. Alpha made a huge effort to accommodate our needs by lowering the bike twice for Steph but as she wasn’t confident, she decided not to ride and instead take the 4 x 4. This was also a last minute decision, but it was no problem for Karanga to organise a 4 x 4 and guide on short notice. As we hadn’t planned on riding motorbikes, I’d brought none of my gear with me and they kitted me up with all the gear that I would use at home in Australia.
We left Arusha weaving our way through traffic to fuel up for the first day’s ride. We soon made our way from the bitumen onto undulating dirt tracks. My guide Alphi was very helpful and took me on the best tracks over the Monduli mountains and down into the rift valley. The bikes are old school XR 250’s, easy to ride but required running repairs along the way. This only added to the experience as it gave us some time to stop and chat and take in this part of remote Tanzania. We had time to deviate up mountain trails for views and get close up to wildlife. We caught up with Steph at Lake Natron as she travelled via Manyara National Park. While we both had different journeys, we were given a fantastic exposure to the best of Tanzania. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Karanga Adventure Tours if you want a great motorbike riding experience.

Had an awesome time with these people :) they know what they're doing when it comes to professionality in biking and also showing their customers a really good time. Truly recommended.

We had such a wonderful trip, enjoyed it very much and will never forget it.
Just great with all the animals and beautiful land we could see.
Riding was more challenging than our Kili Climb

This trip was a great challenge for us more than Climbing Kilimanjaro. It worth the price and time. Thanks.
