“In the end we only regret the chances we didn’t take”

Let us help you make it happen

African Overlanders

Duncan, Eli and Chloe welcome you to African Overlanders. Eli is Spanish (and typically so!) she loves cooking, people and parties. She lived in Germany for 14 years and speaks fluent German. She also speaks very good French and English. Duncan is English and although I’m no linguist, I have traveled greatly through most continents. During my travels I rode motorbikes up and down the East and West coasts of Africa, and have always felt at home here. Last our Valentine’s Day daughter, Chloe, was born in 2011.

African Overlanders is based on my experiences of riding in Africa and aims to give the whole travelling community the facilities they require for a happy and healthy adventure. We are open to anyone who needs our facilities.

We are based 33kms from Cape Town, in Stellenbosch Farms just off the N1.

We aim  to always try to find a solution for any problem you have, and will work hard to achieve the best outcome for you. If you’re lucky enough not to have any problems – just look through our list of things to do, relax and enjoy your time with us!
