Day7 - Leg1 - Bots+Zim - Home run

Sunday morning early and it was finally time to get up and do the long ride back to Joburg. We also still had to make it through the Beit Bridge border post. We said our goodbye's to those that were left and headed off into the sunrise. Fortunately the border crossing was as smooth as it gets in Africa, relatively quick and uneventful, the perfect combination.

The trip home was a bit of a mad rush, a bit like horses bolting for home, but two of us slowed it down a little to savor the last few hours of the ride. the whole trip had been one extremely brilliant seven days, but fun filled and full of laughter. What more could you ask for? And of course we all had some new mates for life.

This is the daily blog from, in particular a short series on the Botswana and Zimbabwe - Giraffe Motorbike tour we attended during July 2011. Check out the original plans and route for the trip here.
More South and Southern African motor cycle tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.

Seems like we only just got to sleep now up again

Everyone warming up and getting ready to go

Final goodbyes to all the Bulawayo crowd - a good laugh they had been!

First petrol stop in SA and some breakfast

The bike needed a real good clean once home, chemicals from dips, dust etc.

Stopped for a rest

Just a long road home
