Tankwa biking was founded in 2010 by Carl Metelerkamp who is certified and registered South African Adventure and Cultural Guide - Badge #WC9703.

To date we have successfully conducted over 70 adventure motorcycle tours in South Africa and Namibia. Our tours are designed to be affordable and are conducted primarily on many of the hard packed gravel roads in some of the most beautiful and desolate regions of Southern Africa.

Our focus as an adventure tour operator is to take care of your safety and comfort on our tours.

We have a fleet of 2008 Kawasaki KLR 650’s that are available for rental as part of an organised Tankwa Biking tour. Riders are also welcome to join our tours on their own Dual Sport Motorcycle or on a rental Motorcycle from another vendor.

Should you require accommodation in Cape Town before and or after we leave for a tour, we own Vlei Lofts B&B www.vleilofts.co.za a comfortable Bed and Breakfast establishment in Milnerton Ridge where we would be pleased to welcome you.
