Desert Tour

Desert Tour


DESERT TOUR, 7 day arrangement with 5 days off-road riding.

This tour is highly recommended for enduro bikers who love desert riding. You will be respectfully provided a KTM 450 EXC off-road bike, excellent tool for this kind of work. Guiding is done by GPS on the handle bars, one GPS per 2 bikes. A detailed track on the GPS screen shows you exactly where to go. You’ll ride an average of 150 km’s per day from which 95% off-road.
The whole tour is accompanied by our fast 4x4 support vehicle; it’ll be there when you need it. We move as a group so nobody wanders off and we keep a comfortable distance between bikes and car. Too close means eating dust and too far might result in losing each other so keep an eye on the group. Logic.

Tour description:

At arrival in Ouarzazate we welcome you in our ***hotel where we have dinner at 20:00h. Accommodation during the tour is twin-share. If you prefer a single room let us know and we arrange it for you. Breakfast is at 8:00h and after that we pick up the KTM’s at our garage. Between 9:00h and 10:00h we’re on track heading south, crossing the 1500m high Jebel Bani mountain range. In a small village we spend the night in a mid-class hotel. It’s a traditional cozy place, hot showers, good food, with friends we know for many years. The next morning, after breakfast and filling up fuel we ride into the desert. Just outside the village smooth trails leads us south towards the Algerian border. Thanks to our 39 years of Morocco experience we avoid most of the stony tracks. We move straight over the flat plains of the dry Iriki Lake in order to reach the largest dune area of Morocco, Erg Chegaga. Here we find our way up to the highest dune top. Sand as far as the eye can see. That night we stay in a luxurious bivouac in Berber tents at the foot of the sand dunes. Next day we head east towards Mhamid for lunch and fuel in Tagounite. Afternoon we arrive at our ***star hotel in Zagora. Here we take time to relax beside the swimming pool enjoying a cool drink. After all, we are on holiday.
From Zagora we head north east to the Sahro mountains. Hotel for that night is a 150 year old Kasbah, all build from 1m thick clay walls. Also here we have a swimming pool at our disposal and delicious dinner in the garden.
The last riding day will be on 120km winding mountain tracks finalizing with a 40km road section back to Ouarzazate where we bring the bikes back to the Bikershome garage, give them a short damage check, and drive to the hotel.

On board the 4×4 service vehicle we carry: Fuel supplies, air-compressor, tubes, tires, spares, tools, fridge and your personal luggage.

Timbuktu Tour

Timbuktu Tour


From Malaga to Timbuktu and back in 30 days

The urge for adventure is in every one of us… we search the internet and read travel stories about faraway places with imaginary names as Timbuktu Dakar Dogon and Bandiagara. Picture yourself riding over endless desert planes… or through a green jungle… past small villages with African people… so now and then a river crossing… breath taking views from top of a mountain pass… freedom as far as the eye can reach.
Until now you were maybe wondering how to travel the region in a safe way… questions such as; “what if I get engine trouble” or “who comes for my recovery in case of a serious crash”?

Bikershome offers you 4×4 support all the way from Malaga to Timbuktu and back. Our support vehicle follows the motorcycle group on short distance. In case of an emergency (injuries, engine failure) assistance is immediately there, a rider can take place in the support vehicle and the motorcycle goes on the back of the pick-up truck.

On board of the support truck we carry an Engel fridge, 200L spare fuel-cans, water-cans, tire-compressor, tools, bike stand. Besides that, every member of the group has the possibility to put some spare luggage in the support vehicle. This is limited to a max of 10kg, confirming to the Ryanair hand-luggage rules.

What do you need to take care of:

A motorbike that you can handle on-road & off-road, you need further good travel condition, valid driver license, a passport with minimum 7 months validity, visas, documents for your bike, vaccinations, credit card and enough cash money to cover all personal expenses such as fuel, food, drinks, accommodation, bribes, etc.
Important is a positive attitude as things can change unexpected.
