Africa Adventure

The “Africa Adventure” from GlobeRiders chronicles a 6,000-mile motorcycle journey through the grandest scenery and most demanding terrain in South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Botswana, Zambia, and Namibia. Filled with drama, beauty, challenge and local culture, the 37-day ride of discovery is shared through expert filmmaking and a beautiful musical score. As with all GlobeRiders movies, the riders’ personal experiences, motorcycle issues and travel tips are also covered.

Not everyone will complete the journey, as the roads are punishing and the ride is demanding. Beginning in Cape Town, South Africa, an iconic city nestled on the southern spit of the African continent, the riders experience the vibrant chants of Zulu warriors, a safari deep in the wild heart of the Okavango Delta and a kaleidoscope of color splashed atop the world’s tallest sand dunes. Along the way they will forge friendships to last a lifetime.

“The fifth touring production between Helge Pedersen and Noren Films proves to be one of the best so far with enough visual and educational impact to scratch the toughest of itches.”
– ADV Moto Magazine, march/April 2012

“I really enjoyed the sub-themes of respect & humility throughout the film. Really separates it from the run-of-the-mill motorcycle travelogue.”
– BMW Owners News

“I am definitely impressed with Sterling’s cinematic prowess–his flawless fades, juxtapositions, plus his talent to notice, integrate smoothly,(and to weave) the various geological anomalies into the film (dare I say, somewhat Ansel Adams-imish?) I always live vicariously through these films, and generally harbor a bit of remorse that I had not been there.”
