Have you checked out our new video?
Riding the Garden Route with Sama Tours.
At the end of April, we joined the last week of the 17 Day Best South African Road Trip ever to make a video. We had our very own film crew, a top of the range drone and a whole bunch of excited riders.
We love, Love, LOVE how the video came out. It really captures what it is like to ride with Sama Tours: The AMAZING Accommodation that we stay at, the beautiful roads that we ride, THE epic wildlife, people and the emotions of riding in one of the world most beautiful destinations.
