Days 8 and 9 – Heart of Africa Motorcycle Tour
Sadly we had to leave our piece of heaven in Rwanda, and crossed the border into Tanzania.
View from our hotel in Kigali.
Fuel stop in Rwanda. Motorcycle is between us but not visible because everyone wanted to be in the photo.
The ladies looking ready for the day!
Beautiful Rwanda… its amazing what these guys can load on their bicycles.
Picnic lunch stop on the road.
The border post was modernized and a real pleasure to pass through. There is only one building for customs and immigration for both the countries.
Sadly the first 100km in Tanzania did not yet see the upgrade of the border post. The badly potholed we crawled through but it is just part of the adventure.
On the road in Tanzania, some potholes and red dust.
The surprise roads in Tanzania
We arrived in Kahama and experienced real Africa in a small local hotel.

Our lunchspot view.
We decided on an early morning start to take on our longest day in the saddle. The riders made good time of it and we arrived well in time at Lake Manyara, close to the Serengeti, for sundowners.
Nice swimming pool after the long riding day.
What a view! And then there’s the Rift Valley.

Tomorrow we go on Safari, the cameras are ready, batteries charged and we leave the bikes for two days to experience the wide open plains and the Ngorogoro crater.
