Who we are

Thomas Assenmacher

Thomas was born and bred in Germany and went into the corporate world in the field of electronic engineering. His passion for exploring the country on his motorcycle allowed him a balance to his stressful career in sales. Thomas and his wife Nina moved to South Africa in 1998 where he was able to make a career out of his passion and started a motorcycle touring business.

As a registered tourist guide Thomas has been showing off his new home to clients for the past 8 years both from the back of a motorcycle and from the comfort of an air-conditioned vehicle. Personal service and a deep love for his second home ensure that his clients have a most memorable experience while on tour with Thomas.

The best thing about my travels:
Finding a new road with curves and magnificent scenery to enjoy on my own or share with fellow motor bikers on the next trip. Finding great food and warm hospitality all over the country at the end of the day’s travels.

Nina Assenmacher

Nina grew up in South Africa and already in her youth had a passion for traveling through this beautiful country. After spending 10 years in Germany working in the hospitality industry she returned to South Africa and settled in Cape Town starting a motorcycle touring business with her husband Thomas.

During the past 10 years Nina has worked for tour operators who specialize in private customized holidays and has put together many memorable holidays for her clients. She has a special talent for finding accommodation establishments which offer exceptional value for money, great service and are often off the beaten track.

Attention to detail and a natural interest in people have helped her plan holidays that are tailored to the specific interests of her clients.

The best thing about my travels:

Afternoon game drives in any of our magnificent game reserves – no matter how many times I see the sun set in the African Bush, I am still in absolute awe of its magical beauty.
