Alex Jackson visited South Africa for the very first time in 1998. He hired a bike and, with a local friend, rode along some of the most amazing roads he’d ever seen. After just a week he returned home, but knew he’d be back many, many times. Such was the power of Table Mountain and the beauty surrounding Cape Town. Early in 2016 Alex made his 50th trip to the country and is looking forward to the next 50.
When Alex conceived the idea for Kaapstad Motorcycle Adventure Tours, it was with one simple aim in mind: to share his life-long love affair with the “Rainbow Nation” with as many people as possible. Read some of our client testimonials and judge for yourself if we’re being successful in achieving that goal.
We only sell tours that we lead ourselves. Alex will be with you every step of the way, from the moment you make an enquiry to the day you arrive in South Africa and we hit the road on the bikes.
So much more than just a motorcycle tour.
Meet the Team
Alex (Owner, Tour Host and Bag Carrier)
With a love of motorcycles, adventure, wildlife and people, Alex finds his “job” one of the most rewarding things he has ever done – and that’s saying something for a former Police Officer and Head of Facilities/Security for one of the biggest IT companies in the world.
Not only does Alex lead every tour himself, he is registered with FGASA (Field guide association of South Africa). He has been training for nearly 12 years as a Bush Guide and is qualified to Level 4 in Track and Sign.
Listen to Alex being interviewed on Adventure Rider Radio recently:
