Accommodation at Beach Houses and 3-star Hotels.

We stay at picturesque 3 star hotels. All the hotels are a stones throw from the beach. This means the warm Indian Ocean is always waiting for riders after a rewarding day on the bike.

 The Beach houses are privately owned which Dirt Bike Tours are fortunate enough to gain access to. It is pretty Wild and rustic but is the perfect environment for the group to bond and relax. The house and is clean with fresh linen, electricity, showers, hot food and cold drinks.

Its the perfect place to kick back and relax while enjoying magnificent views of Qora river Mouth from the large wooden deck.
