– a solo bicycle journey from Cape Town to the Netherlands –

Africa! The continent of the Big Five, vast savannahs,  arid deserts, national parks, high mountains and traditional people. Reasons why I’ve been visiting Africa several times for the past years, each trip for quite a short period of time.

During those trips to Africa, a dream arose. I wanted to explore Africa for a longer period of time, and in a more intensive way! For me, the best way to do that is on a bicycle.

In January ’17 I started cycling in Cape Town. I cycled through South-Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya, Morocco, Spain, France, Belgium and to finally arrive in my hometown in the Netherlands in May ’17.

I made my dream come true.

A life changing experience.
