Step 1: CPD Carnet
You’ll need a Carnet to enter Africa. If you are in the USA there is only one place to get it: Boomerang Carnet. But you’ll need the CPD Carnet.

Step 2: Visas
Make sure you have a visa for each country you are planning to visit.
Step 3: Shipping The Bike
I’m still researching this, but here are some things I’ve found.
- South African Airlines Cargo
- African Overlanders
- I’m currently working with DakarMotos in Buenos Aires to take care of all the shipping, crating, paperwork, and cargo headaches. They are a one stop shop and will do all the work for you. Prices for their services vary depending on the size of the bike, destination, etc. Contact them for a quote.
