It’s GS Africa’s 10th Birthday!

GS Africa 10 Year Birthday

What an exciting 10 years it has been – so many great memories, adventures and faces which rapidly developed into special friendships.

2020 marks our 10th anniversary and what better way could there be than to celebrate it with you, our treasured client. To mark this auspicious occasion, we are delighted to share our FIRST GS AFRICA NEWSLETTER with you.

To kick-off our first edition, we look back where our journey began and thank all our valued clients and friends. Without your trust and inspiration none of this would have been possible.

Where It All Started

As a family-run business, we fondly think back and reminisce the early days and humble beginnings of our GS Africa story. With only two (of his personal) BMW motorcycles at his disposal, Paul spent countless days and late nights launching GS Africa in his garage in Bloubergstrand.

GS Africa 10 Year Birthday

Where it all started…

Early Days & Growth of the Team

What initially started out as a hobby only, rapidly took shape as Paul was soon joined by his wife Petreaux. With growth comes new challenges, and as business picked up, daughter Candi-Lee joined the operation in 2016 to help drive and streamline the business processes.

Our latest addition to the GS Africa family is Josh, our designated operations and rental agent – joining to shift the business into higher gear to improve our offerings and services.

Scaling Our Footprint

Very soon the garage became too small to accommodate all our adventure bikes, so time to move our operation to a bustling suburb near the V & A Waterfront Hotels, 652 sq. meters of prime retail space. Nothing could make us prouder than moving into the heart of Cape Town from where most clients kick-off their trips.

Our fleet has grown to over 40 pristine motorcycles which include the LATEST BMW MODELS – the F750GS, F850GS, R1250GS and ADVENTURE ranges. Our showroom of impressive BMW’s and Harley-Davidson’s is proof that we are perfectly positioned to offer our clients the options to experience the latest advancements in engines, technology, handling and so much more.

Our Ambition Becoming Reality

In the beginning we were famous for only offering motorcycle rentals but after 10 years of fine-tuning (mind the pun) our rental process, we progressed and graduated from the humble leading premium rental company to a world-class motorcycle turnkey touring company based in South Africa.

To celebrate a decade of providing top notch motorcycle tours throughout Southern Africa, we as GS Africa will soon be launching our Guided Scheduled Tours that will include the world renowned Garden Route Tour as the first of many tour packages to follow. Additional destinations on the roadmap will include gems like Namibia, Kruger National Park etc.

As ever, it is our dedicated wish to create safe, customised Guided Tours resulting in experiences that will create long-lasting memories with great company.

Looking forward to welcoming you to explore the warmth of Mama Africa’s open bosom and endless roads with timeless views.
