Dusty Helmets

Dusty Helmets offers a range of off-road motorbike safaris to some of the most spectacular areas in Kenya. Our aim is to show case the stunning wildlife and the natural beauty and cultural diversity of Kenya on two wheels. Our trips combine incredible tracks and routes on enduro bikes with game viewing (sometimes in vehicles) in some of Kenya's finest parks and reserves.

The itineraries outlined on our website are to give you an idea of the areas we can visit on our FE 390 Husabergs. All the trips start at our HQ at the Soysambu Conservancy, close to Lake Elmenteita, and can be customized to suit your wishes, preferences and number of days. All our itineraries are based on off road routes, with the odd crossing of tarmac roads. None of the tarmac sections are on major highways – all on secondary roads.

We also offer you the opportunity to add to your motorbike safari – for example after a week's riding, a few days of relaxation at the Kenya Coast or the Maasai Mara!

While on safari, we provide backup vehicles carrying fuel, water, spares and inclusive of our services is the world-renowned Flying Doctors services. (Emergency medical airlift evacuation).

We provide transport from Nairobi to our base at Soysambu Conservancy and accommodation in Nairobi upon arrival is also part of our package. For local clients, this is optional.

Our itineraries have a minimum of 2 riders and a maximum of 8 riders.  Weekenders are suited for a minimum of 2 riders. For the itineraries to Lake Turkana a minimum of 4 riders and a maximum of 8 riders are required to book. All our itineraries include a front rider, guide, and a backup vehicle.

Our FE 390 Husabergs are not suitable for pillion riding. However, we have two quad bikes available for anyone wishing to ride two up.
