Returning for a nostalgic adventure on motorcycles

Eighteen Indonesian adventure motorcyclists are currently on a 4700 km journey, exploring five countries in Southern Africa.

The biker crew is being lead by General Nana Soekarna, Indonesia’s Police Commissioner. The journey started in Cape Town on 11 June and is expected to end in Livingston, Zambia on 29 June.

The Indonesian Embassy in Namibia this week in a statement said that the bikers are currently in the country and the team grabbed the opportunity to visit some top rated tourist attractions such as the Fish River Canyon, Ludertiz, Namib Naukluft National Park as well as Windhoek, while interacting with locals during their visit.

“This journey is somewhat a nostalgic trip for Commissioner General Nana Soekarna, since he was deployed in Namibia as a member of United Nations Transition Assistance Group (UNTAG) during 1989/90,” the Embassy added.

According to the Embassy the group is scheduled to have dinner at the Ambassador’s Residence on 21 June and depart to their next destination, which is Ganzi in Botswana on 22 June.
