In May 2007, in close co-operation with BMW, Touratech undertook the world's first adventure motorbike journey on the new BMW F 800 GS.
Together with the BMW G 650 Xchallenge - which had already been tested earlier the two set off on the journey around Lake Victoria, Africa's biggest lake.
The trip covered 5087 km of sand, gravel, corrugated metal and mud - from the white sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean through the Masai steppe in Kenya, the savannah of Tanzania, the green mountains of Burundi and Rwanda, around the extinct Mt. Elgon volcano in Uganda and back to Mombasa.

The team consisted of Herbert Schwarz, who was testing the accessories (which were developed by Touratech) under extreme conditions off-road, and Ramona Schwarz, who accompanied him in photography and film.
Together the two produced thousands of photographs and many hours of film.

Travelling independently with a tent, they had plenty of amazing encounters with the locals.
Throughout their travels, the travellers encountered African joie de vivre and hospitality everywhere they went.
The visit to the world's last surviving mountain gorillas who live in the Virunga volcanoes of Rwanda was unique.

What distinguishes this film from earlier Touratech films is its strong documentary character.
Ramona and Herbert Schwarz shot all the footage for this film themselves. It shows a realistic picture of strange and fascinating Black Africa.
The two captured images on the roadside and of daily life.
Topics such as the genocide in Rwanda and the poverty are also brought closer to the viewer with sensitivity and understanding.
Video length: approx. 55 minutes + Bonus
