Meet Sam Manicom

Sam Manicom set off to travel the length of Africa on ‘Libby’, is BMW R80 GS, only three months after first learning to ride a motorcycle. What he’d planned as a one-year trip turned into an eight-year, 200,000 mile, 55-country adventure around the world. His four books Into Africa, Under Asian Skies, Distant Suns and Tortillas to Totems vividly describe that epic journey.
