Graeme Sharp

My Dakar Safari 2020

Born and raised in the outdoors where exploration, adventure and motorcycles where the order of the day - Graeme spent his childhood on a large cattle ranch in central Zimbabwe near the town of Mvuma.

After moving to Lake Kariba in the north of Zimbabwe, Graeme was introduced to off - road trail and enduro riding where, at 14 years old on a Yamaha WR 400 he began to explore vast swathes of the Zambezi Valley. These regular forays into the wilderness fuelled his love for adventure and ultimately a career in the outdoors.

Through his 20’s, after studying Adventure Tourism Management in New Zealand, Graeme led several multi day enduro tours from Kariba to Victoria Falls, Paddled several stretches of the Zambezi River, sat his LPHG exams and managed luxurious safari camps in the Zambezi Valley.

In 2013 Graeme had the opportunity to travelled to South America and immerse himself in the Dakar Rally - travelling in a converted race truck Graeme followed the race from Lima in Peru south to Argentina. It was here in the buzzing heart of the bivouac that he knew his childhood dream would become a reality.

Since then Graeme has participated in several rally events - in 2017 he completed his first International Rally - the Baja Rally in Mexico, finishing 11th with a penalty free 1800 Kms.
