Qatari motorcyclist famed as global leader for having traveled from London to Beijing and Alaska to Argentina, Khalid Al-Jaber, is in Tanzania on his way to South Africa.
In the company of other travelers from different countries, he crossed the Namanga border from Nairobi on an African adventure dubbed “Heart of the Planet” targeting the promotion of countries he rides through and encouraging people around the world to explore and enjoy their lifestyle and try out their food, music and cultural heritage.
He will be spending ten days in the country and is due to carry forward his noble cause, including the presentation of laptops to one school in Morogoro Region.
Khalid is considered a record for the State of Qatar and the Middle East region for having ridden a motorbike covering the Silk Road from London to Beijing and 40,000 kilometres from Alaska in the United States to Argentina in Latin America in five months.
Accompanied by a British Guinness Record holder, Mr. Kevin Sanders, Mrs. Julia Sanders, and other travelers from Europe, the group is expected to pass through Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia before entering South Africa.
Besides enjoying the beautiful sceneries of Tanzania, Khalid emphasizes it is important to see the magical islands of Zanzibar and through blogging about his travel encourage more people in the Middle East to visit Africa, especially, Tanzania – the favourite tourist destination for hundreds of thousands of tourists from all over the world.
