GS Tours By BMW Safari

This year, in addition to our regular Safari events, BMW Safari will be running a number of smaller events under the name of GS Tours. The Simpson Crossing will be one of these rides, starting in Alice Springs to spectate the running of the Finke Desert Race and then departing on the Tuesday 13 June straight after the race.  Our tour will lead a small group of BMW GS customers on a ride across the Simpson Desert from Alice Springs, past Mt Dare, to Birdsville, crossing the Simpson’s 1100 red sand dunes.

On this trip we will have two support vehicles, allowing riders to ride the sandy route without the weight of luggage and extra fuel. The support vehicles will also carry all of our food, water and provide basic tyre and tech support.

Obviously riders thinking about coming along on the GS Tours Simpson Crossing need to be experienced in riding off road, with some sand experience also. We know that many GS Safari customers are very good riders, so this is a chance for a small group to be part of something very special.

BMW GS riders looking to register their interest in the BMW GS Tours – Simpson Crossing can email – You will then receive a detailed information sheet including pricing and a link to the registration form.

Registration for this ride will close at the end of April or when  maximum rider numbers are reached.
