Africa: Against The Clock On A Motorcycle

Edition year: 2002
HorizonsUnlimited description:

Born in Germany in 1937, Werner Bausenhart has been an avid traveler all his life, but his longing for faraway places only increased when he discovered the joys of adventure motorcycle touring. Upon retiring from the academic staff at the University of Ottawa, Bausenhart discovered that his penchant for travel had become a full-blown addiction. He circumnavigated both North and South America before tackling a marathon trek through Russia, China, and Eastern Europe. The books he wrote about these trips soon became popular among other like-minded riders.

His latest binge continues the quest, beginning in London and proceeding down the west coast of Africa to Cape Town, South Africa, returning along the east coast via Cairo. As with Bausenhart’s other books, he tells some good stories, and includes a lot of practical tips and information for those dreaming of similar adventures. Bausenhart’s desription of his journey provides a fairly recent account of travel conditions in this part of the world and he is able to give it the perspective of a seasoned and savvy traveler.
