London to Cape Town in 10 minutes
As part of a look back at our Africa Overland trip, we compiled a 10 minute film that offers an insight into the road conditions you are going to face if you travel the West Coast / Central African route towards South Africa. From the deserts of North Africa and the lush greens of West Africa to the mud of Cameroon and rain forest of Gabon, this video has the lot.
You can down load the GPS track and way points for the entire route at our GPS page
We did a fair bit of off-road driving as well as main roads so the video has a mix of road types for you to see. We must stress that this route was done in the dry season. Overnight rains and the wet season change roads very quickly, so don't think it will be like this in West & central Africa all the time!!
We hope you enjoy it as much as we did driving it!
