Morocco to Dakar, Travel Time?
I am looking into a trip from Paris to Dakar in early spring '11. I am figuring that ten days is a good amount of time to get from Paris to Gibraltar, and that is my kind of riding/site seeing pace. I know I could spend weeks in Morocco enjoying the sights, but I have no idea what roads and travel times would be like getting through Western Sahara, Mauritania, and then Senegal. I would probably stick to the coast and plan to move right along. Is two weeks enough time to make the Africa section of the trip? I want to see a few sights and not get burned out by riding, but at the same rate I am not sure how much time I can take. I think 3-4 weeks total.
Thoughts and inputs are welcome.
