Trans Africa Duration
This is a re-post, but this time to the correct group!
A simple question, with a hundred answers I'm sure!
I'm planning a trans-Africa trip for 2004. The route is roughly as follows (despot dependant...) Maroc, Mauritania, Senegal, Mali, Niger, Chad, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique and South Africa.
I'm wondering how much time to allow for this, or maybe the question I should ask is "how fast can you do this?". While I don't plan to race, I can only take 4-6 months, which will be enough time to deal with the bureaucracy through Africa, but will it give me enough time to appreciate the trip.
I'd be interested to hear from anyone who's made this trip in the 4-6 month timeframe and if you thought it was too rushed...
