I heard the same thing today. It really is getting more and more difficult to get to South Africa by the eastern route.
I contacted Tidwa tours tonight asking them if they stopped issueing the visa's.

I got a reply today from Tidwa about a question concerning our carnets for Libya. I asked them about the visa's and hope to get an answer soon.

I got an almost immediate reply from Ben. He assured me that there wasn't a problem with getting the visa's.

Please post when you actually got the visa and what the requirements are. I'm still in West-Africa, but it is my preferred route to return to Europe.

Cheers from Lomé,

Gee

Hi Guys ,

I rode through Libya last year.. I found one of the most friendliest countries I have ever been to.. Don't believe the rubbish you see on the news. Go there and you will be presently surprised.

Email Masoud for info and visas, He'll sort you out. He even met me at the border and I spent the first night there in his home. He's a very nice and helpful guy.

4x4tripping: Howto reach the eastern route of africa

And generally how the people start their transafrica over the east, how they cross or avoid egypt.
