Companions and info sought for Algeria-Mali or Niger in jan 2008
Am planning to go Algeria-Mali or Niger in jan 2008 in my own car and I am looking for travel partners. If anyone is driving either Route before me PLEASE send me your e-mail adress so that I can get up to date info. I have been stuck before in both Libya and Jordan due to suddenly closed borders and dont want to repeat it.
im planing the same route on nov2007.
I recive few info from travel agency from tamm. see below.
its very dangerous now to go to Niger and Mali , i thinkh is not permitted for
foreignere to travel in Niger and nortn MALI
Fot you its neccerery to travel only in Algéria
For alls paper we need all informations from you and we send you BY FAX tne
invitations to get the visa
I think its imposseble to go to Agadez and Air
In dont have informations about mali but i know that north Mali its very
but IMHO we should wait bit longer for right informations about this region.
I got similar info. I just tried to write you but I apparantly dont have enough postings to do so, so if you read this PLEASE send me an e-mail to markus_carlsson AT hotmail dot com. If you do decide to go before me it would be GREAT if I could ask you some questions.
From Algeria route Niger or Mali
I’m in the final stage of preparation for the same route Dec07/Jan08, Tunisia –Algeria – Niger or Mali – Nigeria. I’ve even bought air tickets for my wife and kid to meet us up in Nigeria.
So far information I’m getting online is neither boarder (Niger or Mali) is confirmed closed, Our initial plan was via Niger, online information has it that one would have to join a military convoy in the northern part of Niger but I’ve got no confirmation if they'll let foreigners join the convoy, our Algeria tour guide said that at the moment Mali is less dangerous, so we are going via Mali and entering Niger from the south. Our final destination is Nigeria.
I'm also looking at doing this route in mid December 2008 in a vehicle heading towards Guinea; not sure whether to go south via Libya or Algeria.
PM/E-mail me would be great to have companions on this trip
Fun that we are so many going at about the same time! (I am in contact with two more, plus gregor who seems to be going before us). Would be even better if I could get in touch with you via e-mail, (I dont have the necessary amout of posts yet...., although now one less to go), so send me a message at email@example.com or call +46705233612.
pls contact me on my e-mail.
I am sitting down in guinea-bissau with my F650 GS Dakar (Tank's modded to 39ltrs) hopefully going to the Timbuctuo Music Festival, via Conekry. Which way are going to Guinea, And i would be really interested in your northern Mali Experiences.
