Bernardo,

splendid idea, travelling with a lightweight. Be aware about safety of your belongings in your softtop!!
We are doing the same (crazy) thing with a group of 7 series in july-august.
All the best.

Bernardo,

we start in Belgium in july and we have to reach the small village of Bansang (near Georgetown in The Gambia) : we are taking goods for the hospital and school overthere.
No, we don't go to Dakar. We go inland Senegal.

Karel.



bernardo feio lightweight 4 Feb 2002 20:14

that was one of our's ideas. and/or material to schools: books paper pens,etc,...

you are planig to go to Senegal and them come back by road to belgium? In how many days are you thinking?

regards

karellevrau 4 Feb 2002 20:24

Yep,

we shoul reach The Gambia in about 4 weeks. We will ship the Landies back to Antwerp and come back ourself by plane (due to lack of time).

We will ship a container with goods for Bansang. It is virtually impossible to take many things in your own 4WD : you need all of the payload a can get.

hi karel

Were can we find information about the ships and containers. Do you have any idea how much does it cost to ship a land rover
(or a container with land rovers) from dakar(or any other place in Senegal) to portugal? How much will you pay to send them to belgium?

I find out that you already speak with Renato Braz. We are planning this trip together!!! small internet world
:-))

Hi Bernardo,

Here's maybe some interesting link for you about shipping your car
http://www.maersksealand.com/thegambia/ and http://www.gamport.gm/

I realize it's not Dakar but Banjul is only a one day drive once you're there. Also, these people might have useful info on Dakar port as well. I suggest you drop them a line by e-mail.

cheers and keep the conversation going...

Robert

thanks robert

I will send them a few lines

Bernardo,

indeed a small world. We will ship the landies back home with a belgium-based company (Banjul-Antwerp).
I don't have any information about shipping to Portugal : but look around on the net (even the yellow pages), you will find enough companies.

Hope to see you and Renato once in Africa or in Portugal : we think of coming to Portugal with a few landies to do some ofroad.

Hello Bernardo,

Great trip you are going to do with the series landrovers.
