Chris, I did not expect a reply from you! Does this route feature in your book? Oops, you guessed, I haven't got a copy yet.
I was thinking of: Italy - Tunis - Nefta - el-Oued - Ghardaia - in Salah - Tam - in Guezzam/Assamaka - Arlit - Agadez - Dosso (instead of going as far as Niamey) Malanville/Gaya – Parakou.
Still OK in your experience?
