Just completed trip to Timbuktu
My wife and I completed a 7800 mile round trip to Timbuktu on 23rd of October in a 1985 Range Rover. I am happy to share experiences with anyone contemplating a similar trip.
In January 2005 I made a trip of Portugal until Tombouctou in a1980 Toyota BJ40. You can see the story in:
It’s a portuguese site, but you can translate it.
I'll make a journey in West-Africa from nov. 2005 till feb. 2006. I also want to visit Timbuctu, so I'm interested in your experience. Espacially wich route you took to Timbucto.

The tracks are easy. The biggest difficulty will be the ridges of the trucks. It has some small sand zones and some "fesh fesh". If starts to rain, will have a lot of mud, but not in Nov./Fev (starts to pray):-)
Niafonké - Tombouctou
the track is wide, in good condition, but with some "tôle ondulé "
The route in Ozi Explorer is in the botton:
