Cameroon -> Angola (May )
hi ,. I plan to resume my trip (motorbike currently in Yaounde ). I plan to start driving around the 1st May down to Angola -and may be Namibia-
A few questions thou:
1 How "serious" is the rainy season + mud roads. I mean , I know It will rain , and I know there will be a bit of mud . Is it doable , or stupidily impossible ? My reasoning is that if a Vannete or a Hiace can drive on a mud-track , then I certainly can with a offroad motorbike ( Honda XL-LMF 600 ).
I am specially concerned about Cameroon to Congo Rep . After that It should be ok , as the southern raininng season will be almost over by then .
2 What is the story about those "barrier pluviere"s that block Cameroon roads every 10 or so Kms (?) . It seems to me that in the rainy season , roads are actually closed down ! . Is this for every vehicle ? only trucks ? would that include motorbikes aswell ?
3 Any travellers around ? anyone interested on meeting up in Cameroon , Braza , Point Noire ?
4 Is it sensible to expect to buy knobbly tyres 21 /17 in Cameroon ? or should I bring a new set with me ?
Happy to hear your thoughts
