Cape Town to Europe Route
i'm the early stage of planning a cape town to europe (in a 4wd sorry) trip. i know is a fairly well beaten path but with a VERY nervous girlfriend i really need to plan the trip well in advance. i'm bascially starting in cape town and reserching and planning the route going north,
bascially i have it all worked out (i think) to as far north as Uganda area. I realise things change, civil unrest weather, border crossing etc meet people along with way and they recommend places to go etc etc, but to reassure her she really wants th rout planned as best as possible. she has been doing her own reasearch and the bit that worries us most is from uganda/kenya to Egypt.
What is the safest route north?
what is the situation with south sudan now? and the road from the nairobi to the ethpioan border? is it safe?
we really want to go to Ugangda to see the gorillas, from there up what would be the safest way north?
I fully appreciate things change and the advice given now may no longer be current in 6 months time but any help would be appreciated, we havent done a major overland trip before.
has anyone got to route take taken available to look at?
