Dakar to Nairby - best route?
I've previously gone from Cape Town to Nairoby. In january I will make my way from Tanger to Dakar (and then to Bissau). On a mission to connect the dots North-South in Africa, i would very much like to find the best route between Dakar and Nairoby.
In Chris Scott's Adventure Motorcycle handbook, he depicts on a map an alternative route that takes you from Dakar, through Chad and Sudan, but provides no info about it besides the map. All I read about Chad tells me not to go, and if i should ever find muyself there, get the hell out asap. What are your opinions about this route?
If there is no good route west-east between Dakar and Nairoby, then all I am really left with as far as I can see is to drop my ambition to connect these dots all together and rather make a third trip between either Cape Town and Dakar, or between Alexandria and Nairoby - this in my pursuit to having traversed Africa North to South.
You might think it stupid that i feel that i have to travel North South in a connected and uninterrupted route, and i would agree. Still, I can't help it - this is what i want.
Thanks for all input.
