Egypt Carnet now possible from South Africa!
I wish i could have made this post when i was stuck in Aswan trying to get my bike into Egypt, but at least theres good news now for those who are still to go...
I spoke to the AA in Cape Town and it is now possible to get a SA issued carnet validated for Egypt. This comes at a price of course- 200% of the value of the bike. And im told that foreigners can get their carnets issued here too, which is good because if youre planning to miss Egypt you can get a carnet for a mere $100.00 that is valid for the rest of Africa and most of Europe.
