If you're passing through Kampala I can defintely recommend this place :

Welcome to the Red Chilli Hideaway website Uganda's No 1 Backpackers' Hostel and Campsite

Good budget accommodation with secure parking. Plus Kampala is a good place to look if you need tyres, parts etc.

Hey Omar,

The plans stands still on the 14th, I will heading to Alex as soon as I have entered Egypt. It should take me two days to arrive in ALex. If you pm me your phone number I will give you a call asap. I will try to get my Sudan visa in Cairo since I have read you message about the ferry in Aswan. I want to leave on the 29th or 30th of november right. That will give me enough time to arrange my visa for Sudan and to have a look at your tracks4africa maps. I already have the visa for thiopia

Cheers Richard

I leave South Africa about the time you leave Egypt and plan on traveling the same countries. What say we meet in the middle and exchange notes on where to stay and what to see.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
