It'll be fine :-)
We are riding through Gabon, Congo, DRC and Angola around Dec/Jan too, I'm not expecting it to be all plain sailing but we aren't exactly pioneers.
Plenty of people have done these routes at this time of year and lived to tell the tale. Check out Paul and Zoe Jenkins in the Travellers Tales section, they did it in 2004, also see Lois on the Loose
, Lois did it on her own on a 250 Yam at the beginning of this year, including crossing Angola in 5 days. Also read about Robbo and Amy, THE HARD WAY HOME
, they were in central Africa around Dec 2006.
Bring a shovel, a tow rope and a bottle of whiskey incase the first two don't work.
Of course, bike choice makes a big difference, all those people I mentioned used offroad bikes, as do we.
See you in the mud!
