Secure parking in West Africa
I need to store my bike for 3-4 months somewhere in West Africa, preferably Ghana or Togo.

Any recommendations for secure parking in either of these countries?

I understand both Ghana and Togo issue laissez passers - can someone confirm if the details of your vehicle are stamped in your passport as well?

The following was posted for me on a thread i started... i might help?

'You could consider doing the trip down in legs. First leg to Nairobi (asuming the unrest will have settled by October). Three or four months for London to Nairoby is pretty relaxed. There is a very good place to leave your bike in Nairobi, Jungle Junction. Maybe you heard of it, German bloke with motorbike work shop. Big enclosed area where lots of overlanders stay. He can take care of the bike, store it, run it regularly etc all for a very small fee. Friend of mine did it with his Landcruiser. Was there for a year and then he picked it up again to continue the trip.This way you would enjoy it as much you'd expect !'

Thanks Doug,

Have already dropped Toni Togo an email, but no response as yet.

I was leaning towards Ghana, just because the direct flight connections back to the Uk are a bit easier.

Can you remember if either country stamps the vehicle details in your passport?

I had a carnet, and no stamp ended up in my passport.
