South Africa to Ethiopia - Questions about everything
I am a newbie to this site, firstly thanks to all who donate their time to share with everyone, really amazing. So, the wife and I are planning on doing a ride from South Africa to Ethiopia over about 4 months. I have a million questions but I will focus on two if i may;
First, I originally planned on purchasing a new bike in SA and then riding that all the way up and then shipping it back to SA or perhaps even to Australia where I am currently living. Then I thought about carnet's and perhaps it would be better to buy here in OZ and then ship it over so that at least I would have the carnet's all sorted out etc. Now I am enquiring about pricing to ship so perhaps that might be the decider. Does anyone have advise on that one at all?
Secondly, if I did buy in SA would it then be difficult and time consuming to get a carnet arranged from there given that I would be applying for it in Europe? Can I sell it in ethiopia or do I need to get it shipped back to SA where I purchased it from/
Thanks for any and all help on this one
