London to Capetown - but what about Sudan?
This is my very first post to this site; and, to be honest, my very first motorcylce adventure. My partner has already been on 3 cross-country, overland adventures and we are planning going from London - Capetown next Spring (2010). I've been reading through this site and there is so much wisdom that I'm eager to have some feedback.
I have some hesitations about traveling through certain parts of this trip, specifically Sudan. Has anyone traveled through there recently? Are there any women on this site who have traveled - either on their own or with a partner - through this country and/or other northern/eastern African countries? I am really wanting to learn more to ease some of my anxiety about it all. We're considering going through the Middle East to Egypt and then through East Africa to Capetown. I suggested flying from Egypt to Kenya; but, as the riders on here know, that is not a possibility.
