1st Time Overlander Morocco to Sth Africa, West Coast, from October 24th 2012
Hi, just a quickie to see if there's any folks out there doing this route towards the end of this year (2012).

I arrive in Tangiers on Wed 24th Oct and plan on riding down to Western Sahara, then Mauritania, through Mali, Burkina Faso, Benin, Nigeria, Cameroon and South, all the way to South Africa for New Year - Hopefully.

If there's anyone heading that direction it'd be great to hear from you, also if you've been that way recently, any updates on conflict situations, borders etc would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Hi Bruce,

Did this route a few years back and now in Namibia, going to be there until early Feb. Planning on visiting Botswana and S.Africa from the end of this month, will be travelling solo for the next 8 weeks.. drop me a line if you need any info or want to meet up

Hello Bruce, although i will miss you (leaving spain too late) i would love to know how you have sorted the following:
1. medical insurance for countries on the foreign office 'no go' list (are you just keeping your fingers crossed?
2. Getting unleaded petrol in these areas - or are you 'cat free'? and sorted your bike electronics?
Anyway - i wish you luck, take care and enjoy it
