I will be following your progress this year I hope if you make it to Angola you can call in, we are now living in Luanda, although we can't really help with the visa issues we would be happy to help with a hot shower, obviously a cold and any route info!

Good luck to you all

Linz

Dear Linz,
I'd be glad to meet you in Luanda (to make you even more jealous).
But of course not intentionally.
I will leave Germany (Frankfurt) by November 27th and plan to depart approx. 1st December from Libreville (Gabon) via the Congos,
Point-Noire, Cabinda to meet you in Luanda. Hopefully entering in
Soyo with a double entry visa in my Passport.

I still don't have company, all the guys seem to leave later than me.
Cheers
Michael

Africa on very little money or prep

Hey guys,

just saw this thread today - soooo wish I'd picked up on it ages ago, got back from a Namibia trip a few months ago, and thinking that if I can manage to pay for the carnet for my old xt, get all the shots, buy the ferry tickets across into Morocco - I would then be surviving on very little plus the kindness of strangers.... soooo, was just wondering if anyone has done this sort of thing - that is - flying by the seat of your pants with very little prep or money? Or is this not to be recommended? I reckon, by the time I get all of the above sorted, I'll probably be good to go december / january - any other late stragglers out there who can join me (and are possibly better prepared)? Bonus for me would be if you're good with bike mechanics (not my strong point), I'll be over the moon!!!

Hey Migo

Nope sorry - not Ted or over 70 (although some days it feels like it!)

Yes, I think starting a thread of my own will be a good idea, but might help if I at least get the Carnet sorted first!!

If you're off soon - have an awesome trip, and I'll keep an eye on this thread for the rest of you.

Hey Silvie, good luck with the planning & prep. Africa is terrific (at least so far), the people have been wonderful. I'm a little south of Timbuktu and should be there in a couple of days.

Some pics, videos, and reports at RIDE FAR | Mark Hammond.

If not, enjoy yourself

Hey all,

we´re trying to ride two 90´s teneres south from Holland to Cape Town along the western route, and back up again along the east side.

Left home the 16th of november and we´ll probably cross over to morocco later this week.

If anyone is in the area, or has some advice not posted somewhere else feel free to PM or even SMS at 0031621682371

cheers
Daan and Chris
