Africa Oct 2005

Well I have finally made it over to Europe and spending the next 3-4 months cruising around. After that I am planning on heading from Morroco to Cape Town. If anybody wants to join me for part or all of the trip through Africa I would enjoy the company. I plan to go down west coast most of the way trying to skirt the bad spots. A carnet de passage is required so you would have to do some planning. I am thinking it will take 3 months for the trip north to south.
Happy Travels

Hi there
I am also planning more or less the same trip in September/ October. Myself and a friend are finally going to head off after two years of day dreaming about this. My bike is desperate to get on the road as she hates being in London, stuck in the slow traffic...she just wants to wheelie all the time and go up and down pot-holes. Sorry - I love my bike (ktm 640 adventure), even though I've only been riding for two years! Also I can't wait to get out of the city and just free flow for a few months. So, let me know if you're heading over to england - maybe we could hook up?

I am thinking of heading to Morocco around that time, something to bear in mind though is that Ramadan is in October which could make travelling through North Africa a little trickier.

Hi, I am riding a BMW GS650 Dakar from Senegal to Cape Town starting the beginning of December.
The trip will take 6-8 weeks via Mali and Burkina Faso to Ghana and then down the west side. Perhaps we can hook up for some or all of the journey depending on where you folks are at.
