Hi guys, I am heading down to Cape Town mid January 2014 from Gibraltar on my bike.
Any one going or wanting to travel part of the way together ?
Does not matter if you are on a bike or in a car, its all about having a good time.
I am currently in London till January.
HEY guys it would be great to catch up.
My plan is to leave Spain on 21 January, ferry across to Morocco.
This is what i have planned
Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Nigeria, Cameroon, Gabon, Congo, Angola, Namibia, South Africa.
I will keep you informed.
Hope to see you all along the way
hello again. looks like youre doing the same route we are (were only going as far as ghana this time, but followed your route 10 years ago, it was brill). if all goes according to plan well be in morocco for christmas, but keep in touch and you may catch us up (im not one for going the direct route and my girlfriends on a 250!!!).
Hi Karl, I looks like there will be 2 of us leaving from Spain. We are leaving on the 27th of Jan and wont be in a rush either. I'm sure we will meet up along the way though so we must definitely stay in touch.
Hi JC, out of interest what are you riding and what are you doing with your bikes when you get to SA? Just deciding on doing either India or part of Africa, I finish work mid-Jan and have to be back in UK late June, not sure if 5 months would be long enough for a full loop...
Hi to all,
My wife and I have just ridden from the UK to the Gambia on two Enfields and are now looking to travel to Capetown in a couple of months, our main concern is regarding the visas required and if it is possible to get them en-route. We would be covering Senegal - Mali - Burkina Faso -Benin - Nigeria -Cameroon -Gabon -Congo -DRC -Angola - Namibia - South Africa. Time is not an issue with us but it would seem pointless to go further if we can't get the visas. Any info on this would be great.
Thanks in advance
Den and Mandy
i am in the middle of this route and have gotten visas as we go. We're currently on Accra awaiting our Angola visa, then we're hot to trot. The hardest one was Ghana, which we got in Dakar, as you can get a visa valid for 3 years from your home country.
many thanks for this info are there any visas that you can only get in certain countries such as the Angolan as we don't intend to go through Ghana. if you have the time it would be interesting to know where you got yours from, from what I understand Bamako is a place for quite a few.
Hi Odermate I am riding a Aprilia ETV Caponord and Adritay is on a XT660R.
I am staying in South Africa and adritay is shipping his bike back to UK.
I think you could do a full loop in 6 months if you a good rider with good bike.
Isaac Feliu Pérez (Africa call) left Spain and did 71 countries, 41500km's all the way around Africa back to Spain in 77 days
We are leaving on 27th of Jan in no rush.
