Antwerp to Cape Town and back:start dec 2011
Hi all you HUBBers,
A few days ago I decided to drive my Yamaha ténére around Africa and I will start this little trip as soon as december 2011. You can read the motivation here:
Africa Full Circle
Around the 12th of dec I will take the ferry from Sete in France to Nador. I will traverse Morocco in just a week (I was there already 3 times) and then make sure I'm in Mali on the 8th of Januari as I'll meet up with a friend. From then on it will be more relaxed. Another 3 months to SA arriving around april and then up the east coast in another 5 months, arriving back home before winter 2012. These periods are ofcourse preliminary, only thing I'm sure about is when I'm leaving.
Are any of you on that route? I know of 2 other Belgians, but they are a couple of months ahead of me.
I will be traveling alone on a bike, but it would be great to team up for the more difficult stretches, even with overlanders in a 4x4.
Wish me luck and maybe we'll meet somewhere on the road,
's on me!
