Belgium - Cape Town_Western route_Start March 2014
Anyone planning to leave Europe somewhere around March 2014 to drive through the African continent following the Western route?
3 years ago on a BA - Ushuaia - Cartagena trip, I met an Argentinian on the road.
It looks like everything is falling more or less in place to meet up again and go off on another adventure. This time Africa.
Leaving in March 2014 would allow passage through DRC in the dry months when we arrive there.
Duration: 4 to 6 months? Flexible on this, but taking it easy, looking around, no plans to set a new guiness book records...
Bikes: KLR 650's or similar size (not too heavy)
Paperwork: in progress - Carnet de passage will be the go
Visas: along the route (probably trying to get DRC and Angola before start)
If you also have similar plans, let me know, bike or 4x4, part of trip or anything...
