i am looking for persons who are either doing this stretch or are planning on doing so in the next couple of months. i am in egypt now, intending to travel south along the nile to aswan, over the lake, to wadi haifa, on to khartoum and then east to ethiopia.
i have all my documentation in order, visas, etc,and my bike (yamaha tenere xt600 '88) is mechanically sound, the reason i am looking for people to travel with at this late stage is because my travel companion's bike has recently experienced serious mechanical problems causing him to stay in cairo for a month, whereas i do not have a month to spare in egypt, and need to continue.
if anyone is interested, please email me.
thank you very much
(ps i am a 28-year old english-speaking south african male for anyone contemplating me as a travel companion)
how are you .i,m in egypt my name is omar and i live in egypt.if you want any help please contact me
my phone number is 0101703058
if you want to visit alex. i have a place for you and a garage for your motorbike,and i know a very good mechanics here in alex,
i just came from europe but i couldnt get my bike so i left it in france errrrrrr
hope to hear from you soon
thanks for your reply - just too late this time, as we rode down from alexandria to cairo yesterday (my friend's bike on a truck!). we might well give you a call sometime as we have a fairly large mechanical task on our hands and any help about sourcing spares in egypt would be much appreciated.
Hi, where and when did you get your Sudan Visa and was it any hassel, I am UK passport holder curently in Turkey, heading Syria,Jordan,Egypt,Sudan, I recon on being in Egypt in about 3 or 4 weeks and spending 3 or 4 weeks there. Chris
to start with, we sent our passports back to south africa to the sudanese embassy there (we are south africans living in london), the visas were issued fairly quickly, provided all the requirements were there - letter from employer, hotel booking, etc.
unfortunately these were only valid for 30 days from date of issue, so by the time we had made our way through europe to egypt, they had expired, so we needed to get new visas in cairo.
this proved to be quite easy - US$56, four passport photos, and a letter of recomendation from our embassy, and we even got the visas on the same day as we applied. i think this was because we had already been granted them.
hope this helps. the sudanese embassy is in garden city near the nile in cairo, quite close to the american university in cairo.
