egypt,sudan, ethiopia, kenya travellers sought

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)

hi omar

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.

thanks again

sudanese visa was a two stage affair:

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.

hope this helps, and good luck!
