if not possible to any country which is possible to cross or to travel in by ship along the coast > Ghana
Gabon > Equatorial Guinea > Cameron > Nigeria > Benin > Togo > Burkina Faso > Cote D'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) > Liberia > Sierra Leone > Guinea > Guinea Bissau > Gambia > Senegal
Mauritania and Mali – if possible
Flight to Ghana, buy a motorcycle in Lomé (Togo), visit some places in Ghana, like the Lake of Bosumtwe and start the trip along the west coast via verse then above.
All the time I will look for a nice place to stay and settle down.
Companions, even for parts of the journey, are welcome.
I'm grateful for any advices from someone who traveled on "my" route lately.
Hi Henry ,
what im sure about that there is a ferry boat from Mersin in Turkey ,to Port Said in Egypt ,so maybe it can be a way to you
perhaps by November the new land road between Egypt and Sudan will be open and you avoid the Ferry from Aswan to halfa and save some $$$
I'm planning to start from Alexandria by late October ,following the Nile and back ,so maybe we can ride together some of it ,
you have a house and safe park for your bike in Alexandria,
if you need more info feel free to contact me
cheers and good luck
