London to Cape Town 2011 July/Aug-Dec

I'm a female looking for travel partners to join me for all, or a part of, my journey from London to Cape Town in a few months time.

The vehicle is supplied fully kitted out and we will be using the roof tent and ground tent for sleeping arrangements. The vehicle also has a fridge and cooking facilities on board.

We'll be leaving in July through Europe to Venice and then over the Med to Egypt where we will start our journey down to South Africa.

Egypt: Diving Red Sea, Mount Sinai, Luxor, Valley of the Kings, Ferry down the Nile (Aswan to Wadi Halfa)

Sudan: Begrawiya Pyramids, Meroe Tombs

Ethiopia: Gondor (Africa's "lost Camelot"), Lalibela, Lake Tana

Kenya: Masai Mara, Tsavo National Park, Mount Kenya

Uganda: Gorilla Trekking, Murchison Falls National Park

Tanzania: Lake Victoria, Serengati National Park, Ngorogoro Crater, Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar

Malawi: Lake Malawi, Nyika National Park

Zambia: South Luangwa National Park, Kariba (may head into Zim for a bit?!), Kariba, Livingstone (Vic Falls) for a bit of white water rafting

Botswana: Chobe, Okavango Delta, Makgadikgai Salt Pans

Namibia: Etosha, Skeleton Coast, Sossusvlei, Swakopmund

South Africa: Cape Town, Garden Route, Transkei, Durban

If you are interested in finding out more information, please get in touch with a bit about yourself and your expectations.

A bit about myself: I am a PE Teacher (South African) who has been living in the UK for about 10 years. I have lead walking and canoeing expeditions in the past. I enjoy travelling and have done 3 months round SE Asia solo as well as hitchhiked around Southern Africa. I'm a keen snowboarder, enjoy the odd round of golf and dabble with a bit of photography in my spare time.

African journey

We are a Dutch couple planning to leave in august, with a well equiped Toyota Landcruiser from Holland to S.A.. We will travel the same route as you do but we have to change going through Syria because its not safe now. Is shipping from Venice realy an option?? Can you give us the name of the company?
Shame that you will leave ealyer than we do!! But perhaps we can stay in contact if you like.
Best regards,
Tonnis and Helene

Hey guys!

Sounds great! I have a few things to sort out before I go, so who knows, I may leave in August?! Just need to be back in South Africa by December so would rather leave as soon as possible...

The only way of getting a vehicle to a safe point in Africa to do the East route is Venice to Alexandria (I have done quite a lot of research and there is nothing else!)

Syria was also my first option but obviously no longer...

Keep in touch,

Hi Shara,

Visemar have suspended the Venice-Alex ferry so you may need to take the roro option.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
