London to Cape Town East Route - LC80

Hi fellow travellers!

I'm hoping to drive LC80 down from London to Cape Town via the East, route across the Med via to RoRo from Mersin to Port Said .

Hoping to leave London in December 2012 or January 2013, drive to Italy, probably ferry across Greece to Turkey and then RoRo to Egypt.

Route subject to change but keen on the following:
Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi (Mozambique poss), Zambia, Bots, Namibia and down to the beautiful Cape Town!

I'm a 34yo girl, looking for travel partners as would like to fill seats - preferably 1x doctor, 1x mechanic and 1x cook - don't all shout at once!

Also keen to hook up with other vehicles doing similar trip to fill up the ferry crossing into Sudan, and to cruise with!

Anyone got any idea how long it takes to get a Sudanese visa - hear it takes around 2 months?!

If anyone's got any more information on the RoRo, or the Sudanese visa (time frame), I'd be very grateful.

Right, so who's keen to join me?

Hello, I'm leaving to do a very similar route and will be setting off just about a month ahead of you, but returning to uk for 2 weeks in oct so not impossible that we might be in some countries at the same time. I'm also leaving from London solo. If you want to pm me then would be fab to exchange details and chat. Good luck with the prepping! Claire
