No I'm not shipping, I will be driving, but my friends are shipping. For them it was the bureaucracy and security like you say,plus they have no carnet. There is the safety in Nigeria, then the visa hassle in DRC and Angola, so by shipping they jump 3 hurdles at once.
I wouldn't wanna miss out on Cameroun and Congo, although it will be hard. For the moment we don't know who is going to be first in South Africa, it could go either way. Time will tell what the best decision was.

hi bruce,

France to Capetown Oct 2012

Hey guys
We are an english couple, planning a trip down AFrica - hopefully all the way to Cape Town but definitely down the west coast of Africa at least to Ghana- how far we get depends on how much money we have saved by then. We'll be working France this summer and plan to leave France for Morocco in Oct 2012. Interesting to hear about plans to ship from Accra past Angola and DRC as we've read its almost impossible to get visa for Angola. Happy to meet up, ride part of way in Africa. Keep us updated on your plans.

Gemma and Mark

Hi Bruce, I am well into the planning stages of a West route Cape Town to London departing Oct 2012, hopefully arriving home late December 2012 or early Jan 2013. I have planned the route, costings ect.

I had a potential 4 HU companions who have become very good friends of mine but due to various reasons these guys have dropped out one by one. I have an uncertain riding partner who is still to make up her mind. It may be worth reading my thread and web page to see if this is a route/direction you maybe interested in.

Due to our similar timings, this could be a good opportunity for us both.

Where do you live

Best Regards, Tommy?

Travelling Africa in late 2012/2013 too.

Hi Guys,
WE are currently in Bolivia making our way upto Alaska and will be shipping to Europe in September 2012. We are going to make our way South into Northern Africa and will be attempting to cross Libya into Egypt and South, mainly down the East side if anyone is interested in hooking up with us.
