London to Cape Town on a XT

Hi there,

I will be starting my trip in mid Feb next year. I plan to head south to Morocco,Mauritania, Senegal, Mali, B.Faso, Ghana, Nigeria then get across to Kenya (still need to figure that one out)down the east coast of Africa all the way to South Africa. I am looking to travel with others or to meet up with people along the way.

[/b][/QUOTE]Hi Ed,
There are two of us departing on the 4 March 2002, like you we plan to go from West to East (all the way if possible), then zig zag down the East coast to South Africa.

What route did you use to get to C.A.R? did you have any problems along the way so far?

How did the Sudan application get on?

I´m also on my way to Morocco arriving in Melilla Saturday 9 Feb and planning to travel SW down the boarder to the Atlantic and who knows where else.
I´m riding light on an XR400 and would like to meet or ride with others along the way.

Hope to hear from anyone in the area please email me.

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.
