Post Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania and Mali

London to Mopti, MALI (then Tombouctou/Dogon country)
I've already done this journey by BMW F650GS motorcycle this year but am going back this time with a Toyota 4x4. So, yes, I know the way and can speak French as a native! both very handy out there!

Departure date now fixed - Leaving 19th July 2006
Route Plymouth-Santander then drive through Spain to Algeciras or Tarifa

Looking for other travellers with similar vehicles for part/whole of way- (can also meet in Morocco- GPS on-board!)
I am in the South East (Bromley, Kent)- Possible to meet up before hand-please get in touch by email please

Same time place and theme

Also planning a July departure and similar route. We are two in a Landcruiser 80. SOS villages were our intended theme but I ve had no reply from my attempts to contact them. Do you have any contacts you can share?

In any case it will be good to share info and/or hook up for paret of the trip. Our hoped departure time will be mid july in sh Allah.

Keep in touch or email me for more details.

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. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
