North Africa west-to-east and Arabia
Starting Jan 2010, I'll be traversing the Sahara west to east and doing a loop of the Arabian peninsula and back into Africa afterwards.
Any adventurers/overlanders wanting to hop along for a part of the stretch are very welcome.
Total time is around 6 months. I'll be travelling on a KTM 640. The exact route will need to be flexible depending on the current situation in each country. All part of the fun.
Possible route: Holland down to Marocco - Mauritania - Mali - Algeria - probably Tunisia - Lybia - Egypt - Jordan - Saudi - UAE - Oman - Yemen - Djibouti - Ethiopia - Kenya - Tanzania.
I would love to get through Lybia coming from the south. Who knows.
