Would have been great but I'm leaving Johannesburg in July and only have about 3 weeks. Planning for Namibia and Botswana. If you can leave July then we can hook up. I have to be back at work in August :-(

What vehicle are you using? Bike or 4x4? I am in Tanzania in and around October so we could meet up as I plan to head either north or south, still undecided on route

return trip end of Sept, for couple months tour in Africa

I did a 4 month bike trip from Cape Town to Kenya up east side then around Lake Vic. through Uganda and Rwanda and back south to Malawi then into Zambia, Namibia and back to SA, just returned a month ago. Fantastic!

Planning a return trip end of Sept. for a couple month tour probably from SA (where my 650 Dakar is stored) to Moz, Malawi, Zambia, Congo, Rwanda by ferry up Lake Tanganyka, maybe Uganda/Kenya or else back south through Tanz. Malawi, Zimbabwe, etc.

Cheers
Larry
