Sweden-South Africa

We are a couple on a GS1150 ADV planning to go from Sweden to South Africa around september or late april next year. Havent decided when to go yet.

I am a 33 year old photographer travelling with my wife who is a journalist. We will make a little bit of a worktrip out of this aswell. We have been doing alot of touring before but only in europe.

We are now looking some other people that might be interested in joining us. Would be fun.

Niclas & Caroline

Hi guys.

Welcome aboard. We have no fixed plans right now. Quite openminded. Rough plan so far is to go down the westcoast and try to enter Guinea. Then over to the eastcoast and down to Capetown. Then we are thinking about ship the bike from Mombasa to Calcutta and go back home again through Russia. I think this route could be great fun. What do you think?
I am in SE Asia now but will be home in about a month again. If this turns out to be serious I think we should get together this summer for some camping over a week or so.

Hey mcfisto.

That´s the spirit. No flying! Our plans is going slowly forward. We have decided to go from Sweden sometime in march-april depending on the weather and spend two months or so on the road. Do you have any suggestions on the route? We are so far about five persons that are interested in going. What are you driving?
