Wanting to Join 4WD from Wadi Halfa to Dongola or Khartoum in May/June 2009

Hi, my fiancee wants to come with me on my XT600 from London to Cape Town. I'm concerned about being 2 up on the bike from Wadi Halfa to Dongola because of the sand and corrugations.

Could someone please PM me if she could join your 4WD from Wadi Halfa to Dongola or on to Khartoum? After that, we'd be happy to ride along into Ethiopia if you like?

HI Mike
As the bikes often go on smaller boats/ferries than the 4X4s you might not have too much choice without some waiting around. If all else fails there is also the train as another option for your girlfriend, take first class all the way through to Khartoum, it is quite an experience.
Good luck
On the road from...I'm not sure any more

Hi Tiffany. Consensus is that Tina will be hotter in a train, more physically battered on an old unsprung bus, and will ultimately miss out on a classic route for adventure touring from Wadi Halfa to Dongola. Who am i to argue?

People have advised that most of the route will be manageable 2-up on the XT600E. And that she'll only have to walk a few hundred metres in the sand. My biggest fear is that her period will coincide with a 50 degree day and deep sand, she'll blame me, and i'll hear the Valkyries overhead! I fear her more than the trip itself.

i think you will meet travellers on the road you can ask.
or you will ask a sudanese to bring you (or her) to khartoum (or dongola, i think the asphalt begins before khartoum)
good luck,
i will do this route end of march/april this year, maybe, we will see us.
