Hi Ian

Well, this isn't exactly a mainstream routing. We don't have any info from travellers who have done it. Is there some reason you're starting from Ghana?

My first look would be at DAS Air Cargo (part of ANA, which is UK based), has a website and scheduled flights between Accra and Entebbe, Uganda. E-mail: sales@ana-aviation.com or call them in the UK +44 (0)1293 547737. Their website is at www.dasair.com.

My second look would be one of the country airlines:

Kenya - Country Code +254
Kenya Airways (KQ/KQA), Nairobi, Tel: (2) 823000, (2) 823666, Fax: (2) 823488

Ethiopia - Country Code +251
Ethiopian Airlines (ET/ETH), Addis Ababa Airport, Tel: (1) 612222 Ext 215, (1) 232, Fax: (1) 615271, e-mail: ealtele.com@net.et

Given a choice of which country to fly into, I would recommend Kenya vs. Ethiopia from a paperwork/bureaucracy point of view.

If that doesn't bear fruit, here are some contact details in Ghana, some even have e-mail! But I haven't been able to get through to any of their websites.

Country Code: +233

Hi Susan
Thanks for the information.
The reason for the info is i plan to go from Morocco to South Africa. Ive gathered that travelling through Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Sudan on an bike is difficult/impossible as well as visa availability.

Thanks
Ian

Hi Ian

You might find some useful information on Peter and Kay Forwood's site. They went all through Africa in the early part of 2001 two-up on a Harley Davidson. Their route was the opposite direction to yours, but included Uganda, Congo, Central African Republic, Cameroon, Nigeria, Niger, Benin and Togo to Ghana. They also popped into Chad en route. http://members.ozemail.com.au/%7Eforwoodp/

But it did take them almost 4 months to do this section of Africa, and some pretty horrific roads, so that's not necessarily a recommendation for the route.

Good luck and safe travels!
