Freighting from Nairobi to UK?

Hi

I'll be in Nairobi soon and want to ship/fly my bike back to the UK. Surely I'm not the first person to do this? Does anyone have any contacts? Has anyone done this recently. I have one quote (£1600 by sea, £2100 by air).

Thanks

Dom

Chris at Jungle Junction should be able to help you with transport at a reasonable price and has helped ship bikes a few people I met.
Most of the shipping agents work out of Mombasa, I have a good contact there - 'Irene W Mbugua' at Renex Logistics who may be able to help with a partial container load.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
