Cape Town to Europe 2017

I am looking at doing a trip from South Africa to Europe along the East Coast of Africa leaving around April/May 2017.
Any travelers planning a similar trip ?

How long are you planning to take?
We've already set off, but we're doing a bit of a funny loop at the start.
Maybe we can hook up along the way?
Oh, we're in a land cruiser, not in a bike, by the way.

I am in Durban and am considering riding to the UK, up the East Coast. Are you still planning on doing a trip?

You might catch up with these guys: Current Location: Heading North A journey promoting Peace, Hope and Reconciliation through Diversity and Conservation Awareness.
They left 2 weeks ago, from Cape Town to North Cape.

I am! I'm in the process of getting my bike on a boat from the States to Durban in the next couple weeks, so I'll likely be heading North around April. My intention is to spend some time in Kenya teaching along the way, though.

I'm looking to do it in the middle of the year... but I've got no further than quitting my job! Will be in a Land Rover though...

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 all over the world with the help of volunteers; 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, or ask questions on the HUBB. 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. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
