Southern Africa

I know this is short notice but...
Is anyone interested in a 1 month round trip of Southern Africa (or is there someone who would want a riding buddy who is planning similar)
Start would around end of Feb or Early March
Route would be Durban- to Capetown- Namibia- Windhoek.
Victoria Falls and back. about 6500 km (or shorter if need be.

When are you planning to do it? I am torn between the long way up from Cape Town to London via the east coast, or doing a short trip but instead going:

Cape Town, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Cape Town.

Depends on money and if I can keep my online business alive while I do it. Would be looking at leaving in a month or two.

Hello Tony
plans have changed a bit since I posted the threat. Via this website I met a guy from Port Alfred who wanted to do a swap with me. He wanted to surprise his wife with a trip through Australia on my bike and I could use her KLR for a month. His wife did not know about it though. Once she found out things chenged and the arrangement was cancelled. So here I was with a flight booking and no bike. I contacted my brother who live 2000 km from here and asked if he was interested to join me. He is not a biker and cant ride. So I am still arriving in Jburg on March 23 and spent a month in RSA and visit the Vic falls before going south to Capetown- however- unfortunately- we will be using 4 wheels instead.
I am in need of a riding buddy to come along with me for an unusual ride from Vladivostok to Europe. I paced a message on this sitebut no takers. Plenty of traffic going west to east but not east west. I plan to start in June.
After finishing the trip I plan te leave to bike with a friend in Holland or Ireland and plan to do Europe to RSA in 2015.
Perhaps a consideration for you
Hope to hear from you\
kind regards

Pity that's the case. Aside from seeing the girls, I'm not overly keen on riding through Russia at the moment. I think I'm going to stick with the Cape Town to ... trip for the moment. However, if I smartly decide to save and plan more I may be up for the Europe to Cape Town trip in 2015. Good luck all the same.
