Shipping Land Rover Defender from Dakar to Walvis bay.

Hello!

My name is Caroline and my husband and I are currently in Senegal. After following the news, it seems like we need to ship our car from Dakar to Walvis bay, Namibia (first choice) or Cape town. Does anyone have experience with shipping cars from Dakar to southern Africa? Is there anyone else in Senegal right now who are planning to ship their car to southern Africa?

For the shipment between Dakar-Walvis, we have only found one company which provides this service with offices in both Dakar and Walvis (via Spain); Safmarine. Delmas is handling shipments from Dakar to CT (via Benin). Online, both of the companies says that the shipment will take around 30-35 days.

i would very much appreciate a response!

/Caroline

Thank you!
I already read it, thank you! It is very helpful, I also have your list

We are currently looking for different options. We are 2 cars and are seriously considering to ship it in a 40-container. There would be space for a motorbike. Is someone interested? We want to ship the cars sometime between 29th November-15th December.

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.
