That would be a nice loop, HoweverI think you would need 2 months to do it the way you and I like to ride. If you want to do it faster you will have to take a lot of main roads. Or be extremely fit - that sand takes it out of you like nothing else.

Did you give up on Angola, or are you going to do it with Nam? I still need to do that Doodsakker thingy and I hoped you can figure out for me how the visa crap works  :peepwall:  :)

That's unfortunately why I haven't gone further afield as I just don't have the time off and there no real point just following main roads. There's a report on Advriders about someone going from Tanzania to Moz and how there are no road up there. I get excited just thinking about it.

I haven't completely given up on Angola yet. It's all hanging on if I trailer up to Windhoek or if I travel by bike and then head to Namibia via the  makgadikgadi. Going by train seems to be a no go. But if I travel by bike I won't have time for the Angola leg. I've got a very nice looking route going up to Kunene Lodge from Windhoek keeping close to Etosha, mainly river beds in the mountains which is very enticing. Being my first time up there I may not push myself too much and rather just take it easy and a few more rest days.

When are you planning on going?
