We, (wife and I) plan to ride from Jburg to Italy December - January, so we can let you know all the mistakes we made on the way. will post at "horizonsunlimited.com/tstories/thode

Much is in flux with the planning now as I do not yet know if we will be able to get visas for Libya or need to find another route.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but  rather a slide in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body totally worn out and screaming "Woo Hoo what a ride"

Yes we were in Zambia, New Years at the falls, then Malawi, Moz, Zim and back to start in Jburg. Will pick up bike in m/l late Nov. and travel the Riff north.  Have friend in Italy where I hope to store bike till we can return for the next leg.

Hi Rustfontein, my son and I did a 7 country 13 500km trip in Africa. Our trip was a 1000km further than the Cape to Cairo route. You can read our RR under >Ride Reports>Long Tours>To The Equator and back in 40 days. On the last page I have all the cost and statistics. Enjoy the planning.
