The Route

We aim to take the western route through Africa and then cross to the eastern side to visit friends and places we know. We will start at Morocco and head through Mauritania, Mali and Niger. From there we will either ‘cut through’ Nigeria or Chad to Cameroon. We will follow the route straight down through Gabon, Congo and DRC where we are hoping that Angola will let us in! From Angola we will head to Namibia and take a ‘left-turn’ into Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania and Uganda. We hope to spend some time in Tanzania and head across to Zanzibar too. From there we are on the home straight including Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Botswana. We hope to enter South Africa through the Kadigadi game reserve and head down to the southernmost tip of Africa.
