Hi guys,

my partner and I have already once travelled through Africa in a 4x4 (from Europe to Cape Town) we would like to do that again, as it was a lot of fun!!! We have a 4x4 Van this time and could take up to 4 more people. Is anyone interested to join us? I think it could be great for you, as you dont need to buy/hire a car and you dont need to be stuck in a huge overlander truck. Also, you can profit of our knowledge.
We like going off the beaten track and explore "less visited" territory.

What do you think? Anyone interested? Send me a message, if you need more info.

Hi Rene,

What is your itinerary? Are you travelling through East Africa or West Africa, this time? Which countries?

we would like to do East coast again, as we have friends in Sudan to visit and still lack a few places to see. Our itinerary is Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia - crossing into Kenya by the "green border" through the Omo Valley and along Lake Turkana, not the Moyale road, then Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa.

Timeframe for now is 2-3 months, but rather longer than shorter, to have time to soak up the continent!

Would like to go around middle of 2013.

Hey Rene,

i plan to go back to east africa in april 2013 and would have a gap of three months. I have been in africa before, have friends in tanzania to meet up and speak some swahili. My plan was to flight to tz and travel around to see some more countries but your idea sounds great and makes me curious! Would love to get some more details and if my timeslot is possible for you?
