I am going to be leaving London around September 20th for an extended overland tour of West Africa, and then going on to Ethiopia and East Africa, finally ending in SA. I figure it will take about 8-9 months. If you are interested in joining me, or have similar plans, please contact me. I will be in London from Sept 16th on.
I am an older American, speak French well enough to stay out of trouble and am very accommodating to others. I would love to hear from others who have done this trip recently and what were their experiences. I expect to use public transport, unless we can meet someone with a vehicle.
I have created a trip with the Travellerspoint Planner, if you want to look at it. Hope to hear soon.
