There is more than you think to organising a motorbike trip through Africa. Whether it’s finding the right motorbike, organising the carnet de passage, coordinating the shipping, planning the route or negotiating the time off work…the list is endless. Here we have tried to capture everything you need to know to plan a trip! A great source of information is the Horizons Unlimited page. Another useful website includes this Crossing Africa – a SA couple who took 90days to cross Africa on a couple of 200cc Motomias. Make sure you read the usual books – Jupiter’s Travels by Ted Simon and Lois on the Loose!
