Preparation

A short time has been spent planning this trip; with most evenings and weekends spent applying for visas, sorting out the necessary paperwork, planning a rough route and getting the vehicle ready to go.

Visas we have arranged in advance are Libya, Egypt, Ethiopia and Kenya. The rest we will get en-route.

Car insurance is pricey for the trip, but found that Locktons gave us the best deal incase of any disasters.

…. and Back Up Again!

It’s a bit harder to do much planning etc. when you aren’t starting from your home country, so on the way back we will be applying for necessary visas and deciding our route as we go.  We ran out of space in our passports, so we sent off to the FCO in S.A. for new passports.
