African Cup of Nations

Day 134,135,136: (going to) LibrevilleWe get the entry stamp easily at Bitam and follow the road to the Oyo where there must be a hotel where we can sleep. We find a strange little motel where each room has its own parking place closed of by a big shower curtain....

Miniature Africa

Day 120-122: West-Africa’s worst roadCameroon has it all; desert, savanna, rainforests, beaches and volcano’s. It’s like a miniature Africa and we have been looking forward to it all trip, especially after Nigeria! The road from the border of Nigeria to...

You’re welcome!

Day 108: Police dominationWe are standing in front of the green and white beam separating us from entering NIgeria when a car comes speeding past. "Follow that vehicle!" screams the guy operating the beam. Uhhh, ok. We drive through a village and out again...

Merry Christmas from Lome!

Day 98-101: Enjoying the Lome expat life Luckily Vivian was in town and happy to invite us to stay at her place. We still had to get there though and it was already 2.30 PM. Tomas read in the LP that they would stop issuing visas at the border at 5 so we were cutting...

Mali

Car troubles in Senegal

Day 66-70: St. Louis to DakarAfter the good reports Tomas’ friend Craig gave us about this place we simply had to stay at the Zebrabar. An amazing campsite run by Ursula, Martin and their two kids on the beach south of St. Louis. After a slow start in the morning we...

Car VS Desert: Mauritania

Day 55: Border BureaucraticsLeaving Morocco wasn’t as easy as getting in. We had to report ourselves at 3 different post: police, customs and military and they all asked the same things. As I am the owner of the car and the only one who speaks french I am in charge of...

Maroc

Day 30-34: North eastern MoroccoEven though the cross over the Channel of Gibraltar was very short, the difference compared to the other side is significant. Ceuta is officially still Spain so the border is just outside of town. As soon as we get there we’re crowded...
