I'm planning a trip from South Africa (leaving Johannesburg or Pretoria) to Morocco, or as close as I can get in a year's time. The idea is to cycle up to Nairobi and perhaps fly across to Yaounde - depending on whether the area in between is safe to cycle through - and then to go up the 'bulge' of West Africa ending in Rabat. I'm planning on leaving either in late December 2004 or early January 2005, flying back by the same time a year later.

I would much prefer to have some company on at least parts of the trip, than to do the whole thing solo. Anyone interested?
