Name Africa Adventure

Dear all,
I've always wanted to explore Africa, but going alone is a daunting task. At the same time, I do not fancy much going with "touristy" pre-packaged plans.

My focus is both exploration and culture. I wanna get a real feel for this mystic land.

The idea is rent/buy a 4x4 and camping gear, and explore the continent.

Sample plan:

- Meet in Gibraltar or Morocco.
- Find a bargain priced 4x4, load up with the essentials. In the meanwhile we'll fill the downtime exploring whatever MOroccan city we find ourselves with.
- sample itinerary: Morocco -- Western Sahara - Mauritania (cost only) - Senegal - Guinea all the way down to South Africa.

What to expect:

I want to do this trip once, and do it right. This mean you should budget for 3 to 5 months minimum. The road is long and fraught with dangers, both environmental, political all the way down to war, famine and so forth. This is not a 5 star resort in the Maldives we're going for, and one of the chief reasons I'm not attempting this alone.

We'll split the bill for everything, from VISA to the Jeep to food to accomodation.
