Camps

 

Wie und wo übernachtet man auf einer solchen Reise durch Afrika?
- Ganz einfach: auf mehr oder weniger tollen Campingplätzen, sofern vorhanden (im südlichen und östlichen Afrika kein Problem), in Missionen, wo es immer friedlich, sauber und ruhig ist,  oder aber man sucht sich einen tollen einsamen Platz im Bush. Wir fühlten uns in Afrika auch während unseren Bushcamps in aller Regel sehr sicher. Allerdings mussten wir die mühsam gefundene Einsamkeit häufig innert Kürze mit unzähligen neugierigen und schaulustigen Einheimischen teilen. Nicht immer einfach, nach einem anstrengendem Reisetag ...

 

Wir haben hier die Übernachtungsplätze in Afrika zusammengestellt, die wir weiter empfehlen können - alle versehen mit Anfahrtsbeschreibung oder GPS-Koordinaten und einem kurzen Kommentar zum Platz, inklusive "hunderelevanter" Informationen. Für eine breitgefächerte Benutzerfreundlichkeit ist die Zusammenstellung in englisch verfasst...

Tunisia is great for bushcamping! Many great places and nobody stop by. We bushcamped all the way up inland from Libyan borader to Tunis.

Beautiful drives:

Sakket Canyon near Gafsa N 34 21.773 / E 9 13.135, on over a beautiful pass with amazing view between Bou Saad (El Guettar)and Sened (best south-north, north side is 4x4 road, beautiful bushcampplaces on north side

 

 

 

 

Libya

We got a 10 days visa easily within 12 days from the libyan consulate in Alexandria (N 31 11.851 / E29 54.728). Same at embassy in Cairo. Since we could keep our passports during waitingtime and just hand them in for issuing the visa at the end, we could travel around Egypt while waiting.
We didn’t need a travelagency or guide. Officers at border are very helpful in doing the paperwork and organising numberplates and money chance in town (no other help needed). Visa 75.- E£ (=12.-$), numberplates 115 LD (100.-$) but 100 LD back at exit Libya. Bring some fiches (papers with personel datas, best in Arabic) for checkpoints
