Hi all,

Well, i'm in the midsts of planning a 8-9 month trip to Africa and definitely am in need of some help and advice! I've pretty much sorted out a general itinerary, but there are some large gaps for some countries when it comes to independent trip reports. I'm going to break these out by country so that it's more searchable in the future. At the moment I'm looking for general advice and of course GPS coordinates if anyone out there has them. I'm also going to be in the need for lot of audio so if anyone has some solid sets and would like to share, I'd be willing to take them. Of course I am audio for about half the world to trade if needed. ;-)

As expected this trip is dubbed "No endemic left behind" with the goal of trying to clean up as much as possible. The plan is the buy a 4x4 Toyota Hillux in South Africa in January and then proceed on an itinerary that heads north along the eastern part of Africa before looping back around and doing Namibia/Angola (with plane trips for Ghana, Gabon, Sao Tome).

Angola

Haven't thought too much about Angola yet.

-Anyone been there/have general suggestions?

Gabon

Same as above

-Going to fly up so won't have my truck
-Thoughts on getting around? How important will it be to know french (assuming it'll be very important)
-Any ground operators to contact to sort out vehicles/drivers in each region?
-General thoughts appreciated

Thanks

Ross
