    Default Cameroon to Congo

    We plan to drive through Cameroon to Congo like showed here on the map:




    I don`t even know exactly - if there is a route available..

    Google Maps say no, Tracks4Africa says no, OSM say no. But that don't tell us much - because there seems most roads to be missing. Bing sees there many possible ways.

    Our "plan B" will be to drive through Gabon to Congo, the Visa we should be able to get on the border, far i know.

    Does someone knows something about the pink marked area?

    Cool

    Hi,

    These guys did it via Gabon earlier this year:

    www.aux4vents.eu

    If you do not understand French, please tell me I will try to help you..(can do in German as well)..

    According to their report, there should be a pontoon crossing the Congo to Kinsasha..

    The road you look for (avoiding Gabon) is clearly shown on Garmin's World Map..The problem in that area is rather what means a road ??

    I guess then it exists as well on Garmap's Subsaharian Street Maps (sorry, my copy is in my CF-18 somewhere in Zambia in my rig)..

    Cheers...

    Thank you much for your help! I dont find the route the vent on their homepage?

    But i found a Blog of someone, who cross this area nearly the same way we plan it:

    http://www.nomad-adventure.com/categ...o-brazzaville/

    Its an excellent read!

    So there should be a way to cross the area. We dont have exact entry points, but we will find a way.
