    Default From Cape Town to Kenya - Advice Needed.

    Hi all,

    First post here, someone on tripadvisor said I might have more luck asking here.

    Me and some friends want to take a road trip from Cape Town to Kenya. The first destination in Kenya being Kilifi. We are from South Africa. We have been to Kenya before but decided this time we want to drive there and spend some time along the way in Botswana/Zambia/Tanzania (possibly Zim on the way back but we have all spent loads of time traveling in Zim so it's not as high up on the list).

    Has anyone done a similar trip before and do you recommend any specific routes? Any advice on which roads are good/bad? I'm struggling to find good recent information online.

    (We have an Isuzu Frontier that we can use for the trip.)

    Thank you!

    Hi, and welcome to the forum. May I suggest that you close this thread and open a new one in the Overland section (in the general part, as you will be doing several countries). You will get a far better response there (give us an idea of the length of the trip, budget etc). Then have a look at Stan and Anne Weakley's blog, http://www.slowdonkey.com/ - they are currently in Ethiopia having travelled up on pretty much the same route you are planning. Then look at some of the trip reports in the country-specific sections in the Overland section.
    This section (Trails, routes etc) is mainly used for reports and info on commercial offroad trails in SA.
    Cheers,
    Tony
