    Default Upington to Israel by road.

    Good day.
    Anybody that has done a resent road trip up to Egypt or further?

    Please advise on route, no site seeing, quickest, shortest. Is West Africa the better route?
    International drivers licence, insurance vehicle and human. Availability of visas at borders or if an Africa visa is available. Perhaps a pipedream.
    Will travel by 4x4 twincab diesel Navarra equiped for camping, 4 adults.

    Thanks for input and time in advance.

    as a thought, you wont get to Israel by road going through Egypt, there's a bit of a war going on and you also will be denied entry into Israel itself due to the self same war (unless you on Israeli passports) then you have Sudan to get past on your way

    As to the vehicle - get a carne du passage (which will probably be very expensive) - remember that in many countries along your path you will be importing then exporting the vehicle, be prepared to have loads of stickers, forms, 3rd party and other insurances tacked on, extra fire extinguisher's, extra cash wallets all over to keep the patrols happy

    Also the 4 adults travelling will also need passports that are accepted in the countries you going to drive through, you need to check what's accepted / what's not and what the visa process is, you may also need to get certain medical certificates / vaccines done and some cant be done immediately and may require passports / personal submission at consulates

    The idea you have normally takes a good few months to plan, its not something you can just point north and do - certainly not now

    In light of this I would examine your "WHY" then break it down

    its probably way easier, faster and cheaper to fly in - just not through "Dubai"................. - suggest a Mediterranean nation and then go to Israel - save the fuel / carne du passage fees / time and extra risk

    There is currently no viable route crossing from West Africa to East Africa.
