THE PLAN FOR 2021 IS DIFFERENT FROM THE PLAN FOR 2015/2018, BUT CAN SERVE AS A BROAD BASELINE 


Background: After the planning for 2015/2018 and all the wars going on,  we then decided to take a flight to Russia to see for ourselves.

That a nice surprise and we are very happy, with the proposed route and also the guides that will help us via their countries.

Most of them been guests of ECO4X4AFRICA in Africa when they have visit us


The briefing, Q & A went very well on January 2020 and we got 11 couples interested to go this trip IN 2022.

 

The trip was changed and the main factors for consideration were

1. We must be in Tanzania at the best time to experience the Serengeti Migration

  2. Most guests want to drive clock wise around Lake Victoria to visit the Gorilla’s

 

  3. Sudan and Egypt is not accessible by self-drive vehicle and the price off the Carnette in Egypt


4. The winter in Russia is coming from the east (Siberia) and we want to be there in summer and must leave before 1 September 2020


5. We tour from east to west and end phrase 2 in Lisbon


6. From Lisbon we want to drive via West Africa back to Cape Town

THE PLANNING CONTINUE IN 2020/2021

THE PLAN IS NOW ON THE TABLE AND CONFIRMED - NOW FOR THE CITY TO CITY RESEARCH AND PLANNING - DONE
