Cape Agulhas




We have reached the southernmost point in Africa where the Indian Ocean meets with the Atlantic ocean. There is only one way to go now - up North!

It has been a hectic past week. We have ridden over 1,000 KM in and around Cape Town searching for gear. We are now ready to start riding north along the coast of SA and then into Mozambique.

So far South Africa has exceeded all my expectations. The people are extremely friendly, the scenery amazing and the roads spectaculars.

We have started to come across survivors of malaria and friends of people that have died of malaria. The stories are sad beyond to what words can describe.

Our first host Johan spent 20 days in coma from celebral malaria. He made it very clear to us that the most dangerous thing in this continent is a tiny mosquito - no the big 5 or the people or the trucks.


We plan to stay in Cape Agulhas a couple of nights and start editing the pictures and videos. We will soon update our blog.
