On this page, I will post updates that relate to the overland journey from Europe to West-Africa.
Because I regularly visit English and French forums on this topic: A lot, but not all information comes from there. The objective is to see at a glance if there have been significant procedural changes or otherwise relevant information .
If you believe important information is missing on this page, you very are welcome to notify me through the form on the contact page. Your contribution will be highly appreciated.
