Self drive starting South Africa ending Ethiopia

Jump to last reply

My son and two friends are intending on buying a 4x4 in S.A. and travelling up East Africa ending up in Ethiopia. They have 5 months.
I would appreciate any tips or suggestions including:
Where is the best place to find all the info regarding border crossings?
We have heard there is a problem with a foreigner buying a car in s.a. and then crossing all these borders, is this true?
Are there any countries you would avoid for safety reasons?
Which are the best maps to buy?
thanking you,
