Africa - Europe tour for 100 days

Jump to last reply

My brothers and I are planning a massive trip around Africa and Europe for a total of 100 days.

I post here because I'm looking for help and resources for fellow backpack travellers. I'll make a list of what are plans are and I need advice if this is good or not and if it can be done or not!

The trip itself :

We plan to land in North Morocco or Tanger (and take the ferry to Morroco). From there we thought about either renting a car or buying one and drive down the atlantic cost up to the Côte d'Ivoire. From there, We would then drive back up and make our way in Europe via a ferry in Tunis to Italy.

We would then drive up through Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and end up in France to take a flight back from Charles-de-Gaule. This is what it would look like :

So here are a couple of question we have for you guys :

Is it reasonable to drive that much for a 100 days ?

Google estimates the trip to 203 hours, if we drive 3 hours a day, it would go down to something like 70 days. Of course it would take us much more as we would get lost / mechanic issue / ferry, etc...

Is it better to take a ticket for a round trip or to buy two tickets, one to go and one to comeback separately. Is it even possible to get out of the custom without a return ticket?

Is it better to rent one or many car along the trip or to buy one? Let say we buy a car in Morroco, is it possible to resell it in France before returning?

Do you have links to resources that would help us ensure we have most of what is required for a backpack trip like this?

Currently we have :

A backpack
Sleeping bag
Tent
Ground matress
Knife

There must be many things we forget or we are too optimistic about? Could you point us what you think could be wrong with the way we think and give us your feedbakc on our idea?

Thanks a lot, David, Kevin and Olivier

Note that I intend to update this post based on the answer I get from the people I ask these questions.
