    East and West sides of Congo aren't connected by road though some 4x4 tracks exist through the jungle they aren't always passable depending on how wet its been. But I think the rest of the route is feasible.

      Mandatory reading on this: https://expeditionportal.com/forum/threads/democratic-republic-of-congo-lubumbashi-to-kinshasa.50799/

      There's a Belgian couple that did make the trek in 2007 (I think), took them two months by Land Cruiser.

        Only read the first post. They're bargaining for a $5 tax with a guard. They're obviously looking for trouble. They're lucky to be still alive for sure with this mindset.

        He didn't travel through the most war-torn region (Kivu and the northeast) but still suicidally fricking moronic trip

    North Africa is somewhat doable, just be very careful in Libya. Moroccan-Algerian borders are closed so you'd have to transit through Spain.
    Sub-Saharan countries are dangerous not only because they're war-torn but because they're dirt poor shitholes. Instead of a road trip you should rather do individual travels with a local guide who could show you around and keep you safe.

      Morocco is fine, avoid cities if you can't handle hagglers, but that will be the least of your worries on this trip...

      Western Sahara & Mauritania have a problem with the desert swallowing the road. Prepare to get dust everywhere & watch for landmines due to Sahrawi insurrection zone. You may have to do some sidequests for the nomads there as you'll break down at least once. Mauritania still has chattel slavery btw. Anyone named Bilal is a slave. They are all named Bilal for some reason.

      Senegal is great. Everyone seems very friendly and helpful. Street kids will follow you everywhere and just stare so have some baguettes or something to give them if you want them to leave.

      Guinea is beautiful, especially the Fouta Djallon highlands area, but this is where the roads start to get horrendous, even outside rainy season. It will still be dusty so prepare. The rockiness of the roads will drive you insane.

      Sierra Leone and Liberia will be the beginning of your exhaustion. Good rule of thumb for Africa is avoid young men. They are unemployed and on some sort of drugs ranging from palm wine to meth. Meth is exploding in Africa right now; not something that is talked about much. Mix that with Christianity fused with voodoo where people act possessed and um yeah...either that or you have Muslims. Muslims are great actually; there are problems with terrorism though in northern Côte d'Ivoire, Mali, Burkina Faso, northern Benin, Niger, Nigeria, Chad. Africans are very zealous and superstitious no matter what the religion is.

      You might be denied entry into Côte d'Ivoire if you are French. This is where you will really see the "military checkpoints" of the "youths" ahem...bandits. Expect like 10 checkpoints in a row. If you are based, drive through it but can't say what will happen. Sometimes nothing, other times...

      Cameroon is where you get a mix of horrible roads and checkpoints. Chad, Central African Republic, and South Sudan just simply don't have roads lol. They are swamps with floating huts and territorial hippos. These are barely countries too, just anarchies controlled by warlords with complex relationships to one another. Somalia and Libya as well. Avoid the plum wine drunkards; these can be as young as 12 year old boys who will surround your car and mug you.

      That area of eastern DR Congo is basically full of refugee tents. They are just completely reliant on foreign aid. You will be surrounded and expected to bring supplies.

      The rest is just slums and AIDS but beautiful landscape.

          Romanians would show up at a checkpoint and the military would notice shit missing after the Romanians left.

    I feel like the only way to actually be comfortable doing this is to be an ex-combat arms soldier and bring weapons.

    Kinda wish I'd joined the military. I'm 30 now and my family was very anti-military service my whole life. Which I guess is nice because I'm alive and my knees are good, but also I'm helpless anywhere outside of the nice areas of the 1st world.
