Due to those bad roads in Congo and Cameroon, we still had to get some things done on Herbie and the camper just as welding broken parts, flushing the gear fluid and getting rid of all the muddy water. However, Herbie’s back on track exploring Africa and we’ve just left Congo by crossing the border to Angola’s exclave, Cabinda.
Originally we were planning to travel through the Democratic Republic of Congo (former Zaire) by crossing the Congo River from Brazzaville to Kinshasa, but we got another idea: Entering Angola’s exclave, Cabinda, and trying to find a boat shipping Herbie, the camper and us directly to Luanda, Angola’s capital.
is there a ferry service from Banana/Muanda DRC to Soyo, Angola? Just curious… it seems like a logical crossing, but maybe not 😉
Hey! We plan to leave out the DR Congo, so we are not informed about any ferry connections to Angola. Right now we are in Cabinda and are going to take a ferry to Luanda (so within Angola). I hope you can find something on the internet! Are you planning to go to Africa next?
We don’t know where is next, but Africa is a possibility. Good luck! We’ll have lot’s of questions for you later…. 😉
Thank’s to a portuguese friend that took a photo of your car yesterday, when he arrived home there in Cabinda and just couldn’t believe in his eyes (he’s also a lover of “old” things), I came to your site and I’m loving it entirely. Hope the best for you and Gute Reise 🙂
Thanks for your message!
Indeed we are still here in Cabinda, parking/camping right in the middle of town.
Maybe your friend knows Antonio Diaz, who we are staying with!?
All the best from Angola, Domi
