Obtaining visas

Obtaining visas is a vital part of any adventure.  This links below will provide you with information on our experiences of collecting our various stamps and passport stickers.

In general, travelling in West Africa required visas to be obtained in advance from embassies along the way. In southern and East Africa, the majority of visas were obtained hassle-free at the border.

    Hi S and O.
    Reading your blog/web page is just wonderful!
    My boyfriend and I are pretty much doing the exact trip as you in June/July this year…..we are super excited and reading your info is helping us tremendously!
    A quick question…what passport are you traveling on? I am traveling on a SA passport and finding that getting a Moroccan visa to be quite a mission, I am marrying to avoid going back to SA for visa’s, so any info would be wonderful!
    Thank you so much…..and good luck with the rest of your travels!
