Hi Rastaman

It's GBP £3910 (just over 50,000 Rand at current prices) for the whole 7 month trip, but you can do shorter sections. The relevant page is here, I could probably improve the navigation!

http://www.climbhotrock.com/Africa%20we ... sprice.htm


For that you get not only your transport but also accommodation and 2 meals a day. And our expertise of what, and where, to climb the length and breadth of Africa.

cheers - hope to hear from you soon!

Dunc

Hey Dunc,

From the looks of the map you pass through Rwanda between Kampala and Lilongwe? Do you guys go to any area here? If you need some beta on the area I can provide some.

Any info you can give us about this area will be enormously appreciated. The section you've highlighted has the Ruwenzori, bouldering S of Lake Victoria, Kilimanjaro, \"Little Switzerland\" (mountains en route from Arusha to Dar), beach bouldering in Zanzibar, more bouldering in the huge boulder fields on the Tanzania / Malawi border, some climbing behind the chitimba waterfalls in Malawi and then moving into the big walls of Mozambique and Southern Malawi.

I'm sure there's loads that we're missing - where do you recommend?

Thanks

Dunc
