Cairo to Cape Town by Motorcycle

This is a vintage travel adventure that took place in 1962 as two 19-year-old neighbors and high school classmates from Ohio embarked on a journey of a lifetime:  a motorcycle journey from Cairo, Egypt, to Cape Town, South Africa.

The pair visited most of the ancient ruins of the Nile Valley, slept atop the Great Pyramid, traversed the wild Sudan, climbed the Mountain of the Moon, encountered wild and remote tribes, rode among the animals in the Serengeti during the great migrations, and witnessed colonial Africa prior to the enormous changes that were to come.

This is a memoir of a vanished Africa, as well as an illuminating story of Africa today, based on the author's ongoing visits in later years. The personal narrative covers politics, history, and the wonder of experiencing this vast continent on two wheels for 15,000 miles over African roads.
