Trip to Africa?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone for an ARRSE crawl in Africa?

    No, seriously though. I know there are specialised forums for this sort of thing but I would like to know if anyone here has ever been or intend taking a trip to the African continent either as part of an organised group/tour thing or by their own means? Maybe as part of a mil exped?

    If so, what challenges did you encounter?

    It is something I've recently thought more and more about and would like to do in a couple of years. I think I have the right vehicle for it now.


  2. Tried, tried, tried, couldn't resist.

    I have a map of Africa on my mattress :)

  3. And your pants. MDN sent me photos......
  4. Oh by the way sweetheart, there will be room for one more so if you know of anyone just PM me. Slaggier the better. Ta.
  5. You may regret that statement once someone else informs you I am a 17.5 stone male, tattooed, skin headed ex NCO :) And so is Dale :)
  6. I'm regretting it already. Just thankful I didn't post it in the NAAFI. :roll:
  7. G/F done a tour of SA and a few others last year I'll get some info off her who she done the tour with she really enjoyed it visited a few places and not just SA
  8. What do you have in mind? PM me.
  9. Thank you brettarider, I look forward.

  10. Just sent you a PM cuchulain, thanks.

  11. Where in Africa? i have lived in Africa since 1975
    its big e mail me
  12. Since the early 80s I have wanted to go to Zimbabwe, it was a prospering country then. Really not thought about exactly where, just go.
  13. PL,
    Asked the G/F about her trip heres what she said (cut and pasted from email as I'm too lazy to type) :D

    I went to Africa with a tour company called Exodus the trip I went on was Capetown to Johannesburg, would definitely recommend it it was a fantastic experience, they've got lots of other trips similar as well, not cheap but you're well looked after.

  14. Ahem. Cough.
  15. I've done a couple of aid convoys in Algeria. Badly prepared vehicles and bored customs officials are the greatest pain in the arrse.

    Prior planning and all that....
