Happy customer

I was entirely satisfied. The fact that a journey of some 1600km, in varying weather and traffic conditions, took an hour longer than scheduled is nothing to complain about.

Henricus D.November 18, 2019 | 

Africa has a problem with timekeeping. That can certainly improve. The quality of the shops at stopovers and pickups can also improve. It seems like some one purposefully picked all the worst places to stop.
