Welcome to the Home Page of the GlobeRider's Cape to Cairo Expedition 2016 Live!Journal!
GlobeRiders Cape to Cairo Expedition 2016 is what we call a custom tour. In this case there are 3 riders that together with us have made a custom program for the journey from Cape Town, South Africa, to Cairo, Egypt.
Yves, Mike and Fred have all ridden with GlobeRiders on one or more of our adventures. This time they wanted a journey that was a catered journey, catered to what they wanted out of a journey for themselves. Follow us as we ride through the desserts of Namibia, Victoria Falls, Lake Malawi, visiting indigenes tribes in Tanzania, gorillas in Rwanda, Maasai and Safari in Kenya, Lalibella in Ethiopia, camel market in Sudan and finally the pyramids of Egypt.
If you too would like to discuss a custom tour with us contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
This Expedition's Live!Journal will consists of four Chapters:
- A new Chapter page will be added to this website as soon as we get enough material from the riders. Each Chapter will consist of stories and photos from the road, submitted by participants en route, a sort of travel blog (or travelog) if you will. Chapter Navigation Menus at the top and bottom of each page allow you to quickly jump from one page of the Live!Journal to another.
- When each new Chapter is "published" to the website, we'll send an email newsletter Dispatch, informing subscribers to our newsletters that new content is available in the Live!Journal. Each Dispatch will contain a photo and short summary of the week, and clickable links that will take viewers directly to the relevant Chapters or other pages on our website.
Our Live!Journal gives those of you who couldn't join us this year, to include family and friends of the participants, the opportunity to take a "virtual" tour with us. It also captures and preserves the tour for our participants, creating a scrapbook of their adventure on the web that they can refer to for years to come. And of course, we hope that a select few of you may be inspired to join GlobeRiders on a future adventure.
The "map", seen below, is the real-time Tracking map of the Expedition. The location updates are a live feed from our DeLorme inReach SE Satellite GPS Messenger.
In the Chapter navigation Menus, Chapter links which are blue are clickable, those in gray color are yet to come.
As always, should you have any questions, comments, requests, or simply want to say "hi" to any of us, all you need to do is click here to send us email.
