Hitchhiking from France to COngo

Hello everybody!

I'm working on a project for this summer: I would like to go from France to Congo by hitchhiking and then live at least a month with the Pygmees in the forest. I need to have information about hitchhiking in Africa.

For exemple, I cannot find how long I will need to cross all the countries to Congo. (I plan to go through Marrocco, Mauritania, Mali, Burkhina Faso, Benin, Nigeria, Cameroun and Congo.

I don't know if I have to have my visas before my trip or if it's shipper to arrange it with the gards on the border.

I could use all transportation like car, plane, boat or camel but I don't know where to find a good map in order not to be lost!

I heard that hh in Africa is really safe but I don't really know the political situation in the coutries where I want to go.

So if you can help me, please answer here or send me a message here: [email protected]
