You Will Soon Be Able to Drive from Cairo to Cape Town

If you dream of long days on the road traipsing through Africa, then you’ll be glad to know that a new continent-long road will soon allow you to drive from Cairo to Cape Town, the capital of South Africa.

The road to Cape Town will be 10,000 kilometres long, and will pass through nine African countries. The road will stretch from the port of Alexandria on the Mediterranean Sea to Cairo, the official starting point, and will pass through Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and into South Africa to Cape Town.

Egypt’s Ministry of Transport will complete the implementation of the section of the road in Egypt towards the end of 2024, which stretches across 1,115 kilometres and passes through various governorates, including Fayoum, Beni Suef, Minya, Assiut, Sohag, Qena, Luxor and Aswan.
