1. Cairo to Cape
A difficult and slow overland route using public transport, yet surprisingly popular among long-term travellers. Cairo to Cape follows a somewhat arbitrary path from Egypt to South Africa (or vice versa), spanning a minimum of eight countries over 10,000 kilometres.
The idea of the route originates from the 19th century, during which attempts were made to build a rail network following the Cape to Cairo red line of British colonies. That was never completed though, neither was a Pan-African highway following a somewhat similar path.
