    Hi Dan!

    My name is Rosalía. My husband and I were doing the same trip as you. We are currently in Dakar and we would like to go to Bissau, Guinea Conakry, Mali, CI, ect. Wet season has already started and we want to know how roads are in Guinea before getting there… We drive a 4×4 with cellule so we carry a lot of weight. What do you think could be better going to Mali trough Guinea or Senegal? Thank you very much!! Best regards.

      Hey Rosalia,

      Great to hear from you! Awesome yo hear you are on the road too!
      The roads in Guinea are B.A.D. Some of the worst I have seen. Massive potholes on the paved roads, and non-paved roads are very rocky. Not often muddy, more rocky. It is, however, spectacularly beautiul and I highly recommend it. Personally, I think you should go, and if the roads are too horrible for you, just stick to the highways – once you get about half way to the East, the highway is brand new and perfect.

      Have fun, let me know if you need any more info!
      -Dan
