Driving through Africa
Over the last 20 years and after eight trips (and 32 weeks) to
Africa where we picked up a vehicle and drove around a few countries
including South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique and Zimbabwe, as well
as touring and camping in Tanzania, Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, Zaire
(now the Democratic Republic of Congo) and Egypt, we’ve decided
to spend over eight months and drive from Cape Town to London (in
In 2008 we plan to head across southern Europe to Turkey and then strike
north through Russia to North Cape, the most northerly point of Europe.
After that we may head east across Russia to Hong Kong via Mongolia,
or head south through Norway to Spain and across to Morocco and the
west coast of Africa. Who knows?

In 2007 we spent close to two months travelling through
South Africa (we love the place) and Lesotho before we head north from
Cape Agulhas, the southern most point of Africa.
We then plan to travel through Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Malawi,
Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Sudan, Egypt and Libya
to Tunisia where we’ll reach Ras ben Sakka, the northern most point of Africa.
From Tunis a ferry will take us across the Mediterranean Sea to Marseille
in France. A short drive later we’ll be in the UK after traveling
somewhere between 35,000 and 40,000km.
