We are starting to think about our biggest car challenge yet, 10,000 miles from Birmingham to Cape Town. The record is 10 days, 3 hours and 16 minutes completed in a LandRover Discovery.
We have a number of planning tasks to do in the next few months:
– Choose a vehicle to take
– Find a route (that is safe or safeish)
– Choose a charity to raise for
– Organise visa’s
There are a number of routes that maybe possible, the problem is the changing security environment in lots of countries along the way. A country that maybe relatively safe now while we are planning maybe in a full blown war by the time we set off, so I guess the key word here is likely to be flexibility.
England, France, Italy, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Botswana and South Africa.
