Liz and Peter's African Adventure

We are a couple of 'baby boomers', sixty years young and now retired with enough time on our hands to realise a dream: overlanding around Africa.

Leaving England in December 2007, we will drive through France and Spain, before ferrying across to Morocco and then, heading south, work our way down the west side of Africa.

No doubt we will have a few hairy moments, but we will be taking the rough roads and occasional harsh weather conditions in our stride and look forward to the challenges that this part of the journey will throw up! Once in South Africa, we will be taking a breather and a well needed rest with Liz's brother who has a house near Cape Town.

After we have recharged both our batteries and those of 'Boris the Beast' (our Toyota Landcruiser and home over the coming year) we will then continue our trip, heading North and in general following the Cape to Cairo route.Whether we turn left and right once in Cairo has yet to be decided (suggestions and advice welcome!), but whatever we do and, assuming we reach this point in one piece (!), a huge challenge will have been overcome.

We would like to invite you to follow our journey through this website so you can share our experiences from the relative safety of your sitting room! Please do leave your comments on our guestbook and if you have contacts in any of the countries we're passing through, we'd love to know.

Wish us luck and maybe we'll see you on the road!

We are now home! And frantically trying to write up our experiences whenever time allows... meanwhile, Boris is in need of a new home. He has been a sturdy companion from London to Cape Town and back again, and with a bit of an overhaul, could take on the same journey all over again....Make us an offer via the contact us form or arrange a visit. Thanks for following our journey.... Liz & Peter, August 2010
