Cape Town to Nairobi.
[Land Rover delivery from South Africa to Kenya]
[February – March 2014]
[South Africa, Lesotho, Botswana, Zambia, Tanzania & Kenya]
Following an email from Escape the City, I discovered a British expat in Nairobi would like the Land Rover he had left in Cape Town delivered to him. With my friend Bryce, a helicopter pilot from British Columbia I had met on the Latitude Expedition, we drove the vehicle, a rare Defender 100 from the southern tip of South Africa up through Lesotho, Botswana, Zambia and Tanzania. Another friend Kendra joined me for the last push to the Kenyan capital, passing through the Ngorongoro Crater and visiting Ol Doinyo Lengai, the only volcano in the world with black liquid lava.
Technical faults, customs nightmares and run ins with the wildlife ensued. It was a six-week drive that is unforgettable.
