Lightbulb Getting a Land Rover to Egypt

Hello fellow travellers!

My partner and I are planning a 6 month African adventure beginning next January... We want to go down the East side (the "easy route") - basically Cairo to Cape Town, taking our old Military Ambulance with us!

Does anybody know of any viable options for travelling with our Land Rover to Egypt from Europe...? Are there no ferries at all now from Greece or Turkey? Could it be possible to get to Cyprus and then Alexandria? Or if not... what are the chances of us getting through Libya safely if we ferry to Tunisia!?

Any comments at all would be helpful, we seemed to have stumbled across quite a hefty spanner in the works in our planning!

Thanks,
Anneka
