Hello,

I am planning an adventurous year starting Jan 2011 and the first port of call will be Africa. North to South, but undecided as to the route.

Regards

Patrick

Hi all

Current plan for us is to go down west coast of Africa to RSA. From London. We will be in a Toyota Landcruiser 90 travelling light - and planning on 3 months to do the trip.

Plan is departing around Jan/Feb 2011.

Would love to meet up with anyone who is in the area for the more difficult sections.

Landy 110 HT up for Grabs

Guys, just completed the north to south trip. We had to leave our Landy 110 down in Johannesburg as we do not have dosh to ship her back. If you know of anyone interested in a 110 Defender and what to travel south to North it would be great if you could point them in our direction mail@mk2a.com. The car is solid and will not give you any hassles if you look after her
