I've just read your post Re: trip through Africa and noticed that I missed your meeting by about a week...damn!
Anyway, I work at The Royal Star and Garter Home on Richmond Hill by the gate into the park, and am planning a similar trip of my own on behalf of the charity.
At the moment the trip is at the planning stage with a possible departure in about a year. The charity cares for disabled Ex-service Men and Women and I would be undertaking the trip to raise money for the Home. As we are a military charity, the idea would be to visit as many sites enroute, across Africa where the Victoria Cross has been won in the past. The locations of these are generally along the coastlines of countries such as Libya, Tunisia, Ghana, Eritrea, South Africa etc.
I intend to visit as many of these sites as is possible and hope to have sponsorship donated for each site visited.
If you are in the vicinity in the near future and feel like having a quick chat about your and my plans, email me at: link above
I look forward to hearing from you soon,
