Anyone interessted in driving our car back from South-Africa?

Hello everyone,

Me and my boyfriend left in Februari and are making our way to South Africa with our Toyota Landcruiser (2000, Colorado).

After South Africa we would like to go to Australia, we were planning to take our car with us, but as it’s difficult and the car is only allowed to stay one year in Australia (and we wanna stay upto 2 years) we very sadly can’t take her with us .

So now we’re looking if anyone might be interested in driving her back? We started in Europe, but the car doesn’t have to drive back there, she can also go somewhere else, as after Australia we can fly wherever we want. (but preferable out of the Africa continent).

We’re planning on arriving august 2014 in South Africa and we’re planning on staying there another 6 months. So anyone who might be interested in doing a trip starting between august 2014 and februari 2015, give us a shout! Please e-mail us eef.lenaerts@gmail.com

Maybe the rules have changed, but it was possible not so long ago to extend your carnet after arriving in Aus.

Hi All,

Thanks for your replies.
Looks like my e-mail setting weren't correct so never received a message to let me know that we had replies... sorry!

The car is still available, she will be free from June 2013 in Ethiopia, (but if no-one wants to start from Ethiopia she will come back to South Africa)
We will be leaving Africa in 2015 and are planning to go back to Europe in 2017.

It's just that we don't want to sell the car, but we can't send it home yet, as no-one at home will drive with it, and we don't want her to stand still for 2 years...

So wherever your dreams takes you, she will take you!

Please pm me for more details or send me an e-mail via our site (as it's easier on the road to read my mail than the forum).

Eef and Dries
