OUR YEAR IN AFRICA

ABOUT OUR TRIP

Makgadikgadi Pans, Botswana

In February 2009 Malcolm & Judi Collis shipped their Expedition 2003 Land Rover 110 TD5 Defender from the UK to Cape Town with the intention of spending one year travelling around the wilderness areas of southern Africa. They visited:

 

South Africa

Botswana

Zambia

Tanzania

Zanzibar

Malawi

Mozambique

Swaziland

South Africa again

Zimbabwe

Botswana again

Namibia

South Africa once again.

 

The trip ended back in Cape Town in February 2010 having covered 32,000 miles (50,000 kms) whence the Land Rover was shipped back to the UK.

 

When planning the trip, over a couple of years, we sought advice from experts - those that had done similar before, we referred to the many books on the various aspects of African travel, and we researched the internet. The intention of this private website is to share some of our experiences, including matters such as banking and telephones which can become the bane of one’s life, to aid a little those who are likewise planning a similar trip – something I would absolutely encourage.
