On Saturday 13th September we held our 3rd annual Open Day at Oasis Overland HQ. We met some past travellers, future travellers and those interested in being future travellers!
One of our favourite trucks was on display, M745, also affectionately known as ‘Fanny’. She did her first trip back in 2003, a UK to Cape Town Expedition and more recently travelled from Istanbul to China. This summer she was given an overhaul ready for the UK to Cape Town overland expedition starting this November so she was spruced up and ready for visitors on Saturday.
Jon, one of our Tour Leaders, gave a talk with photos of his Africa travels and some of the places and people you might meet on one of our Africa overland trips. He was in high demand and gave the talk twice – great for Jon as by his own admission, he likes to ramble on about Africa!
The ‘Sausage Sizzle’ on the bbq went down well and from it we raised £65 for the Sudanese Community Development Project in Cairo, one of the regular charities we support. Thank you to everyone for your generosity!
We loved meeting you all so thank you to everyone that came along.
