Additional Trans Africa date 14th November 2010

The November 40 week Trans Africa Expedition has proved so popular we have decided to put on an extra date leaving on the 14th of November!

Expedition truck

Our expedition trucks are converted at our workshop in Somerset.  The additional Trans Africa will run with a 6×4, 280horsepower, 8 speed Scania, easily able to cope with the varying terrains and conditions found en route.  The truck comfortably carries 24 travellers and is fitted with coach seats and under-seat storage for personal gear; under-floor storage for food, spares and souvenirs and our unique design ‘the Beach‘, a raised, open-topped section near the front for panoramic views of Africa.  The truck is also equipped with a satellite phone and GPS for peace of mind whilst in remote areas.  You can rest assured that the truck and crew leading this trip are amongst the most experienced on this route of any company.

Trans Africa route

The Trans Africa route has evolved over the years due to border openings and closures and changes in political stability.  The current route journeys across the Sahara in Mauritania to the West African coast before getting to grips with truck-sized potholes in the mud roads of Nigeria and Cameroun.  Angola also presents a challenge in rough roads as well as visa formalities.  After 23 weeks, the expedition arrives in Cape Town and the southern tip of Africa at Cape Agulhas.  The route continues to the East Coast of Africa, via famous National Parks, beautiful beaches and adventure activities in Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Malawi and Tanzania.  From Nairobi, the final leg travels through Ethiopia and Sudan, re-crossing the Sahara Desert to arrive in Cairo after 40 weeks.
