African Overlanders

The Cape to Cairo epic is a holy grail for adventurers. We did it! After a journey of 18 000km from Hermanus near the southernmost tip of Africa, we arrived in Haifa, Israel, in November 2013. Toughened by climatic extremes, battle zones and four intimidating deserts, we find there’s no cure for wanderlust.
