From the DRIVER’S SEAT

Land Rover AFRICA Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Our diaries are fill­ing up quickly here at the LRA of­fices. Ian was no sooner back from a mem­o­rable trip to Zam­bia and Botswana with the Evoque MY14 and Disco 4, when he was book­ing flights to get to this year’s Landy Fes­ti­val at the Soet­dor­ing Vakan­sieplaas near Vereenig­ing. The event prom­ises to be big­ger and bet­ter than be­fore and we look for­ward to catch­ing up with our LRA friends and read­ers ( and friendly read­ers) at the event. The big news is our Cape to Dar es Salaam trip in July. There are loads of prizes up for grabs as read­ers try to guess the dis­tance we travel each day in our quest to sam­ple home- grown cook­ing in each of the coun­tries we drive through. Reuben Rif­fel – owner of top restau­rant Reuben’s in Fran­schhoek ( and Masterchef SA judge) – will be work­ing for his sup­per as we com­pile a trav­el­ogue-in­spired cook­book along the way. We’ll be driv­ing through Namibia, Zam­bia, Zim­babwe, Malawi, and into Tan­za­nia in an epic three- week road trip. Stay tuned for more up­dates on this and other ad­ven­tures. We chat to Jaguar Land Rover’s Les­ley Sut­ton in our ‘ 20 Min­utes With…” seg­ment and cel­e­brate fond mem­o­ries of the Camel Tro­phy. Spend some time read­ing all about the Race to Re­cov­ery Dakar rally team and, like us, you’ll be left in awe of these leg­ends. I hope you en­joy read­ing this is­sue as much as we en­joyed bring­ing it to you. Andy Mark Edi­tor- in- chief COSA Me­dia I’m keen to hear your sug­ges­tions and com­ments; please drop me a line at edi­tor@ landy­mag.co. za
