MAK­ING A SPLASH

Leisure Wheels (South Africa) - - PHOTOFOCUS -

When Land Rover said to ad­ven­turer Kings­ley Holgate that the com­pany will be sup­ply­ing him with two new Land Rover Dis­cov­erys for his Ex­treme East Ex­pe­di­tion, he was a bit sur­prised. Did they know where he was go­ing with the Landys, he asked. They said: no prob­lem, the Dis­cos will be up to the task. Now, fol­low­ing some mod­i­fi­ca­tions, the con­voy is mak­ing its way to­wards So­ma­lia and Harar. And so far the vehicles are do­ing a grand 4x4 job. We watch, along with the rest of the world, to see if they make the 18 000km to Harar and back to SA.
