Zambia WITH A DASH OF ZEST
There’s just something romantic about a Land Rover in Africa. In an effort to inspire overland tourism in Africa ( and to banish the notion that Africa is only for adventure- ready Defenders), we embarked on a culinary expedition with MasterChef judge ( and Landy fan) Reuben Riffel to visit five African countries in three weeks. To really get a sense of what Africa is like for the self- driving overlander, we varied our accommodation between real- safari- experience lodges, comfy campsites and even the odd rough- it- out night by sleeping under the stars on Lakes Kariba and Malawi. Three factory- standard Freelanders ( and one sexy sibling – a Range Rover Evoque) showed that you don’t always need to be a Camel Trophy competitor to experience the magnificent African continent.
