WALKING WILD IN TANZANIA
LRA expedition concludes in Dar
Three weeks, five African countries and 8 000 km later, our Cape to Dar es Salaam expedition culminated in the hustle and bustle metropolis of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Our fleet, made up of three Freelander 2 SD4 SE vehicles and one Range Rover Evoque SD4, endured several border crossings and demanding off-road trails. We even managed to dodge a few wild animals and several trucks that shaved past us on roads hardly bigger than a single-track bicycle route. Nevertheless, the fleet made it to Dar es Salaam unscathed, barring a few punctures and a small crack in our windscreen. Arriving to the warm embrace from the Southern Sun Hotel staff at our end destination, it was with some sadness and an overwhelming sense of achievement that we concluded our epic adventure through the incredible continent of Africa. Tanzania has the ability to creep into your heart as a friendly, colourful, lush and bustling city. Our travelling chef, Reuben Riffel (from MasterChef-fame), who described this journey as a “life-changing adventure” was ecstatic, yet saddened by the fact that this was also the end of the road for him and the crew. Hugs and champagne all round and we raised a glass to the tiny Freelanders who held their own throughout the expedition and handled everything we (and Africa) throw at them.
