our plan

Having recently talked to many other overlanders, crossing africa from south to north seems like a very decent and usual thing to do… even if the other 99,9% of people we shared this with – being mainly our family and friends – think we are a bit insane.

Regardless from which perspective you look at it – it surely will be a lifetime adventure, the toughest journey and most impactful experience…

at least until the trips that still might follow… and Mark Twain was right:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Exlpore. Dream. Discover.”

Starting in South Africa, we will drive up the Namibian coastline, then cross the African continent to pass Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi before reaching the Indian Ocean in Tanzania and Kenya. Depending on time and safety situation in Northern Africa, we will either go further north – crossing Ethiopia and Sudan, then further on to Israel and back to Stuttgart via Turkey and the Balkan. Alternatively, we will drive back down to SA via Uganda, Rwanda and Mozambique.
