My overlanding trip throughout Eastern and Southern Africa

I’m about to embark on a safari of a lifetime! Yes, you heard me right…a journey throughout Eastern and Southern Africa! 😉

Imagine this:

58 days, 8 countries, and several thousands of kilometers worth of dusty roads (close to 13,500 km if my calculations are correct), bumpy rides + extraordinary scenery and terrain to travel through. Are you ready to be “a part of” this amazing experience? I sure will do my best to keep you posted on my whereabouts as the trip unfolds.

The whole itinerary! 🙂

Overlanding Definition

In overlanding there is the word “overland.” Overlanding therefore implies “to traverse” or to pass over the land/countries instead of the ocean.

In my case, I will be taking part in an overland trip on a fully equipped safari truck (16-24 passengers).

Overlanding Highlights

Countries Visited: Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa.

Tour Highlights:

Departure Date: November 20, 2010.

End Date: January 18, 2011.

What can You Expect from This Trip?

I will be taking my camera equipment + laptop to Africa, so expect to hear from me now and then on both my twitter + facebook pages.

I’ll also try to submit articles via the AfricaFreak website, although I cannot guarantee this. At the end of the day, it will all depend on the internet connection availability.

One thing for sure is that I’ll come back with loads of pics, interesting videos (hopefully… :)), and lots of things to share and talk about! 😉 So either way (whether it is during and/or after the expedition), you’ll hear a lot from me!

Looking for Sponsors

While part of my trip is being taken care of (thanks to a very generous sponsor ;)), I have calculated that I will need approximately €4,400 ($6,000) to cover additional costs over the two month period. These costs include local payments (park entry fees, gorilla permit, excursions, etc.), plane tickets, visas, food and camping, and more.

If you would like to sponsor this amazing trip, you can get into contact with me through info[at]africafreak.com. We can organize 125 x 125 banner ads and/or any other type of agreement in exchange for a monetary compensation (TBD).

Until next time, have a “fantabulous” day! 😉

    Great news Michael, when do you plan on visiting Zanzibar? I hope it doesn’t clash with when I am flying home to the UK for Christmas, as it’d be great to meet up!

      Yeah, that would be great indeed! 😉 Should be in Zanzibar between December 14-19, 2010. That’s if everything goes according to plans! 😉

      Looking forward to it! 🙂
