“It’s roughly 2,500km”….
“That’s quite a long way”..was the response from the owner of the vehicle that I was asking to borrow to drive the 2,500km. Thankfully, he soon turned his attentions to more pressing concerns such as my weapon handling skills and my apparent lack of knowledge on the movement of rebels on the Uganda – DRC border. All that aside, an expedition was born, and the vehicle secured.
In August, I will be driving from Nairobi, to Tanzania, through Rwanda onto Uganda, up to the Democratic Republic of Congo, and then back to Kenya via Uganda. Co-driver Tom James completes the team, although i’m not sure he knows too much about those rebels either…?!
