Hello
I have done the London to Australia overland trip with Odyssey Overland and it is a excellent company.
The Capetown to Cairo 2010 will be their first trip. Although Pete the owner has had many years expirence with Africa as he used to work for another overland company and is South African himself.
I had intended to do the Nov 2010 trip myself but for various reasons find I am unable to do it. Nevertheless I hope to be on the November 2011 trip.

The ages vary the avarage being in their 30s but out of the 20 people on the Australian trip 6 of us were over 55.

Hope that helps
