Ok so ive just bought a Toyota estima enima thingy bobsy, 1994 i think , got it for £550 .. bargain ! so im in the middle of turning it into a camper and it will make a comftable 4 seater! i am planning on just taking it as it is not getting anywork done and just wing it, the way africa should be done i think ! me and hopefully my friend will be going on this journey and will be looking for 2 more people to join us ! all costs will be split equal !

i went on an overland trip through south america this winter just gone with a company called oasis, and the driver is going back to africa to drive around there so i can get local knowledge from him and hes friends on boarders ect, also will be meeting up with there overland trucks i hope and have a good old fashioned party!!

me and my mate olly drove from london to timbuktu last year in a peugeot 205 we bought for £200 and the old girl made it ! reaserchd cars and think toyota is cool becouse its diffrent to every other landrover.. and parts widley available esspecialy on the east side!

any questions or anything let me know or just post with what your plans are for uk - cape town
