Late on the evening of the 10th of June, exactly nine months after the team set off from Perranporth, the Cornwall to Cape Town expedition arrived in Cape Town. The punters of Long St, central Cape Town, found their evenings interrupted by the arrival of a large red Land Rover, complete with three foot Kudu horns on the front, firewood piled on top, and POLICE in large letters on the side. They may have wondered why the occupants appeared so elated. Scarce did they know that this was their 21,758th mile, their 30th country, their 243rd day.
We would like to thank our families, friends, and everyone who has made this trip possible. It really has been one of the best experiences of our lives and we could never have achieved without the help we have received.
Please keep popping back to read the rest of the story about how we made it to Cape Town. It’s a fair old yarn. And don’t forget about that big red ‘Donate’ button on the right of your screens!
What an incredible journey. Well done! When is the book coming out ? Your blog has been the best travel writing I have read, ever. X
Thank you so much! Great to receive some feedback. We don’t know the first thing about publishing, so we’d need some help!
Well done guys! It was so great to follow your trip… My goodness you have had some struggles! Makes our trip look like a walk in the park. But we can both share that feeling of “how the balls did we actually DO this?” when arriving in Cape Town 😀

Haha completely! Was just watching some of the videos today and wondering the same… You get a bit hooked though, right?
Congratulations guys, I hope you really enjoyed your trip and thanks for making a difference to the people of Africa. We met at the Victoria Falls by the way.
