The African Family Challenge Trek
London to Johannesburg OVERLAND 4×4 TREK via East Africa over 150 days, departing 19th January 2013.
We are doing a Trans-Africa Overland 4×4 TREK from London to Johannesburg via East Africa, with myself, Nic Andela, my wife Nicky, our 2 year old daughter baby Lily and my father Sib Andela, in aid of raising money for St John’s Hospice in the UK and Fatima House in South Africa. We were initially going to go down West Africa, but the recent kidnappings and problems in Mali we have decided to change our route for the East. It will no doubt be a challenging journey getting the whole family home safely.
It’s all for a good cause so if you have some pennies, both these organisations would greatly appreciate you donations:
