The first, to raise money for charities close to our hearts and second, to soak up Africa!We plan on taking our Defender 110 “Beefy” through Europe and somehow into Africa all the way down the East Coast and finally into South Africa.The bon voyage date is set for 16th of July this yearAs already proven, this adventure will be the most challenging and exciting trip of our lives!We are looking forward to meeting some amazing people and experiencing new cultures. No doubt there will be some good times and also a fair share of bad times. As we embark on this adventure we are also trying to raise some money for 2 very worthwhile and personal charity’s along the way. 100% of all donations will go to the charity’s. This trip is funded entirely off our own backs : )We will be posting regular updates, bloggs and photo’s right here on our website. So please join us as 2 Do Africa!
