Update 17. March 2011:
With the experience of our Coast to Coast – Meet the Oceans tour in 2009,
we were able to plan this time much faster. Unfortunately we had to remove DR Congo
from the list, the situation is still too uncertain but its still so bad.
The elimination of the Congo makes the route to Angola a lot longer.
We will decide in Lusaka, Zambia, whether we can go to Angola because there we have to get the visas.
The route leads now from South Africa to Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, back to Kenya,
Uganda, Rwanda, back to Tanzania, Zambia, Angola, Namibia, finally back home to South Africa.
If we do not go to Angola, Zimbabwe stands as a substitute on the program.
The time frame: April to October 2011
Scheduled Mileage: 60.000 km, including Ethiopia
Projected budget: 20,000 € (without the vehicle, but with the modifications, Carnet, Comesa Yellow Card, etc.)
Vehicle and equipment: Our Mitsubishi Pajero 4×4, 2002, with LW Roofrack, ARB Bullbar and T Max Winch,
Old Man Emu sports suspension, tires Hankook Dyna Pro MT.
Technical equipment: Navigation with Garmin eTrex and nRoute software from Garmin (via laptop),
a data logger Wintec WBT 202, a Power Inverter, 2 Acer Aspire 3935 notebooks,
a National Luna Weekender Fridge 50 Twin with 40 l fridge and 10L freezer, dual battery system .
Camera Equipment: Nikon D50 with a Sigma 18-200 mm telephoto lens,
a Nikon D80 with a Sigma 120 – 400mm telephoto lens,
a Canon EOS 40D with a Sigma 50 – 500mm telephoto lens,
last but not a Canon HG 10 camcorder.
It is more than exciting and we can’t wait to leave.
