Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.  Live the Life you have imagined

– Henry David Thoreau

We have dreamed about driving through Africa for years, but it always remained just that – a fantasy, something we’d love to do, but never really believed we would, or could actually follow through on.

And then one day we thought – why not?

Life is just too short to wait until retirement to start doing everything we want to do.

Our love of wildlife, nature and African wilderness has also spurred us into action – if we wait until we retire, there may not be much wildlife to see, nor wilderness to experience.

So we are taking the plunge and living our dream!

We’ll be making the journey from Nordkapp in Norway – referred to as the northern-most point on the European mainland – to Cape Agulhas in South Africa, the southern-most tip of Africa. The plan is to spend some time in Europe, before touching African soil.

This blog-site allows you to share our dreams, adventures and explorations with us. You’ll start with the rollercoaster ride of preparations and then join us on our journey.  Our website contains a wealth of information too, so please head over to

We hope to inspire you to realise your own dreams, whatever they may be.
