What it will take
Going up to 20 000 kms to Africa will take a lot of organising and stuff ... people have asked what is needed so I've put together a list and what they could contribute to the trip so below is a list, prices are approximate (or still being researched), and not based on cheapest but most suitable value for money.
If you know of any good potential sponsors, love to hear from your or please pass on my connection details, THANK YOU. If you'd like to sponsor, awesome, THANK YOU. Credits will be given to sponsors and I'm open to marketing options, please feel free to contact me with any questions or connections ... looking for those 6 degrees of separation!

At the moment I do not know if I will need to build the interior of the van to live in, there are very few 4x4 vans with all the inside gear. This is a growing list of items and I'll be adding to it as things crop up.
