How easy is it to drive a small 17 year old car from Birmingham to Cape Town? Well I'm going to find out on 25th September when I do just that!

Retired nearly 13 years ago and since then been privileged to travel all over the world and meet amazing people and cultures. I'm now driving from Birmingham to Cape Town and collecting donations for the British Red Cross where I have been a volunteer for over five years. Please be as generous as you can. Thank you
Driving in Africa is dangerous, there are so many road side movements going on everywhere and people walking too. The roads can be full of holes, speed bumps arent always identified and can be huge. The tarmac can melt and slide to one side causing massive ripples in the surface that “trap” you into the ruts they cause. Often the road is raised on fast roads with a steep slope embankment, If you come off you will likely die when the car turns over!!
