• Cape Town to Kenya: Our 4×4 Self-Drive Route

    Welcome to part 2 of my Cape Town to Kenya blog post. In case you missed Part 1, let me fill you in real quick: my boyfriend and I have recently just returned home to Cape Town from a 3 month 4×4 self-drive expedition in our Land Rover Defender TDi named Pumba.
