Join the adventure!
After exploring Africa in our trusty Landcruiser ‘Troopy’, we wanted to do something a bit bigger: to share the experience – to travel, to learn and to understand more of our world. Future expeditions will therefore be open to join, in a comfortable but go-anywhere vegan overland expedition home.
In doing this we would like to make the world a better place in whatever small way we can. This is a toughie, since travelling uses resources and contributes to the environmental impact people are having everywhere. So to counterbalance this and turn it into a positive, we will be generating funds for projects which support and encourage biodiversity and true sustainability. Vegan Without Frontiers is a not for profit organisation and all surplus contributions to the expedition costs will be donated to charities which work towards a sustainable world for everyone’s future. Relatively few people will be able to join us for a great, maybe challenging experience which will probably change the way they think of the places we go. But by directing funds to environmental and vegan organisations we can help make a difference to a lot more people.
Over the next year we will be up-cycling an ex-military 8×8 truck into a comfortable, self-sufficient rolling home for around 6 people. Here’s a brief video mock-up of the living accommodation…don’t believe the sofas will look like that, but motorhome furniture wasn’t in the library! Still to be added: Troopy-style pop roof on the ‘living room’, plus smaller roofs or big hatches on the top bed-pods.
Vegan travel is getting easier, and surprisingly so in many remote places as we found in previous travels around Africa, but by having our own base the food is not something we need to worry about at all. Finding vegan food in the most unexpected places and meeting individuals out there doing great things is then just a fantastic bonus!
More details will be posted soon…but if you’re interested in an adventure from the end of 2018 onward, get in touch?
