Vegan Without Frontiers started out as a personal journey. An expedition in answer to the call of the Desert, of Africa, of Adventure. But after twice driving overland the length and breadth of the continent, it has become something bigger. Vegan Without Frontiers Ltd has been set up as a not-for-profit company with the aim of sharing the experience while raising awareness and funds for charities and grass roots projects. Later this year will be setting off again and this time the expedition is open to the public to join. Come and stay on board as we explore? Take a short holiday, or come for a long adventure – enjoy the experience and discover the many faces of a great continent.
We are up-cycling an 8-wheel-drive army truck into a comfortable, self-sufficient base for 4-6 people. Guests can come for a stay on board as we travel around Africa. We’ll be posting as the build progresses – but for now here’s a brief video from someone else’s truck playing in the desert to show what the base truck can do, and a mock-up of the living accommodation for ours. Check back for updates!
Vegan travel is getting easier, and surprisingly so in many remote places as we found in previous travels around Africa. But we go where the tourist trail doesn’t and 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 is then just a fantastic bonus!
We will be generating funds for projects which support biodiversity and sustainability. Vegan Without Frontiers is a not-for-profit company so all surplus income will be donated to charities and projects. As a guest, you will be contributing to the positive improvement of the places we visit. You will also have a say in where and how we help. Relatively few people will be able to join us for the vegan overland adventure of a lifetime – but by funding projects and organisations we can help make a difference to a lot more.
