Where must we go,
we who wander this wasteland,
in search of our better selves?
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’s time to move up to something bigger. So we’ve set up a not-for-profit company with the aim of sharing the vegan overland travel experience while raising awareness and funds for charities and grass roots projects. Obviously, we’re going to need a bigger boat...or truck. So we are up-cycling an 8-wheel-drive army truck into a comfortable, self-sufficient base for 4-6 people.
In Summer 2020 we 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.
The videos above show someone else’s truck playing in the desert to show what the base truck can do, and there’s a mock-up of the living accommodation for ours (excuse the plastic people!).
Our truck is getting there – the main structure is done and it will soon be getting fitted out. Check back for updates – or even better sign up for the next expedition?
Vegan overland travel is getting easier 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.
