Southern Africa, 19 April 2018
We begin our long journey into the African land through South Africa, Namibia, Angola, Zambia, Zimbabwe and finally Botswana. An almost 14,000 km long journey awaits us. The aim of Africa 2018 is to go and see for oneself and bring concrete help to the many Catholic missionaries working in realities plagued by poverty as well as social instability.
From April to June 2018, two months of travelling covered five countries with 11 motorbikes prepared for African roads.
16 pilots, 11 of them, and others to support the caravan.
The project was realised in collaboration with the Vatican Dicastery for Human and Integral Development.
The first trouble with Cape Town customs for the delivery of the motorbikes and vans prevents the start of the trip and causes a delay on the road map.
The first section of the journey, from South Africa to entering Angola after crossing the deserts of Namibia.
