You have done the 4×4 training and you are keen to head out on an adventure in to the wild blue yonder – deepest darkest Africa beckons. Are you ready?
Shane and Tarryn Quinnell, known collectively as Team Tane recently embarked on the adventure of a lifetime. Theirs is not just an overland trip, but #SuzukiAfricaSkyHigh – no they are not planning to smoke pot in ‘Badger’ their Suzuki Jimny – is a journey overland to the foot of the five highest peaks in Africa, which the couple intend to summit.
Besides mountain climbing preparation, Team Tane have done a couple of 4x4ing courses to help prepare. Here is their video, named ‘4xFire’ showing them driving through an expanse of water on a flooded section of the Makgadigadi Pans in Botswana, hoping that they are not in too deep…
If 4x4ing doesn’t strike you as an adrenaline inducing, think again.
This is what Team Tane posted below the video on YouTube:
The reality of what we are attempting; overlanding through Africa alone, has finally dawned on us. This video explains why. Even with the 4×4 training days with Wizerd, Suzuki Bryanston, and Suzuki club, we are still finding the offroading hectic. Despite the crazy terrain and our nerves, Badger smashed it like the true beast he is.
