Our mode of transport for the Malawi trip will be our trusty Land Rover Defender Shrek.  We have decided not to take our off-road trailer (Donkey) with us to safe on pulling extra weight and also to make us more mobile.

To enable us to do this we had to re-arrange packing inside Shrek and we also fitted a rooftop tent to sleep in.  As the old tyres on Shrek had already done 95 000 km’s and is almost six years old we decided to put new rubber on for the trip.  We don’t want any unsuspected blow-outs in remote areas.

You can read in the section on Vehicles and equipment more about Shrek.
