The 13 intrepid Ghanaians who set out on a 10,000KM road adventure from Accra to London with the Wanderlust Ghana organization have arrived at their destination.
On Sunday, August 6, 2023, the company arrived in London after days spent traveling and discovering new countries and appreciating nature.
The trip’s organizers, Wanderlust Ghana, disclosed that they arrived at midday GMT (1:00 pm BST).
In a video posted online, the group celebrated their historic drive and expressed their joy.
On Sunday, July 23, 2023, they left Accra and began their journey across the globe by car. They passed through Aburi, Nsawam, Kumasi, and Sunyani on the way to Dormaa, where they then entered Cote d’Ivoire via Golokrom.
With five distinct Ghanaian-registered vehicles—a Mercedes Benz G-Wagon, two Toyota Landcruiser (V8), a Lexus RX 350, and a Ford F150 Raptor—they began their voyage as a party of twelve individuals.
Due to other factors, the number of passengers gradually decreased during their drive, but the other passengers remained on board for the historic trip.
On average, the group traveled 800 to 900 kilometers per day.
By Friday, August 4, 2023, the intrepid group had crossed five African nations—Cote d’Ivoire, Mali, Senegal, Mauritania, and Morocco—arrived in Europe via the Mediterranean ferry at Algeciras, Spain, and then traveled by car to Barcelona through Valencia.
They discussed some of the difficulties they faced as they traveled across the desert and how some of the Toyota vehicles had their brake pads changed numerous times while the others were still on the road.
For a welcome party, the group is anticipated at Ashford Kent Outlet Mall.
