This includes vehicle preparation, fitting the Front Runner rack and sleeping platform, shipping the vehicle to Durban, and process of selecting and organizing support equipment. They go into detail about the route through South Africa and Mozambique, followed by the lessons learned traveling together and with their trusty Grenadier.

Few places on the planet resonate with the adventurer like the African continent, from the vibrant cultures to the ancient civilizations, megafauna, and some of the most remote and inspiring landscapes on earth. At Overland Journal, we have been fortunate to circumnavigate the planet three times and cross all seven continents. Still, we had one journey that has continually called to us- crossing the long axis of the African continent.
Today marks day zero of the journey, as our Ineos Grenadier arrives in Durban, and we begin lightly modifying the vehicle to meet our needs as travelers. We selected the Grenadier because of its “Built on Purpose” design, robust construction, off-highway capabilities, and wagon configuration (Editor’s Note: We are not being paid to use the Grenadier). As we often share, pinnacle overland vehicles like the Grenadier require few changes for overlanding, and the Grenadier is no exception. We have no modifications planned for the vehicle, but we will add some storage and systems that help support the adventure.
