How it all began - 1993 the formation of Safari Drive
In 1992 Charles Norwood and Meregan Turner (now Mrs Norwood) flew into Kano in Northern Nigeria to pick up a Land Rover that belonged to Charles. It had been left there by an expedition he was supporting and back up for. The original idea was to relocate the Land Rover back to the UK via the Sahara. However the Tuareg ( the blue men of the desert) had other ideas and were were blocking the overland route across the Sahara and robbing tourists that ventured into their territory. If Charles and Meregan had been able to drive that route home Safari Drive may never have been formed.
Fate intervened and instead they drove South and West through Cameroon, The Central African Republic, Zaire (now DR Congo) Rwanda, Tanzania and Kenya.
