It was an epic story of a road trip from one continent to another, that is to say from Accra to Ghana through many African countries to London in the United Kingdom through other European countries, a journey of about 10,000 kilometres.

This is the trip that Kwabena Peprah, Kwabena Peprah and 10 other colleagues from Wanderlust Ghana, a group of philanthropists and tourism enthusiasts, undertook.

The common trip has always been the story of people travelling by road from Europe to Ghana, but this time, Ghana’s tourism enthusiasts do the opposite.

On Friday [August [4, 2023], they were on the outskirts of Monaco in Europe and were about to enter France, after crossing Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Senegal, Mauretania and Morocco in Africa and entering Europe by a ferry on the Mediterranean to Spain.

They spent three days in a country in Morocco.

They should be at the end of their trip to London on Sunday, August 6 or Monday, August 7.

After that, they will return their vehicles to Ghana.

They started the trip as a group of 12 people and use five different vehicles registered in Ghana, a Mercedez Benz G-Waggon, two Toyota Landcruisers (V8), a Lexus RX 350 and a Ford F150.

On a daily basis, each of the vehicles they use uses about 250 litres of fuel. On average, they are about 800 km to 900 km per day.

They shared videos on social media travelling in the desert and how some of the vehicles – Toyota – had brake pads changed many times while the others still move without the brake pads being changed.

We understand that Teddy, for example, had been planning to make this trip for a very long time. He wanted them to go in 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic prevented them from doing so.
