Mary Hannah and Andy have spent three months tackling the gruelling continent

Adventure couple, Texan Mary Hannah ‘MH’ and Yorkshireman Andy, quit their day jobs back in 2018 to pursue their dreams of seeing the world. Since then, they’ve travelled to over 35 countries together in their trusty 2010 Land Rover Defender 110 (nicknamed ‘Tango’ thanks to its bright orange colour).

The duo’s latest mission saw them leaving Cape Town, South Africa, around three months ago, aiming to head north and ultimately reach Cairo, Egypt at the other side of the vast continent.

MH and Andy’s Land Rover benefits from EBC Brakes’ ED+ front and rear brake pads, as well as GD discs up front, to help it tackle the infamously notorious and varying terrain that Africa offers.

They recently sent their latest update from Namibia – over 7500 miles north of where they started – which can be read below in their own words.

“Over the last three months, we’ve traversed over 7500 miles across South Africa, Lesotho, and the southern part of Namibia and are now making our way up the Namibian coast. The terrain has been harsh, with brutal corrugation, dust, and debris, putting Tango to the ultimate test. Amazingly, we haven’t had any significant breakdowns or issues with Tango, just normal wear and tear.”
