Indlovu is a premium coffee table book of our African Overland adventure.
It started with a dream. A dream to re-create one of the most iconic travels: mastering the length of Africa, crossing the Dark Continent and facing its feared challenges and deepest unknowns.
We turned this dream into reality and now want to share this adventure, it's most powerful photos and memorable stories with you.
The journey started with finding a car, sturdy enough to carry us through the vast desserts, rough roads and densest jungles of Africa. We found a trustworthy 4x4 Landcruiser and gave her life by naming her Indlovu, the unstoppable elephant. And she literally was unstoppable! She had already crossed the length of Africa a total of 4 times with previous adventurers.
We want to pay tribute to her, our tireless overland truck and most valued companion, the people we met and the countries we travelled across.
We travelled for 5 months from London to Cape Town and took the less travelled West African coastal route. We crossed 21 highly diverse African countries and had some incredible adventures and emotional experiences.
The book will showcase some of the best photos and meaningful stories from our trip across Africa and will include contributions from Indlovu's previous owners and the over-landing expert and mechanic who worked on Indlovu for each of her overland trips.
The hard-cover book will be approximately 24cm H x 28cm W and of a very high quality, suitable for display in your home or in a corporate setting. It will consist of over 140 professionally designed pages with double spreads featuring some of the most powerful photos.
We are part-funding the publishing of the book ourselves and raising additional funds through Kickstarter to cover some of the costs of printing the book and paying professional fees required for design, editing and proof-reading. We appreciate your support in finishing the book.

Risks and challenges
We have an art director already commissioned and working on the project to ensure the design quality and layout. The content has already been written and we have received contributions from previous owners. We have an editor and proof-reader lined up so we can proceed as soon as the project receives funding.
We have also sourced and secured a well established and proven printer to produce the books. We are conscious of fulfilling our promised timelines for delivery and have built in some contingency for this.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
