WWe're sending a trio of UK celebrities on an epic South African road trip. Join us as we take TV presenter Maya Jama, Instagram sensation Alice Liveing and travel blogger Saunders Carmichael-Brown , aka Saunders Says on an unbelievable 10 day road trip from Johannesburg to Cape Town.

We are off to South Africa for an epic road trip and we can’t wait! We are driving from Johannesburg to Cape Town, but we’re going do it the long way round. We’ll go to Durban, along the coast to Port Elizabeth, past the Garden Route and Klein Karoo desert to Cape Town. There’ll be some awesome food and wine, some crazy extreme bungee stuff, some surfing, and lots and lots of sharks – eek!! And we’re doing it all in a bakkie, which apparently is what the locals call a pick-up truck. So, come and meet South Africa with us, and check out our Bakkie Stories!
