We did it! Over Easter 2012 as planned. We started the Expedition on April 5th 2012, returning to Cairo on 21st April 2012.
For two weeks we actually did re-enact many of the daring escapades of the legendary Long Range Desert Group in a pair of original World War Two Jeeps. We drove through the stunning dunes of the Great Sand Sea. Explored the Gilf el Kebir, a plateau the size of Switzerland. Camped under the stars a million miles from the nearest town. Stood in the Cave of the Swimmers, immortalised in the film, The English Patient. Live for that Ice Cold in Alex moment as we celebrated in exactly the same bar as they did 70 years ago. This was no cruise along the Mediterranean coast, but the real thing, sweat, steam and fatique, but with a fully equipped logistics team on hand to cook, wash up and guide us through some of the most beautiful desert scenery on the planet.
