They did it! On 21st January 2014, Steve and John set off on the Dakar Challenge in aid of Small Steps and on 9th February, they arrived safely at Nouakchott, Mauritania, which is the ‘official’ end point for the Dakar Challenge. But… as true adventurists they continued on to Senegal and finally to Dakar!
We’re so grateful to Steve and John for raising money for Small Steps by taking on this challenge. Steve explains what’s been involved…
“The “Dakar Challenge” entails buying a second hand car (we have a Mitsubishi Pajero), and driving it from the UK down through Europe and across to Morocco, Western Sahara, Mauritania, and finally on to Dakar in Senegal. Oh! There is a minefield we have to cross in Western Sahara, but I’m sure our trusty (or is that rusty) steed will get us there. See here for more details http://www.dakarchallenge.co.uk/
