Imagine driving off into freedom and camping under the star-filled sky of the Sahara.
In Stan, their trusty Land Rover, kitted out like a home away from home, Tony and Patricia Scobie do exactly that. On the eve of the Gulf War, the 50 year-old English couple leave their London life for an extraordinary journey across Africa.
Relying on maps and a compass, not mobile phones and satnav, they are determined to realise their dream. But when faced with the world’s worst roads, will Stan be up to the challenge?
After navigating the desert’s shifting sands, the pair face gun-toting militias, have a rare glimpse of a black rhino and watch in awe as wild herds thunder across the Serengeti.
With Tony and Patricia, explore places that are now too dangerous to visit, experience life on the road in Stan and enjoy a time when you truly could get away from it all.
