Ford Ranger Odyssey Africa 2013 contestant Dania Petrik shares images of her adventure.

Earlier in July 2013, Wheels24 reported that the ten contestants in the Ford Ranger Odyssey Africa 2013 arrived in South Africa after a gruelling 22-day drive covering 7860km through six countries.

The participants undertook humanitarian projects along the way but also battled each other for the ultimate prize – a special-edition Ford Ranger... but more on that later.

Ranger Odyssey contestant DANIA PETRIK, shared her experiences with us:

'IT CAN BE BE TAKEN ANYWHERE'

Petrik said: "I am still probably the least experienced 4x4 driver with the least car knowledge, but I have never felt more empowered or invincible than when I crested a sand dune ridge or gravel hill in Ranger!

"It can be taken anywhere, traverse any terrain, tackle any mountain, ride through any river, and get there with maximum fuel efficiency and comfort. And that's what matters to me."

Wheels24 asked Petrik to send us images of her 22-day trek. She obliged with a fantastic image gallery!

BATTLE FOR ULTIMATE PRIZE

Throughout the expedition contestants were evaluated on their driving, camp-craft, communication skills and product awareness.

The results will be tallied and an overall winner, who will be handed the keys to an Odyssey-edition Ranger 3.2 XLT 4x4, will be announced on August 8.
