Earlier 2013 Wheels24 reported on Stan and Sally Hannath from Noordhoek, Cape Town, undertaking a 28 000km journey from Nordkapp, Norway to Cape Agulhas, South Africa to help build the Nelson Mandela Children’s Hospital in Johannesburg.

That means they'll have driven from the northernmost point of Europe to the southernmost point of Africa.

The Cape2Cape4kids epic road expedition will travel though 27 countries from June to October 2013.

ARRIVING IN GERMANY

They have just been in Hamburg, Germany, to collect their vehicle and drive to Norway, the official starting point of their road adventure in the VW T5 TDi kitted out with a bed, freezer and fridge, extra batteries and a solar panel.

The couple are funding their own journey so proceeds from donations along the route will be given directly to the hospital. There are currently only four dedicated children’s hospitals in Africa's 450-million children.
