Thanks to our reliable Toyota Land Cruiser Prado and some amazing gear, we were able to take on some of Africa’s toughest, untouched roads.

 

Camping Equipment

The product that turned our car into a home was our Howling Moon 1.4 Stargazer Deluxe Roof Top Tent. The Stargazer was incredibly easy to set up and take down.

Diving with Giants

Three hundred miles off the coast of Baja, California exists the remnants of an ancient volcano known as Roca Partida. Discovered by Spanish explorers in the early 1600s, this tiny uninhabited island is just a speck in a vast and empty seascape. Its only topside inhabitants are the birds that flock to the area, but beneath the surface it boasts one of the most impressive spectacles of pelagic marine life on the planet.
