They will be supported by a Jeep crew with an off-road trailer. Bryan Fawcett and Bobby Fuller will form the support crew.

The Kernes plan to ride from 30 July until 17 October 2016. “Once we arrive in Moshi we will then join a group to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa,” explains Camilla. “We plan to summit Mount Kilimanjaro on our 5th wedding anniversary on 15 October 2016.”

“Our goal is to raise R100 000 for Qhubeka,” says Warrick. The couple has currently raised just over R28 000.
