Here you can see where we are, with 3 days delay. During the entire expedition, we gather data from the expedition car. Every day new data is uploaded on our website for you to see. In addition, new parameters will be added in the coming months.
We do this so that we can all learn more about electric driving long distance. What affects the range and battery health of an electric car?

A Sustainable Expedition
It is our goal to drive from the Netherlands to South Africa and back with a regular electric car that we charge with portable solar panels.
We will be completely self-sufficient; sleeping in a rooftop tent, cook electric and shower with self-purified water by the car.
A new way to travel sustainable long-distance to places where there are no charging stations.
While doing so we built a sustainable community. As we all agree sustainability is important, we want to share the learnings of other sustainable people and initiatives along the route.
Why? To inspire each other to take the next step in implement sustainability in daily life and business.
It is our mission to make sustainability fun, simple and practical and help each other take ownership to implement this in our lives.

Roadmap of our green expeditions
Until the 19th of September 2022 we prepared the expedition. This includes the innovative charging technology, the car for the expedition, the route along sustainable initiatives, and more.
From September 20th to October 16th 2022 we made a tour through the Netherlands to test the charging technology, visit sustainable initiatives and meet you.
On the 4th of November 2022 we departed for Africa. We started at Geelen Counterflow in Haelen, our main partner. We expect to be on the road for about 1,5 years.
Once we are back home, a new phase will start. A phase in which we will share our learnings and help others to implement sustainability where we can.
We are two Dutch nature geeks, both completely in love with each other, adventure and traveling the world…
We want to inspire and help people to do something about climate change, without compromising in the quality of life. It is all about being aware and making conscious choices.
