Nancy Gregory – Bamako Mali West Africa

1983 Land Rover Series III 109″

LHD Land Rover 109 Series III - Nancy's Land Rover ready for delivery to Dakar, prior to her trip overland to Bamako - mali, West Africa

Nancy first came to me late in ’98 with the idea for her “ideal” Land Rover, suitable for use in West Africa where she was taking up a teaching job for up to 2 years. After discussing her requirements, we came up with the above Land Rover which has since been christened “Enshallah !”.

The photographs below show some of the refurbishment process (click on images for larger picture). We delivered the Land Rover to Tilbury docks, for shipping on to Dakar, Senegal. From there Nancy drove overland to Bamako. She has sent us an account of the journey, and some more pictures:-
