The Wanderlust Ghana member Ebenezer Kwadwo Saka Addo-Mensah, also known as Saka, has openly stated that the Accra to London overland adventure had a significant financial cost.
The journey’s financial difficulties were openly mentioned by Saka in an interview with Ghanaian writer Stephen Kofi Adoma, also known as Kofi Adoma Nwanwani, in recognition of the potential hardship for individuals facing financial restraints.
Saka, who is also the CEO of Saka Homes, traveled from Accra, Ghana, to London, United Kingdom, with a group of 12 passionate visitors that also included a woman.
On July 23, 2023, a remarkable trip began and came to an end on Sunday, August 6.
The group set out on a lengthy journey across many different African countries, passing through Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Senegal, Mauritania, and Morocco.
According to citinewsroom.com, they then took a ferry across the Mediterranean to Algeciras, Spain, and traveled through Valencia to Barcelona. After a carefully thought out path that brought them through Monaco and France, their trip finally came to an end in London.
In order to achieve their lofty objective of making history with this particular excursion, Saka revealed that a sizeable chunk of their costs were attributable to fueling and recharging their vehicles.
He emphasized the significant financial outlay necessary for the vehicles to successfully navigate such a vast area and difficult terrain.
