Passenger Profile #8: Mark P - African Trails 'Ultimate Trans Africa' Overland Trip

  • Name: Mark
  • Age: 28
  • From: North Queensland, Australia
  • Aliases: Marjane, Norm, Normski
  • Most likely to say: "How ya goin mate?" or "Ooh la la!" or "F**king c*nts!" (Australian for "decent chaps") or "Nyeh??" (Australian for "Pardon me, good fellow. Could you please repeat what you just said?")

 Our trans driver.

Ranked number one (by far) on the swearing scale!

Loves to swear profusely at non-English speaking officals when crossing borders.

Doing his 2nd trans Africa trip as a driver so pretty relaxed a lot of the time.

Has had malaria over 10 times, and several tropical worm invaders.

Stuck on a branch at the warm springs - cramp in both legs led to him eventually letting go...

Machete at the ready

Cooling down in Mali


Cutting Ruby out of a sticky situation

Losing a wave (with style) in The Congo
On the posium after winning the GoKarting in Swakopmund

Loves to have his picture taken

Marjane's head scarf was so tight he couldn't get his sunnies on properly!!
