Ebenezer Kwadwo Saka Addo-Mensah, popularly known as Saka, a member of Wanderlust Ghana, has openly acknowledged that the Accra to London overland expedition came with a considerable financial cost.
Saka frankly highlighted the financial obstacles linked with the travel in an interview with Ghanaian writer Stephen Kofi Adoma, professionally known as Kofi Adoma Nwanwani, recognizing the potential hardship for individuals facing financial restraints.
Saka, also the CEO of Saka Homes, was one of 12 eager visitors, including a woman, who completed a spectacular 10,000-kilometer trek from Accra, Ghana, to London, United Kingdom.
This incredible voyage began on July 23, 2023, and ended on August 6, 2023. The group traveled extensively through different African countries, including Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, Senegal, Mauritania, and Morocco.
According to citinewsroom.com, they then took a ferry across the Mediterranean to Algeciras, Spain, before continuing on to Barcelona via Valencia. After a well-planned path that took them through Monaco and France, their voyage concluded in London.
Saka said that a significant percentage of their expenses were due to fueling and recharging their cars, a crucial aspect of achieving their lofty objective of making history through their one-of-a-kind adventure.
He emphasized the financial investment needed for the vehicles to successfully cross such a long distance and difficult terrain.
