THE TRIP OF A LIFETIME WITH LAND ROVER
In July 2015 Brett Andersen and three friends undertook the trip of a lifetime after winning the Land Rover ‘Spirit of Adventure’ competition.
Applying his ‘adventure is a state of mind’ philosophy, Brett and his friends travelled along the Agulhas coastline, South Africa, following the route of the annual 'Sardine Run' from Port Elizabeth to Durban.
Led by marine biologist and Land Rover Global Ambassador, Monty Halls, the expedition team were at the centre of this incredible migration of sardines which every year attracts thousands of marine predators and other wildlife. It is a spectacle that is viewed by experts as one of the wonders of the natural world.
In fifteen days of non-stop adventure, the expedition team dove amongst the feeding frenzy of the sardine run and traversed challenging off-road terrain to visit Land Rover sponsored projects, making this a truly unforgettable experience.

The Shoals of Agulhas expedition brought us from Port Elizabeth, travelling more than 1000kms over fourteen days. We swam with sharks, went off-road, braved rolling seas, and sought out adventure every second possible.
