Our Story

The Lone Wolf Transglobal Expedition took place in 2007, and was an overland journey, around the world in a very special Land Rover Defender Wolf XD.

From expedition plans that began as a dream, the project grew into something much more.  Very quickly taking on a life and purpose of its own, the team discovered that perhaps we could make a difference.

The mission changed, and this overland adventure became a way of showing the world that we are all the same,  we want to live in peace.  Regardless of race, religion or situation, this is one world, one life, one journey.
