According to the leader of Wanderlust Ghana, Kwabena Peprah, they started with five cars, but only four could get to London. Unfortunately, the G-Wagon was denied entry into the United Kingdom.
Toyota, Ford and a Lexus featured alongside the Mercedes-Benz on the historic journey covering 10,000km between two continents.
These cars are better suited to long-distance, high-speed travel, which helped them reach London safely without any major glitches on the road.
According to Kwabena Peprah, they had to make good with their personal vehicles after Ghanaian brand Kantanka turned them down.

"The vehicles were; my Landcruiser, Cyprian’s Landcruiser, Kwadwo’s Raptor, Fred’s Defender, Joe’s G63 and Frank’s RX350 (the most vilified machine in the list)."
The Toyota Landcruiser is sturdy, tough and at the same time luxurious. It features on the top of Toyota-manufactured cars.
This car has a 5.2-litre Supercharged V8 engine, which makes it perfect for a long rough international journey.
The Lexus Radiant Crossover model was the first sports utility vehicle to interlaced luxury and off-roader specifications.
The four-wheel drive automobile is both an off-roader and a luxury icon.
