From Toyota of South Africa:

"Four rugged Toyota 4x4s, nine South African adventurers, 13 countries, 64 days and 15 000km of wild west Africa … these are the ingredients of the pioneering 2006 Timbuktu-Table Mountain Expedition that starts in the Senegalese capital of Dakar on May 25.

More than two months later the Toyota convoy of two new Fortuners and two Land Cruiser pickups is due to complete their trans-African journey of discovery with a homecoming on Cape Town’s Table Mountain on July 26."

So summarize, 15,000km around west Africa, 4 Toyota trucks, zero mechanical problems.
