Find out more about 80-year-old Julia Albu’s drive from Cape to Cairo at the Cape Town launch of My African Conquest
More about the book!
Jonathan Ball Publishers and Exclusive Books invite you to the launch of My African Conquest: Cape to Cairo by Julia Albu.
From helping push a 30-year-old Toyota bakkie up a precipitous mountain pass in Malawi to being ‘adopted’ by the riotous ex-pat South African community in Dar es Salaam and being fed mildly hallucinogenic ‘herbs’ by her Ethiopian driver-guide, nothing deterred 80-year-old Julia Albu from her quest to drive through Africa from the Cape to Cairo.
Reminiscing about her long and interesting life along the way, and maintaining a bright and upbeat outlook regardless of the circumstances, Julia proves that you’re never too old to tackle that bucket list.
Date: Thursday, 10 October 2019

‘And what route are you going to take?’
‘I have no idea. I think I’ll keep to the right.’
