Where the Desert Meets the Sea

Where the Desert Meets the Sea

We had been in Namibia over two weeks by the time we got to Windhoek, the capital city. Our plan was to set up a base camp and get some “town chores” done. Sometimes, especially in somewhere so sparsely populated as Namibia, you can only get some services...

Southern African trip reports.

In response to some requests I have collated the URLs of various earlier Southern African trip reports I have posted on the 4×4 Community Forum. I hope this is not considered immodest but I hope this easy access will help others in their research. This forum is...
So… Suriname!

So… Suriname!

Suriname, Suriname… where exactly is that? Near Vietnam? Nope. Next door to Ghana? Errr, no. It’s on the north coast of South America, above Brazil, snuggled comfortably between French Guiana and Guyana. It’s in the northern Amazon basin, so it’s hot, humid and – at...

Auf Safari in Botswana

Safaris in Botswana – das ist vor allem Wildnis pur: Die Campingplätze in den zahlreichen Nationalparks sind nicht umzäunt. Von der Kalahariwüste über die großen Makgadikgadi Salzpfannen bis hin zum Okavangodelta erlebt man Tierbegegnungen der ganz besonderen...

Nieuwe avonturen!

Nieuwe avonturen!

We zijn nu ruim een half jaar terug in Nederland en het gaat goed met ons. Helemaal geland en ingeburgerd zijn we nog niet, maar dat gaat iedere dag beter. De website lag even stil, maar op de achtergrond gebeurt van alles. We hebben ons volop gestort in nieuwe...
Amazon Delta

Amazon Delta

You can’t just drive across the Amazon Delta you know… you’d get a bit wet. Cuthbert earned his ‘Water-fording Proficiency’ badge reaching the Lençóis Maranhenses but this time we need to put him on a barge which zig-zags over 38 hours between the mangroves and...
Shipping

Shipping

The final hurdle for us was what to do with the landrover when we had finished.. We had toyed with selling it in South Africa however despite this being possible, due to the import laws we would have been unable to sell it for 2 years after it was officially imported....
