Story Boxes… the big update!

So we’ve been a bit slack on the blog updates recently…. not our fault… we blame the location really! You see, it’s all down to this fab beach-camp.  We’ve been doing a bit of pottering about, cleaning and maintenance on Cuthbert,...
Botswana: New Parts, New Friends

Botswana: New Parts, New Friends

For a desert country, it seems strange that half of Botswana’s landscape is dominated by water features. Almost all of Botswana is part of the Kalahari desert, yet it’s most famed features are rivers, a river delta, and lake beds. As we drove through the border post...
Peru: Battles and Mines

Peru: Battles and Mines

So is it all Incas and llamas in Peru? Well, okay… there are quite a lot of Inca sites and there are quite a few wandering llamas. But there’s other stuff too…. Honest! For our third entry to Peru, we crossed the Brazilian Amazon into the (rather similar looking)...

Namibia: Adventures and Animals

Namibia: Adventures and Animals

We welcomed this plan of traveling with Paul & Julie into the Marienflus Valley, because the area is extremely remote and two vehicles is better in the event of an emergency. Together, we looked at a map to figure out where to get fuel, and food. We had stocked up...
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...
