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)...

Ob Teer, Schotter oder Wellblech – Autofahren in Afrika ist ein Abenteuer. Über 25.000 Kilometer sind wir bereits auf den Straßen des südlichen und östlichen Afrikas gefahren. Hier findet ihr unsere Tipps von Allrad bis Wartung, von Botswana bis Uganda. Wenn wir...

We Are Still Alive, And We Are Doing Fine! / Ja, wir leben noch, und es geht uns gut!

Dear EarthLoversOnTour-friends, we are still alive, and we are doing fine! We have even finished our ‘Cape Town to Casablanca Tour’ already – well, after 13 months 😉. At present we are back in South Africa. Only by plane and just for a while, yet we are enjoying...

Durch den Norden von Malawi

Malawi bietet eine reizvolle Mischung aus wundervollen Bergregionen, quirligen Städten und dem unvergleichlichen Malawisee. Das Reisen ist entspannt, weil sich überall fantastische Campingplätze finden lassen. Für uns war es die zweite Reise nach Malawi. Beim ersten...
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...

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...

Joshua Tree National Park, April 2017.

**Hi there! So I’ve been thinking. My new plan is to blog our current locations and sprinkle in the old international traveling we did throughout Mexico and Canada in 2016 since that never got done. So here we go….** We just got back from another stint in...
The Countdown

The Countdown

For a multitude of reasons, none of which are even remotely tethered to a desire to stop travelling or depart from our new life on the road, we’d made the decision a couple of months ago to head back to Australia! Sadly South America will have to wait a little longer…...
Build an expedition truck: Motorcycle carrier

Build an expedition truck: Motorcycle carrier

“We’re going to take bikes with us. It will keep us in shape and it’s cheaper.” “Ha, we used our bikes only once during our Africa trip. Take a motorcycle with, trust me! You will not regret it.” said a friend. But we though we knew better. So we bought two new...
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...
