Zambia 2

We stayed at the Water front lodge for another 3 nights, in that time the boys managed to fit the parts to the cars, tinker and fix ongoing problems (our oil leak.. Which is still there a week or so later!). On the Saturday evening we had heard there was a wedding at...

Zambia 1

Arriving to the Zambian border control we were again pleasantly surprised to see things were fairly organised still – all customs, immigration and insurance were in the same building with signs! We had been told that the visa was in dollars only, but I had...
Namibia visit 1

Namibia visit 1

I call this blog visit 1 because we are only passing through the top of Namibia to get across to Zambia to meet Charles and Mandy’s family on 18th April. We are driving across the Caprivi strip to cross the border, however, it has worked out well this way as it...

Namibia

After driving into Namibia from Angola we headed south to our first campsite in the town of Ondangwa. We drove past a Shoprite and other clothing stores that took our fancy. After travelling on the road for almost 6months, our clothes are starting to look incredibly...

Angola 2

We left Andrew and Kristinas house and needed to head south as quickly as we can. We needed to be in Zambia, Livingstone by the 17th of April to meet my mom and Roger and it was the 6th of April already. So we left early that morning and hoped the car would be ok. Rob...

Angola 3

Leaving Lobito we stopped off for supplies and headed down South alongside the coast. It was a long day of driving, having come off the tar and onto fairly bumpy piste. Charles is not good on these roads because every 30 seconds he has his head out of the window...
Namibië, bekend terrein

Namibië, bekend terrein

Bij de grenspost van Namibië krijgen we een Ebola check en een stempel in ons paspoort en carnet. Dan nog roadtax betalen en we kunnen Namibië binnenrijden. Bekend terrein, Zuidelijk Afrika. Een totaal andere wereld dan de afgelopen maanden. Het voelt fijn. Helemaal...
Bom dia Angola!

Bom dia Angola!

De Angolese grens is direct nadat we de DRC hebben verlaten. Het ziet er professioneel uit; strakke gebouwen met airco en wachtruimten. Maar ook hier gaat het allemaal langzaam. We hebben maar 5 dagen visum gekregen om door Angola te reizen, maar het lijkt erop dat we...
Exploring fantastic Angola

Exploring fantastic Angola

Heading south along the coast the piste turned into new tarmac and the landscape became more desert like again. We found a small track leading to a spectacular beach with high cliffs rising on one side and massive waves crashing on the other. At a small gorge we set...

Zij die om dingen vragen

We zijn in Namibe, de hoofdstad van de gelijknamige en meest zuidelijke provincie van Angola. We kunnen over het asfalt en in een paar dagen naar de grens met Namibië rijden maar van andere reizigers hebben we een verhaal gelezen over een piste. De piste loopt via de...
