Het Kaokoveld is nog ongerepte wildernis in Namibie. Ondanks onze avonturen in de Desolation Valley wilden we het er toch op wagen de Huanib en Ganumeb rivierbeddingen te verkennen op zoek naar de woestijnolifanten. Opnieuw werden onze rij- en navigatie…

Beginnersfouten, risico-inschatting en stof / beginner mistakes and dust Beroofd tijdens een reis zijn we nog nooit (afkloppen) maar in Swakopmund scheelde het weinig. Terwijl Mariëlle, Ad en Wilma boodschappen gingen doen zou ik buiten op de auto’s letten zodat…

Looking down at my gear shifter, sighing – damn those magic fairies, why didn’t you fix it overnight?! Sitting down on the cold concrete driveway, I get to work to remove the gear shifter from the spline. Pulling it completely…

We zijn benieuwd naar het Angola dat wij alleen kennen van de televisiebeelden uit onze jeugd. Beelden van een geteisterd land vanwege een ruim dertig jaar aanhoudende en zinloze burger oorlog. Maar het is gelukkig al twaalf jaar rustig. Langs…

We spent the last 10 days of our African Adventure enjoying Cape Town.  What a wonderful and livable city.  We were joined there by our friends Mike and Hester whom we had originally met on the road into the Serengeti…

It’s 6 o’clock in the morning and the first light of a new day hesitantly enters the rooftop tent. I don’t need an alarm clock. Or rather: I don’t need an alarm clock anymore. I can get up when I…
