    Re: West Coast/Cedar Berg Camping

    Algeria, Jamaka and Sanddrif can be very busy during school holidays and long weekends, maybe you can time your visit there to avoid the crowds. A quiet Sanddrif is a good base to explore the area....

    Re: Spur Hot Rock

    As I understand it, that is the idea, to draw the salt from the salt slab.

    Re: Rim Value?

    Last year I bought a new basic (and very ugly) steel rim for just less than R 1000 from Caryota.

    On my way back I had lunch at the Tankwa Padstal and about 3 km south of the Padstal I came across a family of 5 in a sedan with a venter trailer. Four canoes on the trailer and...

    Camping in the Tankwa

    The weekend before the lockdown we went camping at Skaapwagterspos in the Tankwa National Park, it was bush camping as the only amenity is a single tree. My friends had to work the Monday, but I...

    Thank you Frans, you visited 3 of my favourite regions in SA : Tankwa, Cederberg and the northern section of the West Coast.
  12. Re: How much would you pay to camp on a farm in Namibia

    That is extremely cheap. If one takes the cost of erecting facilities, maintaining it, paying wages, never mind factoring in the cost of the land, the owner is certainly not going to make money from...

    Just incredible, usually one has one story about a trip that you can dine out on, but in your case it was a story x 100. Well done for helping and continuing to help despite all the challenges you...

    Re: Do I need to book?

    I will suggest booking at Sesriem if you want to stay in the NWR camp. There are other options in the vicinity. Kasane during SA school holidays might also post a challenge.

    You can use the second battery to jump start, just last week I have used mine to jump start our forklift at the factory.

    Re: Homebuilt overlander

    Hi Anton, very impressive! Good to see that you are doing well.

    En die overlander is seker nie so vinnig soos die Datsun waarmee jy in die 1980's op Stellenbosch mee rondgery het nie:)

    Re: Cederberg or Tankwa in February?
