    Re: Patrol 4.8 GL manual P63 questions

    Not a model on the SA market.
    The 4.8 was the GU Y61 and mostly automatic.

    Do you have more on the specs?

    If it is a 4.8 manual in Station wagon format it would be a pearl.
  2. Re: Halogen to projector HID conversion

    Why don't you go straight to LED, you would convert the HID sooner or later anyway.
    LED has some fantastic features and is much easier on power usage and switches on instantly.

  3. Re: Bots in a minivan... with 3 small kids?

    Contrary to the respondents from above I am of the opinion that this is not entirely a holiday trip.

    In this you don't need to go to the typical holiday places but it would be a better picture if...
  4. Re: Best route Muvv lodge (near Chirundu ) to South Luangwa NP?

    Firstly the name is MVUU lodge or camp, just for the records.

    Unfortunately you would have to return to the Chirundu - Kafue - Lusaka road then head out on T4 (Great Eastern Road) towards Chipata ...
  5. Re: How to book a mokoro trip at Mboma boat station?

    I've never seen mokoro trips being offered at 3rd Bridge.
    They have alu boats but sometimes struggle to reach the main channel due to vegetation having moved.

    As this season is very dry you might...
  6. Re: How to book a mokoro trip at Mboma boat station?

    First I think to remember that the licence for Mboma station has changed and Mankwe no longer is involved.
    I can't document that but it is in the back of my memory.

    From how they operated...
  7. Re: Garmin Hack: Credit Card Details et al nicked

    How long is your card valid?

    Re: Route Advice-Maun to CKGR

    Good choice, now add this to the excitement:
    Leave the trar road earlier where the turn-off is signosted towards "Segoro" roughly 30 kms outside Maun.
    You'll have a bridge over the Boteti then a...

    The Klein Serengeti is turning off from inside the Khowarib Schlucht trail about halfways into the direction Sesfontein Camps at the river.

    Re: Just don't get some people...

    I think Walter has made a sensible observation and it is sad to see that the respect for nature is completely lost to some of those who claim they are liking it.

    In my early days of traveling the...
  11. Re: Kaokoveld - Sesfontein to Marienfluss

    I think you can get the permit at the vet gates when entering the area.

    Have you considered to "step out" of the Khowarib river bed and visit Klein Serengeti, that would be the type of territory...

    Informative report, thanks for sharing.
    Some interesting issues raised and hope you enjoyed it.

    Re: Khubu island to Nxai pan

    I recommend the straight one up to the connection road. The direct one to Gweta is however more attractive but there are many options to get lost in one of the cattle posts as there are virtually...
  17. Re: Violence, looting and protests in Lusaka

    I don't think I can agree to this. If Africans are grouped together and the issue is dissatisfaction (for whatever reason that is) they start rioting just because there is an opportunity to loot.

    Yes, but then you have your main battery still charged and can start the vehicle.

    Re: I bought a what

    Jelo, have you tried that at all?

    It will never work as in quarter hour you can possibly charge a battery by max 20AH (not on idle that is) and it will run down in a short while.
    That is if you...
  20. Re: Central Kalahari Game Reserve advice needed

    We had a few summers whereas CKGR was inundated with rains and turned into a quagmire. I must say it is more the exception than the rule but it happens.

    I think it is possible to rock-up without reservations during the Dec/Jan period.

    I would however do the following:

    Best option is Chobe Safari Lodge and it is the most direct approach from the airport, just down the embankment road.
    Best vistas rom bar or restaurant deck.

    Re: Botwana South - Something to see?

    Goo Moremi has its own campsite and AFAIK you can do your walks without a guide.
    But bear in mind, it is a community effort and people need to make a living so maybe a guide will add some value.

    Re: Toyota ad banned

    Maybe not "creating" hooliganism but being the base to excuse hooliganism.

    Because you can always "justify" you have seen it in the ads so it is fine to copy.

    Good old times indeed.
