  1. Re: Elephant kills South African man in Zimbabwe's Mana Pools

    Could very well be, the expert on trailers.
  2. Re: Elephant kills South African man in Zimbabwe's Mana Pools

    Yep, what Ted says is very true in Mana.

    We were camping with 2 vehicles and a trailer at a place they call BBC camp site in Mana (I guess where the film crew was stationed when they did a...

    Re: Matusadona September 21 report

    Thanks Mike for thorough info flow.

    Great news that Matusadona is coming back on the map again. As the road from Binga to Karoi is taken care of we can expect that the leg to the park will also be...
  4. Re: Elephant kills South African man in Zimbabwe's Mana Pools

    That's not the stress one would face in an elephant vs. human encounter. It would deplete the resources seasonally that's certain but the elephants are crafty beasts and adapt their routes and...

    You've been to Mana Pools, haven't you?

    Still your blatant ignorance of factual background is shining through.
  6. Re: Landcruiser Wagon (Troopcarrier) opinions

    Hi Lizette,

    Check in with Henris (on this forum).
    He is the Troopy specialist and has converted one he uses himself for dozens of years.
    His must have done about the same mileage meanwhile.
  7. Re: Journey to the source of the Zambezi

    Thanks for the detailed report.
    It would be nice to have some pictures, I guess some of us would be interested in the new camp site (Bongololo) as it seems a good (only) starting point for Busanga...

    Re: BMW/MINI Sandton IS IT A SCAM?

    This would mean a previous generation of Mini (Austin / Morris) when it was still British. We are talking the 70's and 80's here.

    The car under OP is certainly a new generation Mini owned and...

    There is a new, unfinished construction along the road where...

    That can't work, or are you returning to Namibia (Mulilo being Katima Mulilo) which you would have passed on the way to Sioma.

  14. Re: Vehicle with off road trailer recovery

    Let me guess:

    That piece of technical beauty might weigh the same as a standard 10000 lb winch, but then you need the premium storage space extra, whereas the winch is securely positioned behind...
  15. Re: Vehicle with off road trailer recovery

    I have hydraulic winches on all the vehicles and use them quite often. Many time also use the second vehicle as an anchor point.
    My advise is "better slow and steady than fast and risky" and that...
  16. Re: Best route Kubu- Boteti river campsite and help on itinerary Moremi and Chobe

    Hi there and happy you like to visit our side here.

    One thing sticks out from your itinerary.

    You seem to plan one night in every place which gives you plenty of travel miles but very little of...
  17. Re: Vehicle with off road trailer recovery

    Okay, the technical solutions have been debated, so there are choices.

    One important thing to consider is wildlife.

    If you bog down your mind is going into tunnel vision focussing on recovery...
  18. Re: Vehicle with off road trailer recovery

    Why should I do that?
    I have seen a few but thanks for the correction of Utah, actually thinking of it the Jeeps are a dead give-away, in OZ land it would have been Patrols or LC's

    Re: Kwai area to Linyanti camp

    This cut-line is partially overgrown and it will have to cross 2 water passages, which in the second half of the year will be high due to Okavango water levels.

  21. Re: Vehicle with off road trailer recovery

    Well "yes" to watching OZ off road recoveries, but you said it right, - different environment. Plus they have to do some dramatization for effect otherwise nobody would subscribe to their channel.

  22. Re: Vehicle with off road trailer recovery

    I read it a recovery experience, not necessarily a packing list.

    One thing that worked for me many times is:

    - Off-hook the trailer
    - Drive out the vehicle
    - Turn vehicle around and approach...
  23. Re: Vehicle with off road trailer recovery

    Not exactly the same destination, both BW but very different requirements.

    CKGR might be rainy and wet, might not. If early Dec it could be all still resonably dry. In this case you'l find tracks...
  24. Re: Vehicle with off road trailer recovery

    That cannot be generic statement.
    If you get truly stuck, you first recover the vehicle, then worry about the trailer.

    Done so many times, but now with the winch I am also getting lazy, even...

    But I think it is a once-off and pre-owned, so working conditions must be checked.

    Alcohol trade ban lifted as from 06 Sep 2021 midnight.

    This means you can supply locally when entering after that date.
