  1. Re: First time to Zambia - need some Visa and Covid info

    No yellow fewer checks and I think that scare is history.

    Malaria in Kafue and Lower Zambezi is always a risk, for Lusaka alone I wouldn't bother. (The air is to polluted to keep the mozzies going...

    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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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...

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

    Re: removeable winch built

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

  11. Re: Alcohol Purchases and Cartage in Botswana

    Alcohol trade ban lifted as from 06 Sep 2021 midnight.

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

    This is NOT a picture of 3rd Bridge.

  35. Re: Alcohol Purchases and Cartage in Botswana

    Alcohol trade not allowed in BW ight now, but it might change over time.

    SA has obviously lifted that ban so it should be possible to stock up in SA.

    BW might follow with some time delay.
