  1. Re: Sand Ridge Rd vs Ngwezumba Rd & the Marsh Rd?

    Thank you so much for the info, this is gold! When searching for info on this road I did run across the story of the couple that was stranded and the loss of husband. Ominous indeed, certainly a...
  2. Re: Sand Ridge Rd vs Ngwezumba Rd & the Marsh Rd?

    Ah, I was wondering if I had that right. Regardless, how is the Marsh road recently?

    The attached screen shot is what I meant. The blue route is the one I was curious about. Seem like it would...
  3. Ngwezumba/Nogatsaa rd in Chobe

    For the drive from Ihaha to Savuti I know the Sand ridge road is the usual route, but looking at T4A I see Ngwezumba road through Chobe. Does anyone have any recent reports from this road and/or the...

    We did the reverse of your first option, more or less, in March. D3703 from Opuwo to Etanga is easy going. Etanga to somewhere around Otijha is slow going. Not technical, just rocky, and we found...

    Re: Land Cruiser 70 Namib edition

    They didn't mention the most important part - a second cup holder!

    Think that is available aftermarket? I would love to get one. How they can only have one cup holder standard is beyond me.

  15. Re: What would the perfect rooftop tent look like?

  17. Re: What would the perfect rooftop tent look like?

    Stan and Tony both have excellent points. I'm not sure there is a "perfect" roof top tent, because of course it matters what you want to do with it and what kind of vehicle you have.
