    Re: Tankwa Karoo National Park

    We were at Perdekloof for 3 days last month, road up Gannaga Pass is shocking but the main access roads from the south were in great shape up to about 10kms from reception, best we have ever had.

    Re: Ewiks movers remote cable question.

    I fitted an Ewiks to my Sundowner during lock down. I explained to Kyle that I did not want a permanent fitting in my nose-cone and he supplied me with this plug and connector. I ended up mounting...

    Re: Pajero LWB long range fuel tank

    That is the tank that is visible. I think I saw something from Gerberís that they have increased the thickness of the metal by .5mm since my tank was made.

    I catch the towbar long before the tank...

    Re: Pajero LWB long range fuel tank

    Tobie, I have had Gerberís tank for nearly 5 years. We do a lot of overlanding, not really 4x4 trails and have not really had any problems. Safari Centre in Cape Town did the fitting. Slight...

    Re: Wanted : Gen4 Pajero Factory coils

    I have a pair of front springs, complete with shocks. They are from 2015 but virtually un-used. You are welcome to them if you do not find something closer to you.

    I would agree on the LWB. I originally had a 2.8 SWB and am now on my second LWB. The SWB is a fun vehicle, that we had some great trips in, but the problem came on longer trips when water and extra...

    Re: Driving Cape Town to Maun - which route?

    Tim, you might be quite pushed to do the drive in 3 days, one of them is going to have to be very long. In October last year I went from Simon's Town to Kasane in 4 days. I was not towing but took it...

    Re: Richtersveld roads condition

    Hi,

    I am sure a number of Eplorers have been towed over these routes. You will have to take it easy over Akkedis Pass, 1 or 2 fairly tight turns but definitely manageable, the biggest problem can...

    You can have a look at this one too, might be a bit more/better than basic accommodation. The campsite and lodge/chalets are not right next to each other. https://www.bigcavematopos.com/
