    Re: Trip Update, we are in Botswana

    I understand you have had to quarantine in Botswana having tested positive for Covid. I’m so sorry to hear that. I also understand that you are now out of quarantine and have made it into Zambia....

    Asante sana. A terrific blog post.
  4. Re: 11 months to E. Africa and back and...plans and updates

    I agree that parts looked better than when we did it in 2014. But I’m absolutely sure that a grader could not possibly be put on the escarpment climb: the top of the escarpment, yes, but not the...

    Bud missed using all that time whilst quarantining to write an update/make a blog!
  6. Re: 11 months to E. Africa and back and...plans and updates

    Thanks, Caldriver. Great video - terrible music! Of course, vehicle mounted cameras flatten everything out. The 05 is certainly a great adventure.

    Looking forward to your blog update.

    We have many, many different configurations depending on the wind and rain. Apart from Namibia and South Africa, wind wasn’t a real problem. Some of our configurations are for one-nighters such as...

    Exactly, Tony!

    Have camped in colossal rain both in East Africa and heavy rain and storms in South Africa. Plus Scotland is not exactly known for its lack of rain…

    Merci beaucoup! What a wonderful trip. Congratulations.

  12. Re: Tanzania Hybrid Safari - Early March 2023

    It sounds a great trip - with some days being cosseted at Namiri Plains camp and then getting a taste of overlanding East Africa style driving yourselves.

    I have a few comments. I wonder if you...

  15. Re: Trip Report Kenya, a first self-drive through 5 Parks

    I’m afraid Safaritalk does not seem to allow non-subscribers to view trip reports. In the past, non-subscribers could read them.

    I would love to hear about your trip - particularly as I gave so...

  31. Re: 14 Days in Kenya - First Time in Africa

    Yes, it does make sense that the southeast Serengeti is in a partial rain shadow from the Ngorongoro highlands. I found some academic papers online on rainfall patterns in the Serengeti.
  32. Re: 14 Days in Kenya - First Time in Africa

    That’s great news for us with Kenyan-registered private vehicles that Tanzanian parks now have the lower fee in line with the other EAC countries. Asante sana!
