  1. Re: Okavango: Any budget operators for solo woman traveller?

    Penduka Safaris are the oldest mobile safari company in Southern Africa. Still run by the legendary Barnard (Isak) family. They are certainly expert but I was shocked to see that a 12 day mobile...
  2. Re: Camp meal menu for extended trips - how do you plan it?

    On longer trips we revert to two meals a day, brunch towards midday and supper once the coals are ready and the beers are beginning to get bones in them.

    On arising early in the morning before...

    Re: Why a "high lift jack"

    We travel solo most often and to remote areas. I have retrieved our L.C 76 series on four separate occasions from very difficult situations and bog-downs where I was unable to use our winch. These...
  4. Re: Hello-Bud from USA, coming for 20 months!

    Welcome Bud, researching an exciting trip is a lot of fun in itself.

    Re: Intended Trip to Zim June/July 2020

    I agree that I personally would never consider taking the Kariba Ferry to traverse the Lake. This is very expensive.

    Also confirm that we thoroughly enjoyed the road between Karoi and Binga and...

    Re: Rift Valley lakes under threat

    A rise in the level of 300m horizontal, would not have had too much effect on the few facilities there are in and around Lake Turkana as far as I can remember.

  32. Re: OVERLAND REPORT: SUDAN via EAST AFRICA, 2015/6. SLOW DONKEY.

    Hi Fips, thank you for the greeting. We continue to rue how relatively few fellow travelers we met and befriended on our African travels. Not from lack of effort though.
  33. Re: 7 Month Southern/East African Trip Rwanda and Uganda

    Yes I would think that the abovementioned road along Lake Kivu will be great now. There were massive earthworks and reconstruction going on 5 years ago.
  34. Re: 7 Month Southern/East African Trip Rwanda and Uganda

    In the main looks reasonable, perhaps some small tweaks.

    Rwanda, I agree that Lake Kivu is worthy of inclusion and the route advised by WW. I would not go back to Kigali as itemized in no 3.
