    Agree, sounds like a lion.
  3. Re: Overland vehicle prep... What would you do?

    If you want higher spec shocks then at least do not include a lift.

    This would mean that standard shocks could be used as a replacement for the rest of that journey. With a lift, standard,...
  4. Re: Overland vehicle prep... What would you do?

    Yes, this will be your highest risk of a breakdown.

    I support air bags and they make sense to mitigate sagging of the rear if towing. It takes very little space to carry a couple of spare air bags...
  5. Re: Overland vehicle prep... What would you do?

    I would not lift the vehicle at all, the Prado has enough clearance if you drive it with respect for the terrain and planning your line.

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

    Re: Recovery boards from China

    I have used these recovery boards on a few occasions in mud. Some in very isolated areas with little prospect of timeous help arriving.

    The way things are going the mileage should start going down soon.

    Re: Nakatwa Camp Mudumu NP

    At Katima I would camp at Caprivi Houseboat Safaris, Curt (Sandbug) is an active member here. With a caravan it might be wise to contact them in advance. On the Zambezi.

    Re: Nakatwa Camp Mudumu NP

    Kimball, I would think you could tow to Nakwata 3 unless road conditions have changed drastically which I doubt. If it comes to the worst you can always pull in at no 2 (not bad at all) or even 1,...
