  1. Re: Namibia re-opens to international tourists 1 Sept

    the airlines require a negative test, basically same as when you fly in.

    I heard today that the day 5 test may no longer apply, but just something I heard, nothing concrete. Hopefully an official...
  2. Re: Namibia re-opens to international tourists 1 Sept

    I hear what you are saying, the 6 locations are better than expected though actually.
    There is just still quite a bit of confusion as to how the whole thing will work, and how to plan your holiday...

    Re: Land Cruiser 300 - 3.3L V6 diesel

    I am interested in what will be coming in the 70 series. Will it be a de-tuned V6?
    Am sure we won't be running out of V8's any time soon though.

    Problem is yes if you are tested positive. Other problem is how does the test get done?

    It is at least a step in the right direction, but still too many questions.

    Yes, but prices have gone up. We used to get "imports" for way cheaper than what "locally" produced models would go for, but pricing is now almost on par with the rest of the second hand market.

    How much lift etc have you done? I remember on my gen2 SWB I wanted to go to 33's but would have had to do a ball joint flip etc to get them to fit. Ended up staying on 31/10.5/15.
