    Hi Pedro

    I see you skipped Richtersberg on this trip. It was our favourite campsite. Maybe next time?!

    Really like that spot too but it may be a bit exposed to the Notherly wind which seems to be the prevailing wind. The rapids in the Nothern part though seemed to attract more bird life - Goliath...

    Has anyone given any thought to how best to approach a flat tyre while driving through a twisty steep mountain pass like Akkedis or Helskloof pass in the Richtersveld?

    Two door vs four door

    Sports car vs luxury sedan

    Towability and manoeuvrability vs comfort and convenience

    Hi Bruce

    Which model of Nespresso machine are you using? Where do you keep it? Only used when plugged into shore power or can your inverter run it?

    Sounds like a great idea! :)
