  2. Re: Houseboat safari down the Zambezi Sept 2017

    Thanks, lovely photos. Also did the houseboat excursion with Curt (Sandbug on this forum) at Caprivi Houseboat Safaris in 2015. Highly enjoyable if budget stretches far enough.

    Frans I think your timing is ideal for the Okavango. There is a phenomenon called the "barbel run" on the upper Okavango River (Panhandle) where there is a mass barbel migration and great tiger...

    As a general principle try and travel from north to south. Then the sun is at your back and the flower show tends to be more spectacular as the flowers turn their heads to face the sun. Start in...

    Re: Stranded?

    Christoff, long term overlanders might be from foreign countries. They are going to have to fly home asap. Their biggest problem is going to be finding somewhere to store their overlanding vehicle...

    Tony send a PM to member Jayefe here in East London. He grew up in Moz and keeps a sharp eye on happenings there via mails from local contacts.

  18. Re: Land Cruiser 4.2 1HZ Double cab speed uphill?

    We don't all go for blondes :).

    I prefer the straight diesel 1HZ; I don't tow; I feel no need to travel fast when off the beaten track or outside SA's highways.
