  1. Re: Mabusehube cutline road to Mabuasehube from Sekoma

    I have never stayed at Springbok pan, but good friends of ours did. They bought excellent wood there which they did manage to take over the border.

    There is the Camel Park in Tsabong as well...
  2. Re: Water levels in the Okavanga Delta and Chobe

    The rain water from Angola is still weeks aways from the Delta.

    But it IS rainy season and there can be mud and water in the Delta from localized rain.

    It is just a thing one has to accept...

    Re: Camping in KNP

    It is the OP's first trip, chances are 99% he does not know what he is after.

    Smaller or bush camps are not suitable for most younger kids, they get bored. I have camped long enough with my son...

    Re: Camping in KNP

    But precious little for 2 boys aged 9 and 13 to do all day long.



    I like this suggestion, Letaba is a very child friendly camp. 8-)

    The other option, to what is suggested above, is Letaba...
  5. Re: Mabusehube cutline road to Mabuasehube from Sekoma

    We have used both routes, the Kokotsha cutline we have done 4 times and Tsabong road twice. My preferred route by far is the Tsabong road. Also keep in mind that driving all the way from Gauteng to...

    Re: Planned trip to Nambia in April 2020

    As stop over in Mariental, I can recommend Bastion farmyard.8-)

    You seem to be spending a long time in Swakop, is that intentional?

    I would rather camp for 2 nights at Aus and do a day trip...
  7. Re: Photo trip report, Namibia south and west

    The Desert tour is a memory we will all treasure for a lifetime, even my 16 year old son (who really wanted to do dune boarding and quad bikes) said it was the highlight of the trip for him.

  8. Re: Water levels in the Okavanga Delta and Chobe

    Kobus predicts nice rain over the entire western Zambia and eastern Angola in the next two weeks. In fact the entire central part of Angola.

    The dunes.......it is just so, so, so beautiful, majestic and unique. One cannot help but feel that you are in a really special place. The contrasts, textures and colors are just out of this world....

    Our desert tour is booked for the 24th of December and with great anticipation we wait in the parking terrain of Desert Adventures. In line of what seems to be tipical Swakopmund weather it is...
  14. Re: Photo trip report, Namibia south and west

    The main reason for the visit to Swakopmund is the living desert tour. We opted to do the tour with Chris Nel. What a fantastic guy
  15. Re: Photo trip report, Namibia south and west

    From Erindi we aim for Swakopmund where we are scheduled to spend 4 nights including Christmas. We exit Erindi on the western side and join the tar at Omaruru. This is a delightful town again with...

    While we do tow, I absolutely agree with you. And it ties in with Stan's comment as well. I have never seen our style of travelling as overlanding nor felt the need to brand it as such even though...

    a) Yes doable. We have done it the other way round, just make sure you reach TR early enough because it is about an hour's drive to Rooiputs. If you are too late, they might not let you proceed if...

    Next stop Erindi. I was doubtful, but we actually had a very good, relaxing, quiet and comfortable time here. They have had good rains and there are passing thunderstorms each afternoon of the 2...
  23. Re: Photo trip report, Namibia south and west
