    We had 2 x 90amp/hr LC batteries, 1 of...

    Re: Richtersveld roads condition

    Frank, I think you might have a problem with your planned route, as far as I know you have to check-in at Sendelingsdrif, first, so not direct to Richtersberg. Phone or email the Park, to confirm,...

    Re: Richtersveld roads condition

    Hi,

    I am sure a number of Eplorers have been towed over these routes. You will have to take it easy over Akkedis Pass, 1 or 2 fairly tight turns but definitely manageable, the biggest problem can...

    Re: Planned trip Gonarezhou

    Hi Henk,

    In Aug 2018 we left Punda at 0600 and only arrived at Mabalauta at 1600, we were not rushing but did not really waste any time along the way. (3 vehicles and 2 of us were towing) No...

    You can have a look at this one too, might be a bit more/better than basic accommodation. The campsite and lodge/chalets are not right next to each other. https://www.bigcavematopos.com/

    Re: Border posts open or closed?

    I don't see any other strategy, but your turn around one, and back track. I am not sure I would do that dune road into and out of Mabua for 2 nights though. Might be better to cut your losses and...
