  1. Re: First time to Zambia - need some Visa and Covid info

    Thanks Kalahari Safari - good to know.

    Any info about Yellow Fever injections - is this required?

    Re: Eating out in Bethlehem

    Some feedback :
    We ate at the Park Hotel. Good food, sensible prices, great service.

    Re: Eating out in Bethlehem

    Thanks Petri - we're not towing the BL this time so no parking needed (maybe next time:)).
    Sounds like the Park Hotel is the place for a nice meal.
    Thanks to all for the responses.

  11. Sticky: Re: Baviaans Kloof and Kouga Route Road Conditions

    Steytlerville to Patensie is a public road, with traffic going in both directions. But definitely 4x4 only.
  12. Sticky: Re: Baviaans Kloof and Kouga Route Road Conditions

    While you could probably make it, I would definitely not recommend it. There are places where passing would be impossible. Some long steep descents and ascents with quite rocky sretches.
    Let's hear...

    Re: Routes on Garmin LM42

    Thanks hunter26.
    I'm still baffled. Uploaded way points show up in favourites, but I can't find uploaded routes anywhere on the device.
    So I'm thinking this unit maybe doesn't support routes?
