    Default Looking for vehicles to join SA/Botswana/Zambia/Zimbabwe/SA Overland Trip MayJune

    Looking for vehicles to join us for a long trip from Joburg through Botswana (along the complete Hunters Road) to Kasane, the northern Kafue National Park in Zambia, back via Livingstone and Vic Falls, Hwange National Park in Zimbawe, and then via Francistown back to Joburg.

    The route in Kafue National Park in Zambia was put together with the help of some of this forum group that visited Kafue in October last year, and as featured in the latest
    Drive Out (March 2013) magazine, as well forum members that stay in Zambia or that have visited Zambia extensively (follow this link http://4x4community.co.za/forum/showthread.php?t=128769 for their full trip report).

    Estimated kilometres will be 5500 over +– 23 days starting in Joburg from 24 May - 18 June 2013. You may join us anywhere along the route to Nata, Botswana on the way up.


    You have to be self-sufficient because we will be mostly doing bush and normal camping with the odd stay in self-catering chalets.


    Except for any direct expenses that we may incur for doing the accommodation bookings and a small charge for a sat phone-hire, there will be no cost from our side for the trip but you will be responsible for
    all your own expenses.

    We will be travelling with a Land Rover Discovery 2 V8 4,6 towing a Venter Bushbaby off-road trailer. Your vehicle must be a 4x4 and have a center diff-lock, be in a sound on and off-road condition and must have a capacity for 160 litres of fuel and 40 litres of water. Only
    off-road trailers and caravans allowed. You will be required to carry comprehensive spares for your vehicle/s and a complete recovery kit as per our requirements.

    Both my companion and myself are seasoned off-road and overland travellers, mechanically minded and long-standing members of the Land Rover Owners Club. Radio coms are essential and we will be using VHF radios.


    You must be taking Malaria prophylactics, carry Coartem together with malaria test kits (that we can supply) and have Yellow Fever vaccinations that are in-date. In addition you must have specific insurance for emergency medical evacuation.


    The number of vehicles will be limited to four and we need to book accommodation, so first come first served.


    This trip will take place regardless if other vehicles join us or not. If we do not get company, we will be going solo.


    For further details contact Alex on +27 82 600 7688 or PM me.

    Default Supplies - Kasane

    Hi Alex,

    I have a butchery and fresh produce business in Kasane, Botswana.

    We stock export quality Botswana beef, karoo lamb and pork, fruit and veg and dairy products imported from South Africa.

    We are also able to supply you with ice, firewood and charcoal and a variety of dry goods, spices, sauces, tinned food, etc.

    We have supplied hotels and lodges in Kasane for the last 7 years and have 14 years experience in this industry.

    Please contact Neil on +267 72 103 700 or email: [email protected] for further information.

    Thank you and regards,

    Neil Bennett

    Neil can I impose on you to please post more detail?

    What is the name of your business and is it new? Where exactly is it situated? Ever since Mario's changed hands/closed down, people have been having problems obtaining good meat in Kasane. Would you be able to vacuum pack and pre-freeze meat? You are speaking to a very wide audience here.

    Please could you post to the Botswana section... am sure the mods won't treat it as a commercial advert.
