    Default Trip Report - 4 Rivers of the Caprivi

    We traveled fairly extensively through Southern Africa in our beloved Ford Courier camper van in previous years, but life happens and we found ourselves 15 years later keen to do another.

    Chevy bought, OZ tent, drawer and dual battery systems sorted we find a gap, and plan for a trip to the Caprivi for almost a month!!!

    After reading many a trip report by Stan, Stranger, Witklipbank and especially Mitsu Fan who did a similar trip, to name a few, I have decided to reciprocate.

    This is the first part.
    Part two added.
    Final part added.

    Certainly not going to wait 15 years to do another trip. The bug has bitten.

    Thanks to all that read the reports and the positive comments.

    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.
