    Default Trip reports, collation.

    In response to some requests here and on my Slowdonkey blog, I have collated the URLs of various earlier Southern African trip reports I have written. I trust that this is not considered immodest but I hope this easy access will help others in their research. These were all posted on this forum which is to my mind the definitive source of information for those researching self-drive travel in Southern Africa and even further afield.

    Thank you, this helps a lot. If it wasn't for this post I probably wouldn't have found out that you also did an Angola trip as I wouldn't have gone and searched for it directly.

    Would love to do a similar trip after our current trip. Anyone planning an Angola trip sometime next year after March?

    Thank you Stan, this makes life a lot easier. Between you and Rod I will have to visit Mica more often to replenish on steel brushes.
