    Tx, Tony this is spot on. Just for all: when is it considered rain season?

    Ok it will still take 8 to 10 hours for 40 to 50 kms. Thus usually in the early mornings. But yes it can surprise you.

    IMHO, the Pajero is far better value for money . Just a question regarding the drone footage over the Moon landscape. Did you stay on the designated roads, or did you wander a bit off track.

    Thanks for the report. Very useful information on this thread. Currently fine tuning a trip early next year.

    Don't count on this. Last Sunday we had good early morning rains and the rivers came shortly after lunch time. They can come any time.

    Lost in translation is my guess, a lesson going forward given the number of languages spoken in our country.

    However, I really enjoyed your trip report, well done and thank you! Fantastic photography, well composed shots captured the mood.
