    Hey all,

    The third episode of my Lost in Africa series is live on youtube.

    We head into an extremely wet Moremi!

    Let me know what you think?

    Thank you Tim, did watch your new upload, enjoyed it tremendously!

    Not sure if I would want to travel Moremi in the peak of the wet season.

    Have fun and stay safe.

    Thank you! It's not great to be honest, I asked Bianca on our last day there if she would recommend it to people and she said no. I still would though (but maybe not alone), because although the game density is substantially lower, and there are a lot of areas inaccessible, the park is so so quiet, we barely saw anyone else except very close to camp.

    You'll see in Ep 4 how extreme some of the crossings get. I misjudged one in particular, and came dangerously close to drowning Jabari.

    I think I've seen that you have fitted an aftermarket suspension.
    If so, by how much did your ground clearance and wading depth improve?
    We enjoy and appreciate your videos (but would like to see more detail of the camps )

    Hi guys,

    With this being my first attempt at vlogging, I have realised that I need to make an effort to get more footage of the camps and in the camps. I think on this trip by the time I had set up camp I was just ready for a shower/drink/food, followed closely by bed. I will definitely make more effort to talk about the camps in future though.

    If there is anything specific you want to ask, please do though, either on here or in the comments.

    I had been planning on combining the vlog with a really detailed trip report, but not sure I will have time to.

    Thanks for the feedback, really appreciate it!

    Thanks Frans, I will make a lot more effort to get camp site shots and details in future trips, unfortunately seem to have neglected it for the whole of this first trip. This is why I ask for and really appreciate the feedback! As I mentioned to Jors though, if there is anything specific you want to know please ask?

    Not specifically Tim, but always enjoy seeing some campsite footage so one know more what to expect should you visit in future. This also sometimes swing me from one place to another during planning.

    Hi Tim

    Really enjoyed those ( I went to the beginning & watched from there)
    Was in Moremi end of March, although still very wet, nothing like this..

    Many pleasant memories, we drove some of the same roads, I recognized

    I missed the first part of your question.

    Shes got a full Wild Dog suspension, worked out to about a 50mm raise.

    Hi Tim

    Really enjoyed Ep 4.. That was some deep water.. Yoh!! .. Did you have extended breather pipes ( diff & G box) installed prior to your trip?
    Oil contamination can be a concern..
    Moremi sure is a special place, first timer, but can't wait to head back..
    looking forward to more..
