Looks like the real Africa has began for you with all sorts of challanges and you're doing good - just fantastic pictures from the apes.
And you guys also met Jacques & Delphine (& Co!) and got help! It was the same for us in Nouakchott where we met them and they gave us some tools and a drill from their mighty Landy's toolbox to replace a gearbox bearing. Very decent bunch of people!

I guess you maybe do the same on the way down - still good food for the price in Africa.
If you want some change for a day or two there're good supermarkets in Libreville and in Brazzaville where you can get good european foods and even a decent cheese (but pricy, since everything is imported from far away). From Namibia the luxuries are all back (and affordible!) - hopefully it's a good motivation to push on ;)
Travel safe you two,
