Fantastic Ride Report.........seems I am out of adjectives to describe it!

I have only spent about a month in Africa, but it is something I shall never forget!

People ask me if there is one place in the world I would like to see again, without hesitating, I say Africa.

It is an amazing life changing place, as you say, and the vastness humbles you in a way I can't explain.

What a way to see it, on a bike...........

Thanks so much for this.

Laugh Goeie trip my maat

Thank you for an excellent trip report . It is nice to see some BOERE still doing it the real way . Mind you I am also a BOER but only posting in English , for everyone else . That campsite next to the Kunene at Epupa Falls is exactly where we had camped at when we crossed the Zebra mountains coming from Ruacana .

You might recognise the 2 Baobab (Kremetart ) trees from Epupa Falls . I had it enlarged and framed as a reminder of our trip as well as another Himba CHICK photo just before Epupa . We did not do the trip by bike though , but with my Landie . My Africa Twin was in Mexico at the time . We went home for vacation . When you crossed over Van Zyl's Pass did you also sign some rocks at the foot of the mountain ?

Our trip started from home ,(Uitenhage ) all the way through Botswana up to Epupa and then down through the skeleton coast , Sossussvlei and along the West Coast To Cape Twon , where we did shark cage diving , and back home to Port Elizabeth along the famous Garden Route .

Here are some of my photo's which we took along the way .

Baie dankie vir die NICE REPORT

Where are you guys from in the Eastern Cape ?

In 1995 my wife and I, together with my brother-in-law and his wife did a trip in two vehicles through Namibia. We spent nine days camping in this wilderness area. The effect it had on us was unexpected and radical.

All four of us resigned from our jobs in Gauteng,picked up our roots, said goodbye to friends and family and went in search of a better quality of life. My wife and I moved to the coast in the Eastern Cape and her brother and his wife moved to the Northern Transvaal bushveld.

Another of our Kaokoland resolutions was to do annual offroad trips so that we don't get lost again in existence as opposed to actively living life.

i only got to here and had to reply.


now i will go back and read the rest of the report.
