Here you can find further descriptions of the trips we have made. We do it partly as assistance to those who might be planning to make a journey of their own in these parts of the world. Our first African trip was in 1992, but we do not intend to go as far back as that .
The pictures in the travel narratives are small. Some of them are in greater resolution in the gallery at the end of the travel story. Many others are of greater resolution under Photos.
As help in navigation on our travels, we use primarily Garmin (GPS nüvi 42) with Africa maps from tracks4africa.co.za. Additionally we use paper maps, Bradt's travel guides, Google Navigation (so-so good), as well as tips from other self-drivers and the local people we meet along the way.
