So I am working in DRC now, so I figured why not just temp import the wagon. anyway, a quote of 4000usd later the car is back in SA. a little rich for my blood. I made it to Joburg in 3 days with border crossings, it wasnt easy, but the ol wagon gets the job done and passes anything like its standing still.

Relaxing after packing the wagon:






No photos from the congo side as I was full go go go to make it through the border as early as possible as both congo and zambia take ages.


Into Zambia:




Saved this guy from getting run over:




The crossing from Zambia into Bots, the locals say the bridge will be done this year.




Waking up in Botswana to this:



Then hitting rain:


Rolled over 292000kms!!!



And finally back in Joburg, with a leaking fuel pressuresensor. wagon didnt quit running so that was a win. I jsut replaced the complete rail and sensor yesterday. 2 hours in out and done in the storage unit I leave it in while at work.

I have been slowly working on my blog... but its painfully slow, between the internet and working long hours its taking a bit. but I have some time off coming up.

We should see some more travelling in the next 2 weeks, but in South America, then again in June with the wagon in South africa as I will make a run to Lesotho.

So here are a few photos to keep you occupied while I work my way through this.

I loved Namibia the most, so here is a photo from the remote parts of northern namibia,













And here is some nice animal photos I was able to snap:

Thank you for sharing - lots of good memories stimulated by your photos. I'm going to view the videos soon.

Where are you based when you're in DRC? SOmewhere in Katanga I'm guessing?

One question: have you needed to have two spare wheels at any time? We've always had one in South America and needed it (but not a second); we had two in Africa on the last big trip and didn't need any at all; and we carried one initially, then added a second in WA (State recommendation for the GRR) and didn't need to have two (we had one unfixable puncture so used one spare once, didn't need to have two). I know it's a risk-based decision and I'm interested in your experience and opinion.

PS: you took a Pajero to Africa, we took ours (Montero) to Australia...

Thanks Guys,

Was based in Katanga. Now am actually in Turkey, as a home. which is great. shipped the wagon here. replacing the gearbox which sucks. but that is life.
