Great trip to Africa

On this trip, I visited Namibia & Zambia between 16-May-2015 and 7-Jun-2015 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We had a great trip with a lot of highs and few lows.

I would have driven from Onguma straight to Ndhovu now that I know how long it is and I was happy with the car but it did struggle in a few places so I might up to a Corolla next time.

We did buy a better map than the one provided and the one place where we ran into trouble a south African couple with a Tracks 4 Africa map really helped us out, but that was our fault for being where we were. I have zero other complaints though and think Sabina did a good job helping us out.
