This was 8 years ago, who would have thought that I would land up there again in 2021.

I have seen that there have been some new views of this RR.

I have also been going through it to copy some of the photos here to relate the then to the now in my current RR, but it seems that some of the photos have just blanked. Anyone on some reason why this would have happened?

I think I still have all the original photos stashed in a file somewhere, but that is a mission I do not have time for right now. It would be interesting to compare and see how things have changed during the last 8 years.

First time for me. Fish River Canyon is incredible, and I laughed at "the DJUICES flowing". Great RR!

Thank you. I have no idea why this happened or how to solve it. I will find a way, just no time right now.

This was my first venture into Africa.

I know it is worth reading beginning to end, but I have a bigger picture in mind. I know that time is precious to everyone, but please, if you have the time, start from the beginning. Why?

You will eventually understand that you are supporting my current cause and helping me achieve what I really have set out to achieve, but it all takes time. Something most of us have very little of, but please bear with me.

Thank you.
Marius.

I have read the whole report from start to finish. Not in one go, did it over a week, so I could enjoy it
Well done !!
This is the type of adventure that will stay with you for a lifetime.
I see that you are a regular traveler: any idea how many kilos you have done so far ?
And, if you have time, give us a list of what you pack on a tour like this
I need to say again Well done !! And thank you very much

Hi Sabre and thank you.

Done over 200 000 km, about 38 000 km were Africa trips.

I will do a packing list soon and post it.

But first it is Horizons Unlimited now.
