Angola - Doodsakker Sep2016
« on: September 27, 2016, 01:10:35 pm »
Just want to share a few photos of a trip we did in Angola. We had 5 days of bike riding around the Flamingo Lodge area, down the Doodsakker to the Cunene river and back again. 1100km of playing in the sand.
The desert landscape was awesome, and the riding even better! Big dunes have a different meaning there. Imagine climbing a dune (with your bike), starting at sea level, and at the top you are a 100m above sea level!
These are just the best bikes to explore these areas. No dune to high. No dry river bed preventing us from reaching the top of a gorge.

Great pics of a fantastic landscape. Is there a fuller report elsewhere or can we expect one here?

That cruiser must have got stuck in a mosselgat. eish.
Did that trip in 2005 in a 4x4. Will post a picture of the trawler in those days. Amazing how the sand has claimed the boat.

I love this!

thanks for sharing.

I'm also probably in the process of going even lighter towards one of these road legal endure type of bikes. Lekker to read a trip report done with them.  :thumleft:
