During the 2015 Gelandewagen Club Kaokoveld trip an idea was formed and commitments where made.

“We would like to……”

Friday April 20th , 10 Gelandewagens will depart on an epic Namibia trip to the Kaokoveld . The ten vehicles are a mixture experience (460’s) and new technologie (461’s) ranging from GD300’s, 280GE, G320290GDT, some converted and newer 300CDI’s.

We hope that with this thread we can share our pre-trip, during trip and post trip experiences with you………………………

Judging by the reports of the Kunene flooding it looks like you guys are in for an adventurous trip. Enjoy and keep us posted!

If you reallly get stuck - keep us moggies on speed dial. Just take lots of food and water as it will take us two weeks to get there... ;)

Cut Kunene River lodge out, they are flooded. Sent Riaan a Whatapp with the information.
There are contact details, keep your fingers on it. Maybe it is ok by then.
Also your trip along the river might be affected.
No matter what, it should be nice and green up there..
