O ur next expedition is to the amazing country of Lesotho! It is a landlocked country completely surrounded by South Africa, bordering the majestic Drakensberg. And a major part of an expedition is the preparation that takes place before the trip starts! We decided to test the equipment, accessories, gear and clothing in a safe place but still in true African conditions. The Karkloof Valley was an obvious choice.
Have a look at the different vehicle accessories, outdoor clothing, our 4×4 trailer and camping equipment that makes a safari that little bit more comfortable.
On the way to Karkloof in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. This vehicle loves dirt roads… Navigation is made easy with Tracks4Africa and our CASKA Multimedia and Navi System.
The camp set up in the beautiful Karkloof. Our vehicle and Metalian trailer were outfitted by Front Runner Vehicle Outfitters and equipped with Camp Cover Canvas Bags and Protective Covers.
The first night's impressive, clear view of the Milky Way… thanks Grant Pitcher for the great photography!
An early morning walk across fields to an indigenous forest and a nearby waterfall. K-Way keeps us comfortable and dry.
We took the easy way out with MAXTRAX, getting us out of a muddy bog in no time.
Exploring a river during the heat of the day. Island Tribe gave us the sun protection we needed.
There is treasure everywhere… The K-Way Kilimanjaro II backpack is perfect for day walks.
Back at camp the batteries are charged with Flexopower's Kalahari-162 4×4 Solar Kit and a C-TEK D250 S.
A good nights' rest in the Feather-Lite roof top tent. Gas, water and extra fuel are carried on the Front Runner roofrack.
