About this site.

Lani is the name given to our latest Landy and we hope to have many adventurous travels with her.

Charmain and I have been on quite a few ‘adventures’ but have never consolidated our travels in one place.

This will be an attempt to share it with all our friends and family as well as anybody that wants to follow our travels.


Our background colour has been changed to the colour of the Year, called Ultra Violet.


Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.

Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality.

Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection.

  2. Haai Paul,
    ongelooflikke plek. Theuns het vir my ‘n foto gestuur terwyl dit nog in aanbou was. Met jou toestemming sal ek dit graag op die website wil bysit.
    Deel gerus ander staltjies rondom die bou.


  3. Neels,
    baie dankie. Ek waardeer die offer. Ek sal kontak maak met jou nader aan einde van jaar om te hoor waar die tenk is en of jou offer nog staan.

  4. Dankie Frans.

  5. Haai Arista,
    baie maklik om deur die grens te gaan.
    ‘n Paar punte om in gedagte hou.
    Van hierdie website af:


    Namibia’s daylight saving time (GMT+1) is from the first Sunday of April to first Sunday in September. (ie. The times specified will then be an hour earlier). The border post between the Republic of Namibia and the Republic of South Africa at Mata Mata was opened on 12th October 2007. The nearest town to this border is Koës. Only bona fide tourists to the Park can use the access facility between South Africa and Namibia. Tourists are required to stay over for two nights in one or more of the overnight facilities of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Tourists from Namibia may make use of the new entrance to Kgalagadi, as a day or overnight visitor access point without checking in with the border officials at Twee Rivieren as long as they return to Namibia. If, however, a tourist leaves the Park to go in to South Africa or Botswana they will have to go to the passport control at Twee Rivieren. Payments can be done in South African Rand at the Border and in Namibia itself. Tourists crossing into Namibia make sure you have a ‘ZA’ sticker on your car if travelling from South Africa, which can be purchased at a ‘AA’ agent or at outdoor retailers. On entering Namibia you will need to pay a road levy of R154 per trailer and R242 per vehicle.

  6. Haai Natasha, jammer, sien nou eers jou vraag.
    Jong enigste plek wat ‘n verskeidenheid het is jou naaste Land Rover garage.
    Hulle het gewoonlik ‘n winkeltjie by ontvangs wat dit verkoop.
    Loer ook hierso.
