Best place is just sitting in it.

Previous Hilux must have been Chimfunshi in Northern Zambia.

Wherever I go in my bakkie is a good place to be.

Have done a camping trip through the southern part of Namibia and a trip to Mozambique that really stand out.

I am always so busy preparing my bakkie for the great adventure, it is never available to actually GO on the trip.

Last March we ended up taking my 1300 Corolla 3600km of dirt and gravel on a round trip to Namibian dunes! We now refer to it as the Toyota Land Corolla

wow 5 years and 60 000 km later ....


Time Namibia was memorable. My parents lived in Luderitz before I was born, thus it was very special to go there. And we were treated to the best possible weather. Namibian Valey of a thousand hills certainly left a lasting impression.

Baviaans :thumbup:


Then Botswana :cooldude:


Actually took a nice drive in Elders today :yahoo: :celebrate:

man I LOVE that Hilux !!!!!
