Re: Ngumula Lodge - Mozambique

I haven't been up to Inhambane in many years, last time was just after the Chinese redid the EN1. How many hours to get there from JHB/PTA nowdays? People told me 8 hours from Komatipoort to Inhambane, but we did it in 9hrs. However, that included a stop for petrol (with the 4.8 you have to include...

Ngumula Lodge - Mozambique

This is not a real trip report, but I would like to tell you about Ngumula Lodge near Inhambane in Mozambique (www.ngumulalodge.co.za) that we visited this month. My wife and I don't usually go where the crowds are and always look for more secluded, but comfortable places to stay during our break-aw...

Re: Firestone rear Air Spring Helpers

I had a set of these fitted the week before I left for my Kalahari Safari and It raised my heavily loaded vehicle beyond my expectations. With the bags pumped only to 1.5 bar (max permissible is 2.5 bar) the vehicle stood slightly higher than when unladen. Ride quality and handing was unaffected, b...

Re: Portable Luna box and other questions

I don't understand the reason why you have a set of cables with clamps going in through the side of the box. Where is the other end of that set going?

Re: Re-Call Airbags

Not extremely surprised, but the message from the VIN check webpage and the message from Nissan SA are not the same. On the VIN check site I am advised that mine is one of the few vehicles affected. But according to the local dealer and Nissan SA, my VIN is not affected and there is no recall on my...

Re: Bluetooth Streaming

And it works very well in the patrol, even connected to the steering wheel controls I installed a similar one and now also have a reverse camera (very ...
