Hi All, some pics of our week end trip Walvis - Aba Huab - Springbok water. Trip went smooth only one puncture on the Amarok.

Got some videos of Crossing the Ugab River while flooding, I will try put on You Tube and send you the links.

Unbelievable to see the green coming out of the ground where normally just ground and sand after our heavy rains.
