Thanks Jorrie

I had been warned about this already, but as said before, I did not have the time to go all the way to Sandwhich anyway.

For anybody planning a trip to Namibia: there is a hell of a lot to do in Swakopmund/Walvisaai area. It would be good to spend several days there. The three we spent there was nowhere near enough...

Cedric, was the one you saw in Alberton area similar to this one? I've caught this one cruising the Alberton area, managed to catch a pic at Verwoerdpark shopping centre...

Only 'ZA' and orlando pirates stickers on the back, no forum sticker.

Rhett, that one has tinted windows by the look of things. The one I saw didn't, cause i could clearly see the fridge setup in the back. I also didn't see the "anti-theft" :rolling: :rolling: Orlando Pirates sticker on the one I saw. The driver was an older gentleman with grey hair that was driving.... hmmmm.... didn't look like a "Pirates" fan :confused:

At woodmead shopping centre. No bonnet scoop so unsure if it's a diesel or petrol. Do they still make the 4.2 for these aid organizations? GL badge at the back.

Often see these GL spec patrols (without wheel flares), in nelspruit (with moz plates)...

That contraption in front seems a rather unfortunate alternative to replacing the tupperware.

Function over form.

And rather careless of them to leave the satellite locator on the roof. That is an expensive piece of kit and just a magnetic mount...
