Hi! We are planning a similar trip, at least as far as namibia, almost exactly a year behind you, and have been fascinated by your very well documented diary. It has been a wonderful source of information for our trip research project - thank you so much! Especially impressed by the detail of GPS positions for each day's stop and campsite info.
We also have a Defender 110, 300 Tdi; Jenny is SA and I (John) am a Brit.
Just one point of detail - where did you obtain your visas for Congo, DRC and Angola?
Emjoy Namibia, it is a fabulous country! Best wishes John & Jenny

Neil and Katherine in our veiw the story of you crossing Angola was by far the best both in terms of story and photos your Land Rover is doing stirling service. Had some Portuguese come to visit the cave in mud splattered 4X4's they were returning from Morocco and I gave them your web site. We look foreward to your next update and please stay safe.

Glad to hear you finally made it into Namibia - with a couple of hours to spare! Well done and I'm sure you are enjoying the well earned rest now until your family joins you up there next week. Very exciting! Hoped you had updated your diary, but no such luck! Guess I'll have to wait a while. Lots of love and God bless, Barbie and Peter
