This is Africa

Iíve been to this place in Namibia. An unusually beautiful land and breathtaking campsite.
I have the same off-road caravan. Take a look at the surprise event!

Trouble has arrived:

The vehicle is a Jeep. Sturdy and reliable. Iíve got a Toyota Fortuner. Had 4x4 lessons to get out of tricky situations. My caravan is one size bigger than the one in the video (I needed more space for my clothes and makeup ) This type of Glamping is an awesome experience though

Everything is properly stowed away. Maximum use of space.

Re: This is Africa

I think Japanese vehicles or Jeeps seem to be the preferred 4X4's these days Minx. It used to be Land Rovers but they started having reliability issues. Not so good when your life depends on it. We have had similar things happen here when some caravans were washed away in North Wales, and here in Yorkshire where villages are usually sited in valleys, that are only there because the rivers forged them out in the past. Only natural that sooner or later it's going to flood...

I think most people have a rain related camping story to tell except me.....I always take my plastic with me and stay in 5 star...... Bugger that!...

True. This area is the Fish River Canyon so this was bound to happen. Enjoy your 5 stars
