It’s an intriguing question: if you could visit just one off-road destination this year, where would you end up going? We put this question to our regular advertisers as well as some of our friends in the overland field. Their answers make for great reading and should hopefully inspire your travel plans.
Kgalagadi Pans & Moremi, Botswana
If there were only one place I could go to this year, it would be Botswana, and my favourite destination, Moremi National Park. Moremi is a 4x4er’s paradise. In the summer months, you can’t drive 400 m without going through water. There is also the delta with all its water, and there are many roads and tracks that cross all this water. For me, a hard-core 4x4 enthusiast, there is nothing better. I remember two years ago when I was driving to Dead Tree Island, and the Delta had filled up so that the track we were on was under water. All we could see were the long reeds sticking out on either side of the track. We drove for 500 m through water that was between 800 mm and 1 m deep.
