These guides were not written by armchair travellers and they are not about the personal experience of one person, but are the culminated experiences of a whole community of travellers.
The Tracks4Africa community travels far and wide and loves to explore Africa on their own wheels. Sometimes they travel in groups and sometimes as lone rangers, but they always travel by motorbike, sedan or 4WD. Therefore these guides are specifically aimed at self-drive travellers.
These guides provide all the information one might need to prepare for an overland trip, information on travel regions, facilities available in towns or destinations as well as camping and lodging places to stay.

Wuparo Conservancy : “You have to drive through the Wuparo Conservancy to get to Mamili NP. Because of regular seasonal flooding there is no accommodation available in Mamili. Both the Rupara Community Camp and the Nkasa Lupala Tented Lodge are situated just outside Mamili, in the Wuparo Conservancy, and offer excellent lodging and camping facilities.” - Karin Theron, 2014/03/10
Mahango Game Reserve : “There are no accommodation facilities in the Reserve. The abundance of animals makes this a worthwhile day outing. ” - Karin Theron, 2014/03/10
Khaudum Game Reserve : “Khaudum is a stunning park with lots of animals and beautiful scenery. Unfortunately the camping facilities were in despair February 2014. (Not even water.) Apparently a new tour operator took over and were waiting for the end of the raining season to start building a lodge and upgrading the camping facilities. If you like the challenge of driving in thick sand, Khaudum is the place for you! ” - Karin Theron, 2014/03/10
Dorsland boom : “This ancient Baobab tree (located just south of the Khaudum Game Reserve) is truly amazing. It has fallen down and some branches have broken off, but it still keeps on growing. When you look at it from afar, it is difficult to believe that it is in fact one single tree! ” - Karin Theron, 2014/03/07
