technology overload

AS children, we used to marvel at the vehicles in TV shows and movies like Knight Rider and James Bond, not because they looked great or were extremely fast, but because of all the cool technology in these cars. Who didn’t need a talking car that could drop oil slicks at will and gun down pursuers before driving underwater? The passenger ejection seat was definitely my favourite.Weapons aside, cars like that have now become a reality. Take Haval’s Vision 2025, for example. It unlocks via facial recognition and has a summoning function, which means the car can meet you wherever you want.Think about your first car.

how to stop a cruiser

Johan Badenhorst is probably South Africa’s best-known overlander, with his amazing adventures televised on SABC2. He also knows a lot about patience – probably the best attribute if you plan on travelling the African continent.You’ve spent thousands on your new Toyota Land Cruiser, making it the perfect safari vehicle.

Kingsley Holgate is South Africa’s most famous adventurer, a renowned humanitarian and author. The 73-year-old founded the Kingsley Holgate Foundation, which aims to “save and improve lives through adventure”. He has handed out thousands of mosquito nets to help save people from malaria and more recently, provided people who are sight-impaired with glasses. Although he’s driven other brands over the years, he now won’t drive anything but a Land Rover. Mind you, the All New Discovery is rather comfy.Tailgate Café lunches are a Holgate expedition tradition.En route to sail the massive, dry salt lake of Chew Bahir in southern Ethiopia a couple of years ago, a motoring journalist asked if he could travel in the Land Rover with me. “I want to do a bit of a story on expedition…
