alone in botswana

AFTER almost a month of solitude, we left the Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR) with almost no fuel, no water and only tinned food. On reaching the tar road the police waved us down: “Botswana is going into lockdown tomorrow at midnight,” they advised. Having picked up a 3G signal, the BBC World Service painted a bleak picture of the pandemic – things had changed dramatically during our period offline. The only sensible option was to backtrack to the small town of Ghanzi, and refuel both us and the Land Rover. After that options were limited with National Parks and all hotels, lodges and campgrounds already closed. Fortunately we had the caravan. Early the following morning Liz and I started to make some calls. Finally Drotsky’s Cabins, somewhere we’d previously visited…

covid screening

THERE I was, on a nice Sunday morning and I’d decided to do what many people do: clean my car. Admittedly not many Land Rover owners do this on a Sunday, as we’re normally out driving them, often off-road and getting them muddy. But on this Sunday, I’d no plans to go anywhere. The windscreen was the last bit to get cleaned and it was only then I noticed a crack in the windscreen. Not massive. You couldn’t even see it from the inside but it was there and it wasn’t going to get any smaller. Given it was the weekend, I was more than impressed when someone answered straight my call away. A big tick for AA Insurance. The company they use for screen repairs, turned out to be AutoWindscreens. After…

land rover returns to the dakar in 2021

LAND Rover has strong ties with Dakar Rally after a Range Rover won the inaugural event in 1979, before triumphing again in 1981, so it’s only fitting that its latest and toughest product should be providing on-event support for a team’s two drivers, medical crew and support staff across the gruelling 13-day, 12-stage, 4751 mile event. The two Defender 110s will support ambitious new Dakar Rally and Prodrive-backed team, Bahrain Raid Xtreme (BRX). Negotiating extreme conditions, traversing desert dunes, mud, camel grass and rocks they will carry vital supplies, crew and equipment for the team and drivers. BRX’s driver line-up is impressive to say the least and includes nine-time World Rally Champion, Sébastien Loeb, from France, and two-time Dakar Rally winner, Nani Roma, from Spain. The two Indus Silver models, powered by…

WELCOME to LRM Classics. This month we feature two more Series Is from the amazing collection of Ike Goss of Pangolin 4x4 in Oregon. They are both exceptionally original and interesting NADA (North American Dollar Area) vehicles that were built at Solihull specifically for export to the USA or Canada. Beautifully photographed as usual by Nick Dimbleby, it is fascinating to see early Land Rovers in such bright and attractive colours. In the UK at that time, such colours were all but unheard of, unless you were ordering a fire engine or an AA patrol vehicle! Our second feature this month relates the story of how Mario Gauci finally took the plunge a bought a 101 Forward Control sight unseen from the UK and had it delivered to Malta, where he…
