Wow, so insane to have your own vehicle over there with you! I still can’t fathom that! Looks like you’re clocking up the kms!

Do you see (m)any other Pajero/Shoguns over there?

Have the locals been good in general?

Keep the pics coming! So many good ones!!

Cheers

Bennie

Thanks mate, its been a wild ride. I'm working in DRC again so we tried to keep the wagon there but the import costs were way to much. so it snow back in SA, I will do a post on that next.

Do I see many pajeros: yes yes yes in SA and Namibia heaps, way less in congo and zambia though, I was at a set of lights in joburg, 3 gen 4 shorties at the lights!! 3!!! very popular car.

Have the locals been good: as usual, I would say about 99% good with the locals, a few heated moments here and there. more the issue is police and government workers who strictly see white people as a source of money and will treat you as such. once your used to there games it becomes fun if you have time. Coming back into South africa I had the manager telling me they dont do TIP's for foreign cars... okay how have I gotten 3 already? we stare at each other, I dont back down, he eventually says yupp, she will do it. which was funny cause she said she didn't know how??? its a game, play to win.

So I am working in DRC now, so I figured why not just temp import the wagon. anyway, a quote of 4000usd later the car is back in SA. a little rich for my blood. I made it to Joburg in 3 days with border crossings, it wasnt easy, but the ol wagon gets the job done and passes anything like its standing still.

Relaxing after packing the wagon:






No photos from the congo side as I was full go go go to make it through the border as early as possible as both congo and zambia take ages.


Into Zambia:




Saved this guy from getting run over:




The crossing from Zambia into Bots, the locals say the bridge will be done this year.




Waking up in Botswana to this:



Then hitting rain:


Rolled over 292000kms!!!



And finally back in Joburg, with a leaking fuel pressuresensor. wagon didnt quit running so that was a win. I jsut replaced the complete rail and sensor yesterday. 2 hours in out and done in the storage unit I leave it in while at work.
