Default Around Africa in A shorty

Good evening,

As some of you know I started building a 07 NS shorty wagon for a weekend warrior, and as usual I have a blow out. anyways, why not actually use it as it was intended, like going around Africa.

In January I put the little beast in a container and headed to work in the DRC, end of march it finally arrived in Maputo.

Ill try to keep the writing to a minimum and let the pictures tell the story.

The ship leaving port while I enjoyed the process of getting it out. I shipped to maputo to avoid a carnet, basically you mention carnet in OZ and people try to charge bulk coin for any paper work.

And finally on the streets in Maputo!!

We quickly made a run for ponto for a night to get sorted:

We had a short deadline this time so we only headed north of Maputo about 60kms to a place called Lugar De Cel, stunning place. and had it to ourselves. the managers were great.

Well I totally didn’t see that coming after your build!! That’s insane! So many questions as to how you did this.

One I’ll ask though, you don’t need local registration, or is there something you had to do to meet local requirements? I love that you have the WA personalised plates “wrong turn” - you’ve certainly got that right!

Enjoy! I’m sure I’m not the only one to say I’ll be looking forward to your updates!

Cheers

Bennie

No local rego required. I can drive everywhere on my WA plates. its gets a lot of attention. a little to much sometimes.

its hilarious because the last cop that stopped me did 2 laps around the wagon before asking where my rego was.

The next update will be in june or july. I have to run back to OZ for a few days to finish a few item, then off to Armenia for break. then another 6 weeks in the Congo before the poor girl gets any use.

Small update I guess, we have changed our plans and instead of small jaunts and locking it up, we have commited to at least 4 months of straight travel starting july 4th. How Exciting! Just need to finish a bit of packing in oz, finish work and gone.



In the mean time though I have had the wagon sent to Mitsi Tech in Joburg for some routine maintenance as now we are doing a larger trip with more time away form the cities and after my stint in Moz I found that getting parts would be a little trickier than i figured. Just having a few basics done, wheel bearings as a precaution, sway bar links, and a few small touch ups.



The girl gets collected:





And into it:

Wow, overlanding doesn't get much better than that scenery and vehicle wise.

Your shorty looks to fall in love with my wife just said.
Besides functional it just looks good with that ARB Sahara and OL rear bumper.

Keep the good stuff coming!

Wow, Good luck. You chose the right guy to look after your Paj at Mitsi-Tech. Arnold Venter really knows his stuff.

Thanks mate, We really like the wagon.

As for the rear bumper, I built it myself actually.
