About the Book
Ever since I learnt that people drive around Africa in 4x4s, sleeping in rooftop tents for months at a time, I dreamed of joining them. My obsession became reality in January 2020, when together with my boyfriend I bought a 20-year-old dark blue Land Rover Defender. She’s called Nyala. After a few test weekends to check out the car, we were ready to go.
Coronavirus struck. Borders closed, hard lockdown began. Our plans to spend six months overlanding through southern Africa were put on hold. Fast-forward six months, and we were ready to go again.
Chasing Ostriches chronicles this journey of exploration through South Africa. We roamed the backroads and national parks in our trusty (and not so trusty at times) Defender. We climbed misty mountains, camped in empty deserts, sunbathed on tropical beaches, and saw wildlife galore under the hot African sky.
I came back with dirty clothes, an even dirtier car, and memories to last a lifetime. I hope my book will help you do the same.
Thanks for all the world class information. We have booked and paid for our trip for December 2022. We are now counting the days to departure.
Thanks, I hope you have a great trip!
Thank you for sharing your memories. The photo’s of the Kgalagadi is truly outstanding. Nossob here we comes!
thanks, enjoy your trip!
