A word­smith and a good Sa­mar­i­tan

Go! Camp & Drive - - Contents -


Hein might not have contributed a story to this month’s magazine, but this good Sa­mar­i­tan still de­serves a spe­cial men­tion. If it hadn’t been for his help when Evan lost two tyres in the Ka­roo, we might not have had a story about An­gola in this month’s magazine!

What is your ear­li­est travel mem­ory?

A trip from Bel­lville all the way to Etosha with my par­ents in 1972.

The best place you’ve ever vis­ited?

Mozam­bique. I love the warm wa­ter there.

What is your num­ber one travel tip?

Take enough spare wheels and wa­ter (Evan might also gain some­thing from this ad­vice!).

Do you plan your trips in de­tail or just go with the flow?

I travel as the wind takes me, but it’s bit­ten me hard once in that very same Mozam­bique. I didn’t book any camp­sites be­fore leav­ing and when we got there, ev­ery­thing was full. I had to pay for five-star ho­tels all the way!

Which des­ti­na­tion in South­ern Africa would you like to visit?

The south of An­gola. I was sta­tioned there in my army years and I can still re­call the nat­u­ral beauty of the area.

Do you have a favourite travel writer?

Dana Sny­man.
