I WANT TO GO TOO!

Go! Camp & Drive - - Destination | Southern Angola -

WHERE DO YOU CAMP? Apart from Flamingo Lodge and Tun­davala Wild Camp­ing we camped in the wild. Live the Jour­ney has spe­cial per­mis­sion from lo­cal sobas (chiefs) to use the wild camp­sites. Con­tact Flamingo Lodge at flamingo@aasa­faris.com. Book with Dion­i­sio Manso from Tun­davala Wild Camp­ing on +244 93 712 9952 (send a What­sapp mes­sage) or email to otchi­tanda.in­ves­ti­men­tos@gmail.com. MUST I BE ABLE TO SPEAK POR­TUGUESE? No, but it will make com­mu­ni­cat­ing a lot eas­ier if at least one per­son in the group has a ba­sic grasp of Por­tuguese. We en­coun­tered al­most no one who could speak English flu­ently and ev­ery­thing is writ­ten in Por­tuguese. DO I NEED A VISA? Yes. You have to per­son­ally ap­ply at the con­sulate in Pre­to­ria, Jo­han­nes­burg, Dur­ban or Cape Town. Your ap­pli­ca­tion must in­clude two pass­port pho­tos, an in­vi­ta­tion or ho­tel book­ing in An­gola, a yel­low fever vac­ci­na­tion card, and a bank state­ment. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.an­golanem­bassy.org. WHAT DID YOU DRIVE? Ev­ery ve­hi­cle in the group was a proper 4x4 with diff lock. Al­though most of the route is tar, there are en­tire sec­tions where a 4x4 is nec­es­sary. Your ve­hi­cle needs to be equipped with re­cov­ery gear and ev­ery­thing you need for bush camp­ing: tents, food and wa­ter for drink­ing and show­er­ing. HOW MUCH FUEL DO I NEED? Carry enough with you for a reach of 1000 km in 4x4 con­di­tions. ARE THERE LOTS OF FUEL STA­TIONS? Yes, but only in towns and cities, which are far apart on this route. Petrol in Por­tuguese is gasolina and diesel is gasoléo. Make sure you ask for the right one when you fill up. WHERE CAN I BOOK? Con­tact Live the Jour­ney at www.livethe­jour­ney.co.za, info@livethe­jour­ney.co.za, 021 863 6400 (Cape Town). The next tour is from 3–13 March 2018.
