This time last year, we hopped into a 4×4 for a road trip adventure to explore the Northern Cape, while flower spotting at the Namaqua National Park and its surrounds. The whole area is rugged terrain and you need a 4 x 4 to travel through the area. Our trusted city hatch back would not quite manage. So, we borrowed my father in law’s jeep for a week of exploration.We explored sand dunes in a 4×4, lived on the wild side when the diesel at a stop we made before a long stretch was sold out and froze our bums off in a stone hut. All part of what makes road trips epic.
I wrote about part of our experience for an in-flight magazine earlier this year but also wanted to share more of our adventure here.
