some useful tips
Some useful tips
  • Be prepared for everything at anytime
  • Never trust an African for directions
  • Always trust your own judgement
  • Never show money before paying
  • Be street wise and smart – 24 hours a day
  • Have 360 degree vision at all time
  • Never drive at night - ever
tips additional
Tips - additional
  • Always drink bottled, purified or boiled water, most diseases and infection are water carried
  • A sense of humour and a cigarette is the best option to diffuse a potentially dangerous situation
  • Never, ever argue with a policeman or other official, smile and pay the bribe
  • Show respect and understanding at all times – even if you disagree profoundly
no 1 enemy weight
No.1 Enemy - WEIGHT
  • In desert African expeditions, WEIGHT is your single worst enemy
  • Keep it light, simple and accessible.
  • Digging a 1.5 ton Land Rover out of soft sand in the Sahara desert in the midday sun is back braking, hard and potentially dangerous work
no 2 enemy lack of water
No. 2 Enemy – Lack of WATER
  • Water is your life – only when you don’t have access to it do you understand the value and importance of it.
  • Plan your water requirements very carefully
  • As a rule, in the desert you will drink 1 litre per hour in normal conditions – if digging cars out, this will double or treble.
  • Plan between 10-20 litres per person per day – that’s a great deal of water and is heavy.
