After a horrendous sandy road drive through huge potholes we arrived at Maun the nearest town to the Okavango Delta.Sadly the Landy was a little sick again, there was a loud clunking noise as you accelerated! After a lovely lunch at Hilary's (as recommended by Jim and Sheri) we found the Landy garage.The news was not good they didn't have the part (something about a new A frame for the rear diff???) and we needed to change all the other bushes (J.P has these though).The owner would order the part and call us … J.P was a little worried as there seemed to be an awful lot of other Landy's in various states of disrepair all with notes on the window saying awaiting parts!
After a night in Maun we went off to Audi camp, a place just by the river where J.P used to take his overland truck 10 years ago!It had changed a lot! It was bigger with static tents as well as camping now!We booked a trip into the delta a lovely lady named Helen (aren't they all) told us about Riley's garage who also did Landy parts and were nicer and cheaper apparently!We headed off there, where the guy just picked the part off the shelf and said he could fit the car in later!On the way out we met a couple, Sue and Ed who also had a sick Landy, theirs was leaking oil at the front.They had converted the back of theirs into a sort of camper van with indoor cooking, bed and toilet!They had been on the road since Feb from England coming down though Tunisia and across Egypt.We swapped stories and books (They had a great stash!) and left them with at the garage.J.P delivered the car back at the garage later and we spent the night at Audi in one of their tents before our early flight the next day into the delta!
