October 2018 Issue

We’re in Namibia (or is that Nambia) twice this month, exploring our northern neighbour through the eyes of a reader and then again through the windshield of the 2018 Car of the Year – the Volvo XC60.

Then we head down memory lane for a look at an old Volkswagen Kombi. This story may have you searching YouTube to play those old Volksie TV adverts. Remember? The ones with David Kramer.

It wasn’t that long ago that we were in Australia and we returned Down Under to test the Ford Ranger Raptor. See what we have to say about that experience.

We also had a comparison of sorts, where we took the Dakar Hilux to meet its big brother: the actual Dakar Hilux.

Fuel for thought continues, as does our Great Adventure Series where we introduce the first couple of families who gave our challenge a go.

As usual, Voetspore’s Johan Badenhorst and Kingsley Holgate continue to fill us in with what they’re up to and we have our regular Photo Focus, long-term reports, Buying Used, Gear and Campfire sections to keep readers entertained.
