Great to see my images from our #BeyondTheDesertEdge #expedition featuring in a whole bunch of #magazine print advertisements for @dunloptyres #GrandTrek Tyres. Massive feat by top #adventurer @petervankets, who cranked his @giantbicyclesza #mountainbike all the way from #angola to #swakopmund. Plus, the @isuzu4x4 #KBs never skipped a beat on this mission to raise funds for our official charity, @wearewilderness #ChildrenInTheWilderness 🙌

Nearly 300x Pages of #MoerAndGone kiffness finally going to print! This off-the-grid #travel guide has been a long and hard slog, and loads of kudos must go to the team at @mapstudio_sa who put up with all my kak, as well as co-author / sister Lize-Marie Marais for all her hard work.

This updated and expanded book will get you way, way away from cell phone and Wi-Fi signal. In some cases, you may have to bath in a river pool or dig your own loo, but I promise you the headspace and tranquility will be worth it! This is all about getting away from the regular #getaway crowd ... DISCLAIMER: If you own a boom box or quad bike (or any noisy #outdoor toy), you are disqualified from buying this book until you repent your raas-gat ways 😏

Big up to all those brands who lent their support in getting me to all these Moer & Gone Places, and in the process helped me capture, map and record some of southern Africa's most amazing destinations. You all rock.

Exploring one of #namibia's prime #outdoor attractions: the #spitzkoppe inselbergs near #usakos, in the #erongo region. Getting to the summit would necessitate a full on #mountaineering mission, but a solid #scramble along the slot canyons and sandstone spines makes for an excellent day of #adventure. And what a great way to test our #HiTecSA technical gear on one of our rest days during the @Dunloptyres_SA #BeyondTheDesertEdge Expedition.

Huge thanks to all our sponsors who supported this #fundraising project in aid of #ChildrenInTheWilderness >>> #DunloptyresSA #IsuzuSA #SPAR_EC #WildernessSafaris #HiTecSA #ciovita #HoldfastSA #giantbikes #SPOT_Africa #DripDropSA #DarlingBrew #BeanThereCoffee

Sure, the #mountainbiking on our @dunloptyres #BeyondTheDesertEdge Expedition was mind-blowing, but this #adventure journey was as much about the #ride as it was about exploring the edge of the incredible #desert land.

There were many breathtaking moments off the bike, where you could wander the alluvial #kaokoland plains or rugged #damaraland outcrops, and reconnect with #planetearth and its creatures, great and small.

Thank you once again for making this all happen, #dunloptyressa / #IsuzuSA / #myspar / #wildernesssafaris / #hitecsa / #giantbikes / #Ciovita / #spotafrica / #dripdropsa / et al. Together you have made a massive contribution to #ChildrenInTheWilderness

If I can choose only one spot to return to along our @Dunloptyres_SA #BeyondTheDesertEdge Expedition, it would undoubtedly be the @WeAreWilderness #DamaralandAdventureCamp.

This superb #wilderness destination is set amidst a dramatic series of sandstone outcrops within the expansive #TorraConservancy, brimming with desert-adapted #elephant and other mammals, as well as leopard, lion and #blackrhino.

Exhilarating #adventure opportunities abound, from #hiking, #scrambling, #birding and #stargazing. The rustic and beautifully appointed #tentedcamp and rugged surrounds also proved the perfect spot for a real-world test of our #HiTecSA apparel; I eventually snuck off to bed after shooting #startrails with the #PentaxK1 well after midnight 👊🙌 #DunloptyresSA #IsuzuSA #WildernessSafaris #HiTecSA #GiantRSA #SPAR_EC #HoldfastSA #DripDropSA #SPOT_Africa #RacefoodSA #DarlingBrew #BeanThereCoffee #PentaxSA #photography

Rock-solid gravel road handling from the @Dunloptyres_SA #GrandTrek rubber and our @isuzusa workhorse bakkies as we bomb a desert track via the #KahnRiver region. After a gruelling 4000km - plus trip from #capetown to the #cuneneriver border with #angola, we could not fault this #offroad combo on the most gruelling terrain imaginable. If you want to go to #4x4war, this is your weapon 🙌

The @Dunloptyres_SA #BeyondTheDesertEdge Expedition served not not only as a gruelling test for the #GrandTrek tyres and #IsuzuSA #KBbakkies. @PetervanKets pedalled an incredible 1200km on his @GiantRSA #anthem, and in the process cranked through some of the most inhospitable terrain on Planet Earth.
The northeastern corner of #namibia is a wilderness world unlike any other, and brims with diverse ecosystems. Everything goes, from #damaraland Torra rock fields to alluvial plains and rugged shale peaks in #kaokoveld, the arid #savanna of Hartmann's Valley, and the remote Dorob NP coastal plains.

The varied terrain both tested and amazed us as we navigated south from #angola and the Cunene River. Over 12x days of off-track riding, the #giantbikes were pushed to their absolute limits, but never once did they flinch or fail.
The real work starts now: sorting through images, writing articles, editing documentaries, reconnecting with sponsors and intensifying fund-raising efforts for #ChildrenInTheWilderness, our official charity (more detail on this to follow soon) .
Once again, a huge thanks to our main sponsor #DunloptyresSA, #IsuzuSA for the vehicles, #WildernessSafaris for guiding and access through their concessions, #HiTecSA for their quality apparel, #Holdfast for their #mtb racks and kit, #SPOT_Africa for tracking, #GiantRSA for their never-say-die mountain bikes, #ciovita for the top class cycling shirts, #DripDropSA for tasty #ors rehydration, and #Racefood, #DarlingBrew and #BeanThereCoffee for fuelling us.
Peter Van Kets and I are already setting the wheels in motion for our next #BeyondExpeditions adventure mid-2018,so stay tuned. And if Peter Kirk and Graham Kirk can join us, that will just be #BeyondBedonnerd 🙌

The #IsuzuSA #KBbakkie - fitted with #GrandTrek tyres - showing what it is capable of during our incredible @Dunloptyres_SA #BeyondTheDesertEdge Expedition. This powder-dust section on #Day5 was typical of some of the river approaches in #kaokoveld, #namibia. The slow motion video was shot on my @sonyxperiaza #xzpremium mobile phone, using the #SuperSloMo function which captures #4k #video at a frame rate of 960fps. #sonyxperia #expedition #adventure #wilderness #tomtom #getgoing #WildernessSafaris #GiantRSA #mtb #HiTecSA #DunloptyresSA #DripDropSA #HoldfastSA

And then it was done... After an exhilarating journey of 19 days, we're finally saying goodbye to this remarkable desert we've been tripping through on our Dunlop Tyres SA #BeyondTheDesertEdge Expedition.
It is a wilderness world unlike any other, and the diverse ecosystems - from the #damaraland Torra rock fields to the alluvial plains and rugged shale peaks of #kaokoveld, the arid #savanna of Hartmann's Valley, and the remote Dorop NP coastal plains - both tested and amazed us as we navigated south from #angola and the Cunene River.
Over approximately 1200km, we tested the #GrandTrek tyres, Isuzu South Africa #KBs, @HiTec_SA apparel and Giant Bicycles to their absolute limits, and were fortunate to not once have any major issues. We were also fortunate enough to pass through some of the most remote and beautiful #WildernessSafaris concessions, including #SerraCafema, #Hoanib, #DesertRhino and the #Damaraland Camps - and this was an incredible privilege.
Tomorrow we fly back to our families and I cannot wait to to see Karyn Marais and my gorgeous kids. This is also when the real work starts: sorting through images, writing articles, editing documentaries, reconnecting with sponsors and, of course, intensifying our fundraising efforts around #ChildrenInTheWilderness, our official charity - more on this soon.

It's a final goodbye to real-time #wilderness as we decamp from the #SaveTheRhinoTrust camp site in the #doronawas conservancy. More than 30 elephants wandered through camp yesterday morning, and it is with a sense of sadness that we follow @petervankets as he cranks onto the final two stages of the @Dunloptyres_SA #BeyondTheDesertEdge Expedition.
Tomorrow is an off-day with some time planned in #spitzkoppe, where we meet the second batch of #DunloptyresSA clients. Hoping for clear night skies to capture another one of #namibia's enchanted landscapes. This epic 1300km ride from #angola will raise funds for and awareness of the incredible work done by our chosen charity, #ChildrenInTheWilderness, to help educate the kids who grow up in #africa's wildest places.
