    Neville, please never under estimate your talent .
    The pictures you have presented are in my opinion of a high quality, and there is no reason why you could not compile a calendar as a start. Get a feel of the public, and progress from there.
    I believe there is a future in your hobby.

    I see that you went in your Hyundai IX35. I have a limited edition automatic petrol 2010 model. Did do some limited 4x4 with it but never put it to any real test yet.
    How did it perform there?
    I see that man power was required to get it through some soft sand. Did the 4 wheel lock not make this task easier?

    I have the regular petrol model, so no 4x4 capabilities at all!

    I was warned about the sections of soft sand and corrugated roads in the park, and I was planning to drop my tyre pressure to the recommended 1.6 bar before we entered the park, but I was not prepared for thick sand when we arrived at our campsite after a 14 hour drive, before we even entered the park (the campsite is 5km outside the park), so I was caught in an embarrassing situation!

    However, once I had reduced my tyre pressure, we had no problems driving around the park. I avoided the Botswana sections, which is true 4x4 country.
