Africamper. Exactly. Friendly guys and nice cars. The first tire puncture was by the way caused by a tiny little nail and the leak was so small that for about two weeks, we got along by pumping up every two days. Suddenly, on the morning when we wanted to drive to Lüderitz, it was completely deflated.

The spare tire unfortunately had a badly applied patch which caused it to deflate rapidly so after about 10km towards Lüderitz, we decided to turn around and drive back to Aus, where the loudly beeping TireMoni alarmed us that we just had gone below the 1.5 bar threshold and we made it with the last little bit of air to the petrol station.

This can happen anywhere anytime in Africa so whenever you see the first sign of pressure loss, get it repaired immediately. It didn't cost us that much (10 euros per tire).

Aber Africamper macht wirklich einen guten Eindruck... hat ja auch seinen Preis...
