Mari & Tommie

Thanks for organising and leading us through an unforgettable 14 day trip through Kaokoland. The daily schedule was perfectly organised so that we ended each day relaxed enjoying a drink and watching the sunset. Dealing with a big group makes it even more difficult to get everyone ready and on the road, through the difficult sections and then in evening, ready for one of your wonderful dinners, from Rib eye steak and chips to oxtail potjie. Every evening Tommie would say “kom skep manne daar is baie”, I had open my belt one notch at the end of the trip…

The Kaokoland is challenging, but having your expert guidance got us through without any incidents, not even one puncture on 10 vehicles.

We can only highly recommend Tommie and Mari @ Stoftrappers.

Thanks again
Marilyn and Detlev

The Stoftrappers Team – Tommie and Mari – are absolutely incredible hosts! We had an amazing holiday with them and can highly recommended them for people looking for an unique 4×4 touring experiences. Tommie is a highly skilled and experienced 4×4 tour guide and safely delivered all vehicles from start to finish. Both Tommie and Mari are full of information regarding the sites and the landscape. Mari was absolutely outstanding with catering and hosting. We were blown away with amazing food that one couldn’t reasonable expect in the very remote and isolated places we travelled. You will not find a better 4×4 touring team for experiences in Southern Africa and we can highly recommend them to anyone.

Hi Tommi & Mari,

Just a short note to thank you for the Kaokoland Tour we could do with you. We were a big group (20 People) and I was worried that we were too big for such a long tour into such a remote area like the Kaokoland and expected poor food and some “drama” with the challenging 4×4 Driving. I was also worried about the dynamics in the group and that this would spoil my long awaited “Bucket-List Adventure” for me. But how wrong I was:

Your menu blew me away, I was impressed with the variety of food you could serve us and how well you planned the menu, the success was a direct result of your pre-trip preparation of the dishes and the whole group was impressed with how effortlessly the food appeared every night before the sun had even set. I found the mix between Pasta, Stews and “Braai Vleis” just right and the French Fries you served was far superior to the Chips served at Steers.

In our group we had a few “Head-Strong” guys, Captains of Industry you might call some of them, yet Tommi asserted his authority in a very firm but gentle manner and all of us knew who was in-charge, and this was comforting in some strange way as we could relax, we felt safe in Tommi’s hands and never doubted that every eventuality that could happen to us would be “Handled” and that we could just relax and enjoy the trip and not have to worry. As was evident when an Alternator was replaced during the day’s Lunch Stop.

I am very thankful in the way we were directed down Van Zyl’s Pass (and up and down a few other passes.) I was expecting to lose a Running-board or at least a Bumper, but apart from a scratch at the bottom of my back-bumper I had no damage to the vehicle.

The Route Planning was also “Spot On” and I never felt we had to “chase” to reach our destination. I would also like to compliment you on the Communication, I always knew what the day ahead looked like and never felt “left in the Dark.” I also felt that the Radios in each vehicle helped to keep the group connected and enjoyed the humor as well as knowledge that was shared between the vehicles.

I am looking forward to joining you on another Adventure in future.
