Travels/Troubles With Koos

Travelling SA’s back-roads with Max and Sue Hoppe in their less-than-reliable car, Koos.

Max and Sue Hoppe love to travel in their somewhat unreliable 4x4, named Koos ( you'll find out why, in the intro to the book) seeing intriguing things and meeting fascinating people along the way.

This book offers a gentle armchair tour, which generally avoids the main roads. It is sure to appeal to those with a love of travel, exploration, wildlife, and particularly an appreciation of all that makes this part of the world unique and special.

It is part travel-journal, detailing routes, adventures, & escapades (always made unpredictable by Koos’ erratic behaviour) & part coffee-table photography. It is also part travel-guide, with informative maps & info, although it is intended more as a means of sharing their impressions of the places they pass through, on random, haphazard journeys, than as a definitive guide to the places covered.

The small size of 210 x 210 mm makes it very practical as a gift, cost effective for a high quality photo book, and easy to post or carry in a suitcase. It is sure to be well received by anyone who loves Southern Africa.

In Travels Troubles With Koos, you’ll meet the travellers, and we’ll explore some wonderful destinations together:

  • Meet lions and elephants in Addo Elephant National Park
  • Get to know some of the enchanting smaller residents of the park, and see the varied and lovely scenery
  • Travel via Zuurberg Pass to the Mountain Zebra National Park, and camp there over a rainy Easter weekend
  • Return via Somerset East and Port St Francis
  • Go on a crazy girls-only adventure to Lesotho, getting lost on top of Katberg Pass en route!
  • Spend a fun weekend with a bunch of photographers at Addo Palace Bush Lodge
  • Camp in Tankwa Karoo and Namaqualand during a spring cold snap.
  • Meander to Cape Town, discovering all sorts of fascinating spots and people along the way.

Also available in Afrikaans, as Padlangs Probleme Met Koos.
