Andy and I always said once our second son Shep turned four, we'd take the boys on a 4x4 journey in Namibia.  There are four years between our boys and our first born, Solo is now eight.  Solo had been to Africa three times by the time he was Shep's current age, and as much as we would have liked to give Shep the same early life experiences in Africa as his older brother, with two small kids, several country moves for our family to Asia, Europe and then back to northern Australia, plus a business that started just before Shep was born, that clearly wasn't going to happen quickly or easily.  So there had been much anticipation around Shep's first trip to Africa in June this year and when it finally happened, for both boys, it was just mind-blowing.  I don't think you can guess at what your child will get out of being in the wild until you put them out there.  Both Solo and Shep loved Namibia, but in different ways.
