Since 6 years Conny and Thommy (Mantoco) are on an exciting journey around the world with their ACTION MOBIL "Manni". They have written a little report about their adventures and want to share it with us. Here we are and present part 1 - From Morocco to the Ivory Coast.
The new video, produced by Otti Reitz, follows the ACTION MOBIL ATACAMA 6300 through the rough wilderness of the north-western part of Namibia: the isolated Damaraland. The expedition leads through the narrow Khowarib gorge, down the Ombonde river bed with its deep sand and "deep dust" passages and into the wonderfull "Little Serengeti".
…we have looked for new challenges: Dense bush, deep sand and extreme dust!
Test route: dry riverbeds: OMBONDE and KHOWARIB in the Northwest of Namibia. For safety reasons we recommend to drive these routes always in a convoy!
The video gives an overview of the second part of the ACTION MOBIL founders and CEOs test drive with the Atcama motor home in the wilderness of Namibia - from the coastal fog along the Skeleton Coast to the Purros Canyon, the green river oasis in the HOARUSIB.
A client was kind enough to lend us the ACTION MOBIL ATACAMA 6300 to carry out this test drive. It is a rare sign of trust for which the Management wishes to express a big thank you.
The objective of this test drive was to gather technical data and to find out how the vehicle behaves off-road under difficult conditions. Before setting off, technical devices for chassis optimization were installed at our plant.

More than 25 years ago, Steffi and I passed by this lonesome place in our old ACTION MOBIL Pinzgauer. We are here in the SESFONTAIN Area, somewhere between Sesfontain and Purros, in the northwest of Namibia. At that time, there were but a few vehicle tracks and the two solitary rocks amid the landscape impressed us. This is why we took a break here and later on, climbed the rock.
Unspoilt landscapes where you feel like being on the moon - not to be reached in a common motorhome!
ACTION MOBIL globetrotter motorhomes are built and equipped to master such landscapes. As nature in Namibia is highly sensitive and in many places totally untouched by civilization, we deem it our duty to protect those landscapes and to leave as few traces as possible when travelling through. You should not deviate from existing tracks in order not to leave fresh tyre traces in areas that have been untouched so far.
ACTION MOBIL in the Outback. The Australien Outback stands for endless, uninhabited vastness and solitude. Reliable technology is an essential prerequisite for taking the challenge of travelling in your own motorhome.
After enduring heat, dust and physical exertion, you will find any convenience imaginable in the ACTION MOBIL cabin and soon the strain of the day will be forgotten.
