    Kasane, Botswana

    June 20, 2017 in Botswana

    From Popa Falls we drove to Kasane in Botswana (easy border crossing) after another nearly full day of driving. There had been a minor fuel leak in one of the tanks that was getting worse (our mileage went from ~10km/liter to ~6.5) so we had to make a stop at a repair shop when we arrived in town. The shop that our rental operator had told us to go to appeared to be an empty warehouse. After a few calls back and forth, we drove around back to discover quite a busy place. They diagnosed that we had a crack in the fuel tank and were able to make a temporary fix (bonding it with some sort of compound) until we can get it welded in once we get to Lusaka, Zambia – a much larger town where we’ll be making other repairs/maintenance.
    Given repairs weren’t complete until dark, we opted to stay in a real bed in a local guesthouse. Very comfortable place located in a residential area of Kasane. Had a good sleep before our visit to Chobe for the next 10 days.

    Thebe River Safaris Lodge

    July 18, 2017 in Botswana

    We arrived at lunch time, we set up our tents and then had lunch. The others were picked up my a truck to go on a river safari while a few of us remained at camp for the day.

    It was a much needed rest day, I helped Duncan peel potatoes for dinner then had a shower. The showers were clean and the water was hot so I really can't complain!

  • Day12

    Dag 12 - Tot siens

    March 25 in Botswana

    Dit is tyd om te groet. Vandag ry meeste van ons toerlede terug in die rigting van die huis - Suid-Afrika - oor Francistown en Palapye. Enkeles ry Namibië om, met nog avontuur wat wag. Vir oulaas eet ons saam ontbyt, deel koffie om die kampvuur en probeer die minute uitrek. Stories en herinneringe word ingepak saam met kampgoed (alhoewel iemand se stukkende kampstoel agterbly), en die voertuie verlaat die kampterrein een vir een.

    Dag 11 - Chobe- nasionale park

    March 24 in Botswana

    Vandag: teeltroppe rooibok van honderd sterk, visarende, waterlikkewane, olifante wat uit die bosse verskyn soos skimme, olifante wat in die water speel soos kinders, olifante wat stil verbyseil soos skepe, 'n leeuwyfie alleen op pad, buffels, koedoes, poekoes, waterbokke, kameelperde, swartreier, witreier, ralreier, groenrugreier. Die wolke wat stapels maak op die horison. Die glimlagte van die mense op ons boot. Jack Katanga, ons drywer vanoggend en bootkaptein vanmiddag, wat ons na kuifkopvisvangertjies lei, geduldig wag terwyl ons als afneem. Dankie, Jack, Chobe en Botswana. Dankie ook aan die Mpafa/Bhejane-span: Douwe, Gilbert, Mpho en Dries. Tot volgende keer.Read more

  • Day8

    Dag 8 - Ngepi na Kasane

    March 26, 2017 in Botswana

    Dis 'n dag vol verrassings: ons sien 'n jagluiperd sommer langs die B8-teerpad 'n ent oos van Divundu, en wanneer ons laatmiddag deur die Chobe- nasionale park ry in rigting Kasane, lê vyfstuks leeu doodluiters vir ons en wag langs die teerpad. Tussenin stop ons vir middagete by die vriendelike mense van Caprivi Houseboat Safari Lodge naby Katima Mulilo, waar die Zambesirivier damvol lê - die rivier het in die afgelope week al amper 3 m gestyg! In Kasane is dit Sondag, en die bobbejane strek uit op die dak van Choppies. Ons slaap by Thebe River Safaris, en môre gaan ons Vic Falls toe. Netjies.Read more
