Onwards to Namibia

November 1st – Day Thirty Eight Everyone was keen to be back at the truck today so we were up early and sitting around waiting for the boat to arrive for our gear at 7am. All the gear was quickly loaded once the boat had turned up and we were on our way with a […]

Mokoro trip

October 31st – Day Thirty Seven Another of the group had a birthday, Helen being 33 today. We had a morning game walk, much like the previous evenings except we saw more Elephant and nearly walked all the way back to the bus stop. We got to get quite close to a couple of little […]

October 26th – Day Thirty Two To facilitate our early arrival at the Chobe National Park in Botswana and more importantly an early berth on the ferry from Zambia we left very early this morning. There were more than a few people talking in overly loud voices or even singing at we took down our […]
