Back to Maun

Once again we found ourselves in Maun in order to prepare for our last park in Africa, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. On our way back from Moremi we had to pass through a vet fence, which unfortunately we didn’t realise was there. They had a field day and took our rump steak and boerworst, then decided they had to check for fruit fly. They took our lettuce, beans, snow peas, capsicum but were too stupid to see the tomatoes so we managed to keep them. If we had known we would have hidden some of the things. I still do not understand the logic behind the flow of food in and out of these fences as it seems to me that you can’t take stuff into Maun from the west, but you also can’t take it out of Maun to the south. So where exactly are they trying to protect? Maybe one day someone will be able to explain it all to me!

As we came into Audi camp we noticed the one and only white bell tent in Africa. It had to be the same tent that Tim and Anjia brought with them (a couple from England we met in Iringa and then again in Dar). Sure enough, a friend of Tim’s was here using the car and its gear. Talk about a small world!

After stocking up with chicken for the next 9 days as there were more vet fences to go through (there are only so many ways you can eat chicken, believe me!), we took a long, boring, tar road drive to Kang on our way to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (KTP). We overnighted at the Kalahari Rest Lodge which was perfectly fine for an overnight stop with large campsites, although it was sandy.

Next stop the  Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.
