6th December 2013

Entered Botswana with easy formalities, with only our tomatoes and firewood confiscated. All the meat, dairy products and a springbok skin were acceptable although we had to walk in a chemical filled tray and the troopy also had its own trough to drive through. Drove on through the Chobe National Park at the very north of Botswana with just the usual antelopes and giraffes until the very end where we saw a herd of elephants twenty strong and many hippos. We reached the border town of Kasane where we lunched and tried to get Zambian currency before entering Zambia. No deal. First premonition.
