Highlights: Dodging cattle on the highway
Today we travelled 600 kms to Maun on the outskirts of the Okavango Delta however unlike earlier long distance travels we completed this in around 8 hours. The further south we get the better the infrastructure (roads, toilets, shops) but the more arid the landscape. The days of the lush green scenery are now in the past and the temperature is increasing.
In Botswana they have special health and safety checks every so often. This is to stop the spread of any diseases that could impact their cattle export industry. As a result every 200 or so kms we file of the truck with all our shoes / scandals and get them treated with chemicals.
Tonight we were staying at the Delta Rain campsite. My room for the night was in a pre-erected tent which included a fan which was nice.
