My first overland tour in africa! I did this trip together with two good friends living at this time in Cape Town and running a very nice guesthouse!

We started in Joburg, went through Botswana to the south of Zambia, and visited the world famous Victoria Falls. After my wettest experience ever, we came back to Botswana for the next highlights, the Chobe River and the Okavango Delta.

When I look back from now (2011), this trip was maybe the reason, why I came back to africa several times.
And after all I have seen so far, Botswana is still one of my favorite!

    1 The Start 04/27/2007 South Africa —

    Johannesburg, Johannesburg, South Africa

    Description

    After a couple of days in Cape Town, where I stayed at the guesthouse of Remo and Esther, we flew to Joburg, where our tour started at the next day.

    Early in the morning, and after a cold shower, we got picked up by Harry, our tour guide!
    We were surprised, when we noticed, that Remo, Esther and me, and a french guy where the only one on this trip.
    But, more space for everyone!

    Description

    The first longer stop was at the border to Botswana.
    As everywhere in africa, we had to fill out a couple of forms first, before we could enter Botswana. That took us approximately an hour.
    But the really hard job had our tour guide. Because there were so many other people with cars and trailers, he, and of course we too, had to wait about three more hours, until we could continue.

    Because we lost a couple of hours at the border, we had supper in Francistown, at a chinese restaurant.
    I'm not kidding, but this was my first chinese restaurant in my entire life, and this in africa!! How freaky is that?!

    And the delay had another disadvantage. We had to set up our tent in the dark.

    Description

    I have read, that this is the only place in the world, where four countries meet at one point.

    I still don't know if this is the truth. But I can tell you the four countries.
    Having Botswana in the south, Zimbabwe in the east, Zambia in the north and the Caprivi Strip in the west, which belongs to Namibia.
