South Africa, Botswana, Namibia…in less than 3 hours!


Normally when I leave on a travel adventure,
I drive or fly from South Africa to the destination.
Not so on my Chobe experience!

True, I flew from Johannesburg to Kasane, Botswana,
but that was only the beginning!

A rather sparse Kasane  International Airport.
However, friendly staff made up for the drab appearance and facilities.
A 15 minute drive from the airport brought us to this border post.

Although having only arrived in Botswana less than 30 minutes ago,
we were about to depart!

They are very keen to make certain that service levels are maintained,
tourism forms a large part of the income.

This is right next to the border post,
but was closed.

My feet on Botswana soil…

The thriving metropolis of Kasane!
At least there did not seem to be any potholes!

The border post had its own veggie garden.

Several forms of transport are available for both locals and tourists.

This female Vervet monkey was intent on discovering what was “hidden” in the trash.

Another immigration office, this time on Namabian soil.

A breeze stirs their national flag.

Once again, friendly staff and no queues!

My feet on Namibian soil!

ONLY once ALL the paper work has been filled out
and the Namibian stamp been added to the passport,
was I able to board the tender boat and head to our overnight destination.

ICHINGO Chobe River Lodge…
Or final destination was…

ICHOBEZI Safari Boats…
Our home for the next four days…
In order to get home,
I had to repeat the whole process in reverse,
before leaving from Kasane.
