After all the dust from the salt pans we visited the Goo Moremi gorge. Like always in Africa, you can only visit this gorge with a guide. But after a very hot 3.5 km walk from the campsite there was no guide to be seen at the gorge entrance. So we went in, tired of … More Wild, wilder, wildest
We arrived in Botswana by pontoon, crossing the Zambezi river. While on the Zambia side we were harassed by fixers and money changers, in Botswana there was no one. Except for the officials, who gave us a free (finally!) visa and carnet stamp in less than five minutes. We could even pay our road taxes … More Elephants, elephants and more elephants

We ended up flying from Arusha to Dar es Salaam, with a stop at … More Ladies and gentlemen, enjoy your flight
