August 23, 2016 - Francistown, Botswana
      August 23   So a sad farewell to Jodi and Alistair this morning as they leave us to meet up with their son and then rush home to return to work.  We’ll miss their company.  They have been wonderful travelling companions, so full of life and a really positive attitude to the vicissitudes of this type of travel.   We decided to have a quiet day today, but began with laundry.  We all had a washing line of reasonably clean clothes hanging up by 11 – not quite the standard we...

The Tuli Block
August 22, 2016 - Francistown, Botswana
      August 22   Today was supposed to be a relatively short day getting to our camp site in the Tuli Block – the North Eastern corner of Botswana.  But we didn’t take into account that Francistown is in total chaos at the moment as they are upgrading the A1 and building a flyover right in the middle of town.   So we set off, stopping for shopping, and then got totally lost – eventually, I think, the GPS had given up on us and just wanted to jump out of the car!!  Our final...

Francistown, Botswana
July 13, 2008 - Francistown, Botswana
Arrived at Francistown on the Monday 7th after taking the 5 hour bus journey from Maun where we passed through the foot and mouth dip about 20 k's into the ride. Had to evacuate the bus at this point and get our bags checked by the local police and put all our footwear though a dip as the Okavango has a foot and mouth issue which they are trying to keep under control. Unfortunately when it's not just the livestock but the elephants and big cats that have it, it's not to easy an issue to...
