Woke up in my hotel room snug and warm it felt weird not having to take down a tent, we packed the bus and were heading to the breakfast buffet. Bacon eggs and coffee went down very well. No breakfast dishes to be done and we were on our way. Today was a long hot drive to the Botswana border, we passed through without issues. We had to discard all of our uncooked meat as it is illegal to bring in raw meat to Botswana. Another stamp on my ...

Went out to dinner, very good, but prices aree highre than we are used to in namibia, but I guess thats what you expect for a Capital City.

... went out to place a camera trap where leopard tacks have been spotted!! Following that we went out on a hike to find cheetah brothers kill on the property to see what and where they ate! We didn't actually find it but the coordinator with us was teaching us how to track using prints and poop. It was super interesting and informative! Then in the evening I helped with data entry of the spottings on the camera traps :). Another great week and very much looking forward to the one ...
