Crossed through border control and back into Namibia at the end of the Caprive Strip, first night at the Zambezi Lodge, great room overlooking the river.
The staff came into the room and sprayed the little termite mound - lol the next morning they had taught them a lesson and built one a 100 times bigger. If they left it long enough I think they would fill the whole room.

Left about 2 and back to a bed - so ...

Like Vic Falls we also had an adrenalin rush in Swakopmund and some beautiful scenic drives on the truck. It’s a toss up between Zimbabwe and Namibia which is the better country – in my opinion they are on an even keel and definitely a place we would come back to.
Next stop South ...
