We got on the road early as we knew it was a big travelling day. Danny was expecting a few stoppages as the police are often out and about doing vehicle checks during the Christmas time. We did only get stopped once. The road was good once again and we seemed to move along at a good pace. There was a mixture of rich mining towns and shanty towns, and everything between, on the way up. We stopped at Zeerust to grab something for lunch.

These safaris have been a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
