Overlanding Trips

25 December (Day 4)

X-Mass morning we had a nice breakfast after which we moved camp to the working ablution block and went for a game drive for the rest of the day, the weather was cloudy but luckily no rain. We then had a nice dinner and a couple of cold ones next to the camp fire, enjoying the peacefulness and the amassing view of the sky.

26 December (Day 5)

We broke down camp early and hit the road at 7:00 to be abele to get to Lenyanti in Chobe, (Fat change with all the rain) when we realized we will never make it we decided to go play a little. We got off the main track, taking the other little tracks, we had great fun as we bumped into some of our friends on honeymoon, while they were fixing a bend steering arm on his Cruiser he picked up after he got stuck and drove over a log which bend it. We knew they were in Moremi but what was the change we would bump into them. We decided to travel together for the day as they were also spending the night at North Gate, now we really had fun on the smaller tracks.
