Another 200 mile plus drive to Gaborone. Got going early, so we landed in the capital  just after lunch. Here for a day or two before crossing into South Africa.

Feezing cold this morning. We crossed the Tropic of Capricorn on the road so we have left the tropics and entered the southern hemisphere for proper now. Morning temperatures are down to 7c, until it warms up by 9am and it get’s up to 26-27c. We had the remains of  last nights fire to get us warmed up. No hot water in the showers, just when we really needed one! If it gets really cold in South Africa, we might have to bolt it to Namibia which we have saved so we can visit on our way north.

Bun found a good place to stay at Mokolodi Backpackers belonging to a South African. Impossible to locate when we first tried but we found it on a google map after we stopped to use the internet quickly. Might be the only option in Gaborone.

We caught up with some of the blogs of people we have met along the way. We also on a mission to find out about Visas etc. for travelling up the west coast of Africa. Some Visas are expensive and take a long time to issue. We had several ideas before we started for when we got down here. Shipping the Landcruiser back to the UK is another option, but it is almost equal to the cost of driving back.
