One last border to cross - Mapenzi Overland
 

Hi all

Counting the days until we enter SA.  We've scrapped plans to visit Zim having heard brilliant reports of the parks in Botswana and decided to spend longer here. 

We're now in Maun; since we last blogged we've had a couple of less than comfortable hippo encounters, rafted on the Zambezi and negotiated possibly the most challenging 4x4 tracks to date. 

Looking forward to catching up with you all.  We'll put up more photos when we organise them.

All the best

M&S

Hi Mike and Sarah,

Wow, what a time you have been having. You are so close to home now you must be itching to get here, yet not wanting this experience to end.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Drop an email when you are back in SA and leave a number where we can phone you.

Love Yo and Barry

Hi Se and Mike

Hope you have a wonderful 3 year wedding anniversary tomorrow! Can't believe you have almost made it to SA. Hope you enjoy the last little bit of your journey (don't wish it away)and enjoy being with family in SA!

Lots of love
Bron and Mike

Howzit howzit!

My thirst for your journal entries has been quenched once again and I spent a pleasurable hour or so drifting through your adventures with green gills.

Jo and I had a look at the map the other day and it is quite incredible how far you actually have driven - almost 20 000 miles! Mapenzi has done you proud, I hope you have given her a big smacker on her iron lips to say, "Thanks for the ride, Baby!"

Looking forward to seeing you beardless guys in about 10 days - tanned and chilled, just the way to enjoy a March.

Adios
Dave

Hey Mac - when you gonna be in CT?? Can't wait to see you both... Mike - are you looking forward to shaving off the beard?
Your Zanzibar pics brought back so many wonderful memories.. especially the spice tour with all the little trinkets they make! So artistic..

Hey Mapenzi,

I realy miss your smile in the backmirror... :-)

I hope you had fun to enter your home (new-)country. I really want to send you this hug... (:-))from Tiwi Beach ... Yep, I'm a little behind... but healthy!
