    Re: Zimbabwe border posts open for tourists?

    You'll never get a refund out of Zimparks, Stan. Simply a lack of funds. At best you may get a rollover, best of luck.

    Re: Medical Rescue Insurance when Overlanding

    Bruce,

    I don't bother. My broker tells me I'm covered for SADC (in my case Discovery) and what I hear from Stan and others is that in the case of a medevac they won't listen to my pleadings...

    Re: Malaria meds

    You do sprout some hogwash at times.

    Coartem is not used as a preventative, rather as a cure. You can't be advocating people get malaria by not using prophylaxis just so they can use Coartem?

    Re: Kgalagadi - Bots and Sa

    At this stage Bokspits and McCarthyís Rest are closed. Closest open border post is Pioneer from Gauteng (double check that).

    You would enter and return through there. Ramatlabama also an option.

    Re: Kgalagadi - Bots and Sa

    Impossible.

    But you can leave via Two Rivers and head towards Tsgabong via Bokspits. After that go back via whatever gate you entered Bots.

    No prescription required for malaria meds any more. If you were comfortable with Malanil stick with it, or use one of the generics like Mozzitec (sp?).
