    Any suggestions on camping on Botswana side of Bokspits border crossing? Planning to cross border in late afternoon and then proceed following morning. So close to Bokspits (not close to Tsabong).

    Again enjoyed the reading. Were you pressed for time? Angola is so far and you turned away on the doorstep of all the great sights around Lubango.

  19. Re: Lesholoago pan Mabuasehube Water at campsite?

    The camps are opposite sides of the pan. We liked site 1 a lot but it might be a bit too small for 12. Site 2 is a very big site with nice views over the nearby waterhole and the pan.

    Lesho 2 had a tap with water that you could fill your shower up with when we were there in May. Beware that the animals tend to come and drink the water that get trapped at the shower area. Campers...
