    Default Hunters Road

    Hi. Can anyone help with info? We will be driving down the hunter's road between Botswana and Zim from Pandamatenga to where it joins the A33 near Nata in July. 2013. We will be alone (one vehicle) on the road. Is the road safe enough and what sort of kph can I maintain (no rush). I have planned at least one night camp on the way.

    The road is safe, you do get some very sandy patches. 30km/h. you will see all the animals you will normaly see in Hwanke. Try and sleep 1 night in the road on the big sandy cross roads. There is waterholes just of the track that you can not see from the track.

    Road is okay,but just watch your "sleep out" not sure you are allowed,there are so many conflicting stories about this,IMHO I would not take this chance,the BDF patrole this area on a daily basis and they will give you a hard time.
