    Default Drinking water point between Xakanaxa and Linyanti

    Evening We are going to Bots in August: Khama Xakanaxa Linyanti Maun Kubu then home We have drinking water capacity of 90l in the vehicle But this trip we have 5 people to sort out. So we were wondering whether there was anywhere between Xakanaxa and Linyanti where we could get drinking water. I doubt there is but my husband disagrees if there is not then we will have boil and purify Thanks

    Buy the 5Liter canisters at any supermarkets in Maun, as many as you think you need.
    Best option as you won't find tap water which could meet drinking water standards.
    Locals normally drink from the rivers.

    E34 - 535i for a bit of nostalgia
    E39 - 540i for the open roads

    At north gate one can fill up with fresh water ,just ask the rangers ,they will let you use their water ,it is bore hole and is good to drink ,then in Khwai village just down from north gate you can fill up at the resovoir just on the left ,before the 1st Spaza shop ,also no problem with that ,also good clean water .at north gate make sure you got a hose ,think it is 19mm . Dont need one for Khwai village .
