    Default Trip Botswana Sept 8th- Oct 8th 2017 -some advise needed

    Hi,

    My wife and I will be traveling trough Botswana this fall. We will tour the Kgalagadi TP, Khutse onto CK GP, Pans, Nxai, Moremi and Chobe.

    1. We like to cross the SA/Botswana border at Bray. Does anyone know if I can get gas at Werda before going into the cutline at Kokotsha?
    2. The cutline Kokotsha Mabua seems to start with a gate... Can you go through here? Or do you have to take a other path around before rejoining the cutline? We will drive the on the 9th in the AM.
    3. Before going into Khutse and onto CK GP (via Bape/Xade) what would be our last fuel place? Is this Kang or does Motwamosu, Takatokwane or Salajwe provide gas?
    4. Any additional advise on route Khutse - Bape/Xade?
    5. Anyone know if Rakops has gas? This is where I come out of CK GP.... I'll be in need of gas! any other place for gas?
    6. Anyone know if Gweta has gas?
    7. Is Maun the last gas before Kasane (going through Moremi and Chobe) or are there other options?


    Any other advise?
    Any thoughts on fuel consumption? (I have a 180l gas tank)

    Thanks, Johan and Brit

    Geez....just how much cooking do you intend doing??

    Yes, yes, I know what you are referring to as gas is either petrol/diesel therefore...

    Rakops supply is unreliable, they may have today which doesnt mean they will have tomorrow.

    From Maun to Kasane through the park, yes Maun is your last stop for fuel before Kasane.

    No fuel at Gweta.

    Re point 3. Nearest fuel will be at Letlhakeng or Kang.
