kalahari desert, botswana

we travelled around in a truck, camping at towns of maun and nata, around the kalahari desert. we also took the opportunity to visit the magadikgadik salt pans, and witnessed a mirror lake and amazing sunset. before we could cross the border to zimbabwe, our 4WD broke down. a temporary replacement would be a mini lorry. and we dumped all our stuffs at the back, and then hopped in together with the load. hahaha, it was goddamn fun to have the wind blowing in our faces. hehe. our guide was stressed not only because of his car, but also the fact that we were not complaining. he said "you ladies, i see you smiling and laughing even though we have no vehicle. you're making me feel bad!" and we said "no worries, we are quite easygoing people. that's what makes travelling fun, you never know what can go wrong haha!". and he smiled and said "good to hear that!" anyhow, botswana was truly wild. animals just kept popping out everywhere from the bushes along roadsides. sights along the way...
