Moremi Game Reserve

Some pictures from our stay in Moremi Game Reserve Botswana 23rd-25th March 2019

Camped at a wild camp near South Gate of Moremi Game Reserve. We head a lions roar in the morning. We camped here before we headed into the park towards 3rd Bridge.
After entering South Gate of Moremi Game Reserve, we drove only a few kilometres to find a group of Elephants at a water hole.
Crossing 1st Bridge on the way to Third Bridge. We got lost along with several other people on the way to first bridge.
Seeing Giraffes on the way to Third Bridge campsite.
Our first night at Third Bridge in Moremi Game Reserve. This was the first night at A$140 per night camping at Third Bridge campsite.
Camped for the second night at Third Bridge campsite. We had to shift campsite because the campsite we stayed in the night before was booked out. The second night campsite was much nicer.

Parked at the Shoprite Supermarket Benguela. The car park is nearly empty, yet outside the car park are lots and lots of people. Only the rich people shop at Shoprite, and the many security guards keep everyone else out.

Crossing into Nambia

We crossed out of South Africa and into Nambia. The border crossing took about an hour, with many offices visited to get the Carnet processed. After a puncture in a front tyre only 2km from our destination, we are now camped at “The White House” camping area about 20km north of Grunau, Namibia.
