Days 3, 4 – Call of the Wild Motorcycle Tour

What a privilege to wake up in the bush with the sounds of birds and also baboons making a racket outside your room. We were ready by 05h30 for the morning game drive and after coffee and rusks we set out.

We were lucky enough to see a breeding herd of elephant and also saw one female charging the vehicle. Luckily our guides are very experienced and know the herd well. Some experiences just can’t be bought.

The ride today took us into Botswana and an easy border crossing except for the 37 deg C, which drained the energy levels.
