|Long distance to travel|
There was. So I did.
Hence my journey through Botswana,. Zimbabwe (Victoria Falls only) and Namibia.
One of the first thing I noticed was how very large these countries were.
As a consequence of this the distances that needed to be covered were enormous; a lot of driving on all kinds of roads (see Africa (part 2) Roads).

Due to the lack of rainfall and the hot sunny weather a monochrome brown cloaked everything including many towns and villages probably as a result of the incessant dust.
It may have been exceptionally difficult to spot animals, even the big ones unless they were quite close but the scenery was stunning; even the scrubland dotted with the bare branches stabbing the sky, the sandy desert and stony vistas.
Here are a small selection of photos that I took, Which is your favourite? Do let me know.
Much of Namibia is desert;
sandy and stony
