So at Victoria Falls we did a booze cruise and I got drunk and everyone convinced me to stay on until Maun. So I did. One last country with the tour, Botswana!
We started out with a sketchy ferry ride… I didn’t ride because my day two plan was 172 km on one of the African bikes… I have no idea why I thought this was a good plan… But this was what I wanted to do! I did not manage it. After 65 km into even the slightest headwind we had, I was done. Justin took over for the 10 km into lunch and then I borrowed Brad’s bike (Thanks Brad!!) for the rest of the day.
It took all day to see an elephant on the Elephant Highway, but we did! At the end, and then again in camp! Very cool! We saw even more the next day riding in the truck to Nata.
One thing about the tour, they love staying outside of towns. We never stay in a town, it’s always 5-10 km away… making it impossible to buy anything quickly… :S
Anyways, after Nata I did a big run in the morning, letting the trucks catch me at 19 km where I jumped on… then went on to camp. The 5th day I didn’t ride… 1 out of 5 isn’t bad, right? lol.
At least the elephants were exciting!!
It was sad saying bye to everyone, but it was definitely my time to go… Off to Cape Town!
