Rule No.1. Do not try and do the Bots Zim Border with a hangover.
Rule No.2. Take 2000g patience, 350mg valium.
Rule No.3. Dedicate a whole day if you want to cross this border.
Rule No.4. Get there early enough to not have to stand in too much of a queue.
Well the truth be told one way or another we broke all those rules, and so suffered more than was necessary I guess. Just to clarify, Boswana was a pleasure, it was the Zimbabwe side where the wheels had long since fallen off and we were dealing with the axel men at the counter. A study in high-inefficiency, attitude, power and burocracy (sp?). It is surprising that tourists still want to go in, however the pull of the waterfalls and the wild finally won out and after a 4 hour grind, we finally popped out the other end ready to enjoy Zim big time. I guess if you don't weaken, it makes the Adventure that much more sweet!

|We all left Botswana with very fond memories|

|It was like a wild scrum in there - for 4 hours|
|Well some of us had managed to get the passport stamped after 3 or 4 hours... others not|

|Finally - we made it through!! Yes. It's all part of the adventure!|
|Made it! No-one said it would be pretty. Not the country - Customs|
