Day4 - Leg10 - Bots+Zim - Off to Bulawayo

This is the daily blog from, in particular a short series on the Botswana and Zimbabwe - Giraffe Motorbike tour we attended during July 2011. Check out the original plans and route for the trip here.
We had a mad dash to Bulawayo since we had left quite late and had to make it before sundown. As a group we only ever stopped about three times in the 450km, which was pushing it a bit. Below are pretty much some of the only pictures we managed to get when we stopped twice at one garage (where we saw old trains) and some other quick stops I made so as not to miss some of true Africa.

More South and Southern African motor cycle tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.

What a cute little shop in the middle of nowhere
Typical scenery with very llittle traffic for miles
An old loco preserved from earlier times
Another view of the old loco
Our first stop after a long haul
Pretty worn out garage - but the petrol was ok
More of the train
A drier place along the road - remember it's winter here now no rain
More typical local shops typical of Africa
Our 2nd petrol stop where some of us we even braved a beef pie from the local shop! Very brave.
By now we were all hungry and thirsty
Right ready to crack on again
