Caribbean Blog – Botswana

This summer there was so much going on for the Ocean Trader Caribbean Blog crew when we headed to Africa. We have been occupied with sailing adventures, family events and just traveling in general. As a result you may have noticed fewer postings and photos. One adventure trek that was worth our efforts was a road trip we took in Southern Africa. This was no ordinary road trip. This trek took us through South Africa, Botswana and Zimbabwe. Nkosi needed an extra aircraft just for his photo gear. We produced over 1000 photo files and loads of video. Please check out one of these videos here.

Starting in Johannesburg, South Africa, we took our time exploring new ground and making new friends. Jo’burg is a monster of a city and it did not disappoint. Nkosi photographed street life, unique communities in various townships, and just about anything that crossed our path. Motoring out of ZA we crossed the border into Botswana at the small town of Laboste. We had a new vehicle, good GPS mapping and more equipment than we actually used. After entering Botswana our road trip produced one surprise after the other. The Trans-Kalahari Highway was a neat experience. The landscape changed as we headed north. Days were warm and nights were very cool. Please take a few minutes to view our first YouTube video here.


  1. I did Bots two years back and loved it. I remember we built a fire every night at the camp. What an experience. Your video is terrific!

  2. I like the video. Where is part 2? Johannesburg does not look like Africa, but I guess that’s what the video is all about. Good moves!
