We did however spot wildlife on route, elephant, ostrich and donkey. Cattle were also plentiful in the none game areas. Cattle is Botswana's main farming product as the arid dry soil make most areas not that suitable for much else.
We stopped for lunch and had a very big plate of what was shredded beef brisket, served up with a big dollop of sorghum and corn flour porridge.
After lunch it was onwards to Maun. There were a number of places on the way to Maun where you crossed in and out of huge fenced areas as you crossed between the game parks and farm land. We would sometimes have to get out of the truck and walk on top of a detol sponge walkway, the solution to stopping the spread of foot and mouth disease.
We stayed in a very nice campsite in the Sedia Hotel. A rather posh hotel, with a fantastic pool and bar area. It seemed rather too up market for a frugal backpacker such as myself!
