+vespax Posted May 24, 2006 Share Posted May 24, 2006 We are trying to plan a great southern Africa trip in July. We want to explore Namibia, Botswana, SA and Lesotho while we are gone. I want to find caches in all these countries (and will!) while the non-geocacher just wants to see lots of cool spots. So I am asking for all of your local knowledge to help us make a great trip out of it. We virtually know nothing about Namibia, Botswawa and Lesotho, and little about the northern parts of SA. Our very early route would be: Leave Cape Town! Drive to Windhoek, Nam. Is it worth going to Walvis Bay? Then drive the trans-kalahari highway to Gaborne. Once there look around. Then decide about going back into SA or try a little Zim. (avoiding donating money to Bobby of course) Then see Jo'burg. Never been there, and you Guatangers say caching is nice! Try and see that region and drive into Lesotho. Then down to PE and back to CT. This is all very open. I hope to spend 3-4 weeks en route, but might be cut down to 2 if we are unlucky. Where can you suggest we go? Please share your secret spots worth visiting (ie:nice caches en route). The only real limitation we have is Malaria. We have to stay away from Vic Falls, Chobe and Cabrizi Strip since the non-geocacher is expecting. Too risky from what the docs say. Could we visit Fish_Eagle in Nelspruit? Thanks for all the suggestions in advance. Quote Link to comment
