We are at the Central Kalahari Nature Reserve in Botswana and this morning we woke up at 5.30 am at our Deception Valley campsite; we slept a lot, last night we went to sleep at 9.15 pm; something that in Milan doesn't even happen when we're sick.

We have breakfast in the car, even if it's less cold outside than the previous days we don't want to go out, since it's not yet clear.

We are at the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana, we spent our second night in the reserve at the Sunday Campsite, number 4 to be precise, where we have already been 2 years ago and where we wanted to return.

Tonight we shared our campsite with 2 boys, a French guy and a German girl; although we had booked exclusively we did not feel like telling it and we hosted them.

We are in Botswana at the Central Kalahari Game Reserve and this morning we woke up at our campsite at the Passarge Valley, the CKPAS02; our Dr. Livingstone gave us a nasty surprise and made us worry a lot:when we were ready to go, we started it but we couldn't fit the gears.

The only solution at that time was to push it to the main road and hope that some other cars would pass by and help us; fortunately, after pushing it for a few meters, we tried again and the problem was solved by itself.

We are at the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana, we spent our first night at the CKPAS02 campsite at the Passarge Valley.

Last night, before going to sleep, we positioned the trap camera, so far we have only positioned it at the Moremi Game Reserve and at the Chobe National Park, we are curious to see if even here at the Central Kalahari we can capture something during the night.

We are in Botswana and this morning we left the Planet Baobab near Gweta and we traveled to Rakops from where we took the dirt road that led us to the Maswere entrance of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve.

We checked in at the CKGR gate around 11.30 am, the ranger gave us some info but as we told her that we were already here two years ago, she overlooked a lot of information that we luckily know but that would be always useful to repeat to anyone who enters a natural area like this.

We are in Botswana and precisely near Gweta, tonight we slept at our favorite campsite and lodge: the Planet Baobab; we have already been here two years ago when we made the expedition of the deserts of Southern Africa.

This morning we woke up at 6.00 am, got ready and had breakfast under the thatch roof of the campsite, the sun has already risen but the air is still cold, but we couldn't give up an outdoor breakfast here.

We are at Kasane in Botswana, our friends have just left to go home while we will continue our journey from here and in the coming days we will go to the Central Kalahari and then return to South Africa.

Since it is time for lunch we go back to the Hunter's Pub, where we had lunch yesterday, we get a table on the outdoor terrace, we sit and enjoy the view of the Chobe River.

We have lunch with our guide and we chat a little.

We are in Botswana near the Barangwe Pan that is in the area between the Chobe Riverfront, the Linyanti and the Savuti, all areas that are part of the Chobe National Park.

This morning we woke up at our camp at the Tholobo's Bush Lodge, unlike the other days we woke up a little later, since last night we drank into the small hours, we had already decided not to go on safari this morning, but to travel the main road back to Kasane.
