For President
Really cool video and blog Mick. I have a soft spot for Botswana as our cook stole my passport and money at Vic Falls in Zambia so I missed out on Zim & Botswana. Extra cool video 'cos I probably wouldn't have scored some cornflakes if things had turned out anyway!

Many Thanks
Hi Dave - thank you for your comments, it was a great country but pretty tough to travel on a budget but well worth it for the Salt flats, the Delta and Chobe Park. Where are you thinking of travelling to next??? Would be great to meet for a beer one day

Cornflakes
