November 1st – Day 133

Thursday 1 november

Last night we slept for the first night in the roof tent, with the snoring sound off the hippo’s on the background. It’s now our job to clean the roof tent.

Dirk assembles a new spare wheel for the model T.

Today is Dirk a film cameraman. Dirk-jan drives the model T with Dirk as co driver.
The ladies are in the Land Rover. The first part starts good. Dirk is sitting on the roof of the Land Rover and films Dirk-jan driving the model T trough the loose sand.
We drive into the national park, beware of elephants!


Dirk is not used to be a co driver. His feet are getting very hot, because of the exhaust pipe underneath this floor part.

After lunch we change car setting. Inge and Dirk-jan have a ‘romantic’ trip in the Model T.


We passed the Okavango River.

We arrived at 16.30 on campsite Poppa Falls at Divindu. From here it’s 20 km to the Botswana border. We drove 219 km today.

We put our tents beside a little fall. We are warned by the camping owner, to be aware of crocodiles and hippo’s! It’s our own risk
