What Kasane ?

After having a good breakfast we headed early to the Kazungula border post which is where we leave Zambia and then get on a ferry that crosses the Zambezi River into Botswana. 

The paperwork was mostly straight forward immigration, then customs for the carnet (KT) , and buying the tickets for the ferry. 

We got to the Botswana side without having a visa since Botswana recently open an embassy in Kuwait and were not equipped to give out visas when we left. So they did the next best thing and issued us a letter requesting the border immigration to issue us the visa on site. 

We waited for four and a half hours for that visa. By the time we left it was almost 3 PM which was too late for us to drive to Nata so we decided to spend the night in Kasane and ride to Nata tomorrow.
