WEST­ERN ROUTE: SPINAL ROAD

go! Botswana - - MOREMI & CHOBE -

nights’ stay here. Andy and Libby Wil­son hold the fort at the camp and they’ll tell you where to see game. Ask Andy about the time he saw 350 ele­phants swim­ming through the Ka­fue River… Spinal Road is in­side the park so you’ll see wild an­i­mals. It was re­built in 2012 and it’s in a bet­ter con­di­tion than it has been in the past. It’s a gravel road, but you don’t need a 4x4 in the dry sea­son. There are sev­eral low-water bridges, some of which be­come sub­merged dur­ing the rainy sea­son (De­cem­ber to March). The road might be closed for short pe­ri­ods of time if it’s flooded.

There are no places to camp be­tween Kasabushi and Hippo Bay south of the Itezhi-Tezhi Dam. It takes about three hours to drive from Kasabushi to Hippo Bay, but give your­self more time so you can stop to watch an­i­mals and birds along the way.
