The date was 14th February 1975, the starting point was the town of Kragujevac in (the former) Yugoslavia in Eastern Europe, the end point was Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and the vehicles in question were communist-era, 5-door passenger cars made by the (now defunct) Yugoslav auto-giant Zastava.
Since this past week was World Rhino Day, on 22nd of September, we thought it fitting to post a short article about our experience rhino tracking through the Mokolodi Nature Reserve in search of those elusive white rhino.
The Mokolodi Nature Reserve, located a metaphorical stone’s throw away from Gaborone not only has game drives, a quaint restaurant and picnic spots in the bush, it also has a couple of accommodation options including chalets and camping. We spent a couple of nights at a camp site and it truly is a great, "beginner" (if I can call it that) camping experience near the city.
