Botswana Routes for off road ride April 2012
« on: December 26, 2011, 11:18:18 am »
Greetings -

Just got back from 2 years out of SA and want to do a ride in April 2012 from bottom of Botswana to Maun and possibly onto Shakawe near Caprivi. Bike will be completely offroad so looking for routes, riverbeds, footpaths, back roads, shortcuts, donga etc. Basically fun ride with as much completely offroad as possible. Will have a support vehicle so will fun ride and trip will be around 10 days.

Any suggestions, ideas, routes, GPS coords, jpeg maps etc most welcome.

Regards

Tifua

Find a cutline and ride it. Keep doing that and you will end up in the direction that you wanted to be in. (Botswana is criss-crossed with cutlines to stop the movement of foot and mouth).

X River Racing does multi-day tag along plastic bike trips in the southern parts of Botswana, with backup and camping. Gert Versfeld 072 4609 734. Highly recommended.  :thumleft:
