An epic day on the bike. I set off in the dark to make a push to the border. I make good progress in the morning but at noon a big thunderstorm hits me and forces me to a quick break in an otherwise nonstop ride all day. In the evening I follow the mighty Sambezi river with Giraffes, Zebras and Pumba next to the road.
Managed 335 km but arrived at the border when it was already closed. Staying in Zambia and will cross into Botswana at 6am tomorrow. Will be riding right through lions country all day…luckily I am very skinny after foodpoisoning, the cats wont be interested.
