Where there is a will, there is a way

Our journey to the southern part of Africa in 2012 was our first one in the region, but at the same time it was also the reason for us to keep avoiding a second one there.
We had visited the main points of interest in South Africa and Namibia, the Okavango Delta in Botswana and the Victoria Falls at the side of Zimbabwe.
Any time we were recalling all those endless procedures at the border posts we were freaking out. But, on the other hand, 5 years had already passed and the bad memories had started to faint. Probably it was time for a fresh restart…for a revision…

It wasn’t wise of me to start searching for information about Mozambique and Malawi or watching all those photos about island complexes and lakes.
I guess the cold winter of this year and the journey to Philippines in Christmas, which we had both enjoyed a lot, contributed to my boldness.

The determining factor for deciding the journey eventually were the very good air ticket prices to Johannesburg and the rental car, when I got the reassurance from the Rental Car Company that I could move without any restrictions to 5 countries: Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique.

All I had to do now was to divide the time properly for visiting all those places. I must admit that this is a permanent problem for me.

While searching for routes, I kept discovering new places and new national parks which I would like to go to.

But I kept discovering more and more difficulties too.

The procedures for issuing visas at the borders were too stressful. The requirements for cross border driving seemed endless and hectic.
The road network in Mozambique was hardly passable, after the raining period…
