Botswana and Namibia By Ross Scott-Riddell of Cousteau Tent As Quest draws to a close, the men of intake 2 departed on our last voyage, our last journey together, our last long ride in the big blue Overlander we have become so used to travelling in over the last several months The trip brought with it mixed emotions. As excited as we all were there was the ominous realisation that we were just days away from completing Quest and departing from each other’s company. Upon arrival at the Botswana border things quickly became interesting as Douglas was almost arrested for urinating in public!! Evidently the Botswana police aren’t as bush savvy as us Quest guys!! Luckily for him he was let off with a warning and our journey could continue as planned! A long drive followed to the small town of Maun where we stayed close to Sitatunga Lodge. The next three days that followed consisted of standard PT in the morning and long days work in the blistering heat. Our task to build a small traditional structure was tiresome and demanding but the thought of a Tafel Lager afterwards pushed us on. The time flew by and we managed to make very good progress. Our time there came to an end and we moved on to visit the San bushmen. The drive there was long, hot and dusty and probably one of the worst we have had, but the rewards of meeting the bushmen were surreal. The drive was definitely worth it and I feel extremely privileged to have met them. As some finished off the Botswana section of the trip with a flight over the glorious Okavango delta, the rest of us sat, eagerly anticipating their return so we could move on to one of the trips that was most looked forward to. The perfect finish to our Quest experience. Our ultimate week of the amalgamation of work and good nights. Our week at Victoria Falls.
