Mahango, Namibia

Personal highlights

  1. Botswanainfo-icon: as usual, very quick and simple exit to leave the country
  2. Namibiainfo-icon: helpful, friendly, fast, but a bit complicated with paperwork
  3. Crossing: fastest ever overland border crossing in Africainfo-icon (under 30 minutes)
  4. Road Taxes: paid with a terrible currency exchange rate (1:1 Botswana)
  5. Car Documents: having to fill out a TIP form in addition to the Carnet
