Plumtree (Zimbabwe > Botswana)

first immigration in Africa without a visa, but queuing behind a bus full of people

Location: 

Plumtree, Zimbabwe

Duration: 

Thursday, October 13, 2016

Personal highlights

  1. Zimbabwe: leaving the country in no time, without any hustle
  2. Botswana: queuing nearly an hour for immigration (just bad timing)
  3. Car Insurance: awkward misunderstanding with the customs officer
  4. Border Crossing: longest border crossing in Africa (1,5 hours)
  5. Money Exchange: outside in a caravan with a terrible rate
