Mabusewetua, Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana

A stunning desert 4X4 sand loop route from Mata Mata South Africa to Mabusewetua salt pans that allows you never to have to drive on the same path. What a place to visit.

The dunes are marked with lion and hyena tracks and there are no fences. Camping is out of this world and watching the animals cross the pans at dusk with a glass of gyn and tonic in your hand is simply smashing.

Queestown, Eastern Cape

You may have thought there not really view points in Queenstown in the Eastern Cape province on the way to East London and the other beach sites in the area, but you will be surprised because on the outskirts of Balmoral is a 30min climb to a point that gives you good references across Queenstown. So If you need a break, take a drive to Toptown.
