When we did this, we went from ghantsi to hukuntzi, then south on the "kaplyn". We just camped next to the road that night. Not supposed ti be legal, but two different DWNP vehicles didn't complain, they just stopped and asked if we needed help.

Russ - can you post a pic of the route in Bots on map, if at all possible - I'm trying to plan a Bots trip in June too.

Hi Alex, thanks for letting me know.

It seems you'll be there about 10days after us. I'll post dates though corresponding to each location so that its easy to see for everyone. We may still bump into one another elsewhere en route
