Magrietjie Ride: Days 3 and 4

Day 3 took us in a north-westerly direction from Nata Lodge to Kasane on the banks of the beautiful Chobe River.

The distance was a mere 340 km with fuel only at Pandamatenga. We skipped re-fuelling at Pandamatenga and cruised into Kasane with each KLR still having more than 7 litres in the tank. The big fuel tank stays one of the strong points of the bike.
