(visited by Gys Vermeulen and Alida Vermeulen)

09-Dec-2006 -- We were on our way to Ghanzi in Botswana to deliver bovine semen to cattle breeders. I knew about this Confluence which sometimes is shown very close to or on the Trans Kgalagadi Highway. As we were traveling with my Land Rover I thought it would be a great idea to visit this Confluence - the first for me in Botswana since I started working here in January 2006.

We also met lots of cattle, ostriches, donkeys, and goats on this road, as well as the vultures that were reported earlier. We drove up to the Confluence, took the necessary photos, and drove out.
