If you want to get a taste for the natural beauty that's on the other side of that border, you're going to need a valid passport and enough cash to show you can stay in the country for however long you intent on staying for.

To make sure your African safari adventure doesn't come to a halt, make sure you're prepared with the right currency and method of payment. The Martin's Drift border post accepts both cash and credit card in both South African Rand (ZAR) and Botswana Pula (BWP).
Martin's Drift isn't a traveller's point of interest on its own really, but rather a gateway between South Africa and Botswana.
The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!

I loved every millisecond of the entire trip... Guess what I did in Swakopmund? I skydived out of a plane - woohoo was that AWESOME :-)
