Thanks joshilewis, but I think you misunderstood my problem, water to drink is no issue, it's the water to get through thats worrying me...

Haha, ok :)
From reading a post on the river crossing thread, it seems the river's changed a lot since I did it, so I'm afraid my advice wouldn't be that useful :|

Appreciated though...

I think I need to buy like a "river crossing for dummies" book or something, as you might imagine, life in the Kalahari means I have'nt been able to gain much experience in water-slogging... :huh: :huh: :huh:

DuneRichard I know when I did the trail there where 3 different crossing areas for the different times, I don't know if it has changed as It was in 2002 that I did the trail. the 3 ways helped for the time you got to the river as to which route to take and which is the safer :hmz:

So basically, if you're short like me you'll be going throught the water with just your scalp above the water!? :P

LOL... If you happen to see a Witsand Kalahari Nature Reserve cap floating in the ocean, you'll know who drowned under it... :?
