Fuel first….but where? Zim in ruins…. brain-dead leadership, no currency and no fuel. I cannot get to grips with the chaos that is Zimbabwe. We finally fill up and head off North to Hwange National Park for a night en route to Zambia. Simon having more problems with his ignition/carb… I’m haemorrhaging engine oil from my rear crank oil seal. And the generator is still on a go-slow strike.
This is not what these old cars were designed for….endless kilometres of tar road pounding. It hurts them and us just as much. Best speed is established as 68kph…bicycles are catching us.
240km further we roll into Hwange Main Camp…without doubt, the worst accommodation of any sort we’ve encountered all trip. If I thought Bulawayo was in tatters then Hwange Main Camp took things to a whole new level. Welcome to the real Zimbabwe Ruins…
