Kang is a great place to stop in the middle of the Trans-Kalahari Highway. One reason is they have fuel! They also have a BOB (Bank of Botswana) ATM machine. Even with the air conditioning in your car you will be hot and need a cold drink. The BP and the larger Kang Ultra Stop have that too. Because your next fuel stop is over 100 miles just about either way, make sure you do actually stop here. Prices aren't great, but there you go.
In the middle of nowhere, we did our unfueling… (just off the highway to Namibia). This is a good way of breaking down the journey. We were also observing the trees with weaver bird nests and many interesting elements of the dry grasslands, such as the way plants adapt to the drought.
I found this fantastic sign in Kang at the Kang Ultra Stop. How many times has someone driven past you in a car with music suicidally loud? The worst part being that it always seems to be really bad music played by complete idiots who just look stupid. Why do they feel the need to PROVE how stupid they are? Well, not here mister! Turn it down and roll up the car windows!
Favorite thing: In the middle of nowhere stood Kang. This is where we refueled, just a few kilometers east off the trans-kalaharian that crosses the country. Looking back, we didn't even feel any safety issue, and were just so amused at being in such a remote place.
Favorite thing: They all look pretty much like this, as it gets drier moving west, towards Namibia. Any stop along the road will offer such beautiful and remote sights, and may even reveal animal life or signs of it.
