The Mahango-Mohembe border crossing (daily 6am–6pm) lies just south of the Mahango Core Area entrance, 35km down the D3403, which turns off the B8 just west of the bridge at Divundu. In addition to the usual form-filling formalities, you’ll need to pay Pula 100 (or the Namibian dollar/Rand equivalent) if you’re “importing” a vehicle into Botswana. Entering Namibia with a foreign vehicle, you’ll need to pay N$220. The tarred road into Botswana follows the Okavango River into the Okavango Panhandle, to the large village of Shakawe, 13km southeast, where vehicles can refuel, and there is onward public transport to Maun, the main access point to the Okavango Delta proper.
