Leaving Savuti – Foot & Mouth Disease Spraying

This short film shows us leaving Savuti. Note for Brooksiders: Botswana has problems with an illness that cattle get, called Foot and Mouth Disease. Botswana has big cattle ranches in the South (the Game Parks are all in the north). To stop the spread of the disease, every few hundred miles or so, one needs to either drive the car through water dipped in Soda-ash (a kind of disinfectant chemical), or have all the wheels sprayed, and one has to stomp up and down on a soda-soaked sponge, which is what Mila is doing in the film.
