Apparently, some Botswani (Botswanian? Autobot?) people aren't entirely thrilled that Jezza, Captain Slow and the Hamster are headed to their African nation to trek out across the country's salt pan. While some citizens are upset about the environmental impact Clarkson & Co. will wreak upon the flats' fragile ecosystem, Guy Brina isn't particularly worried that the Beeb will screw things up. What concerns him is that Top Gear's massive popularity may encourage less-sensitive yahoos to head out on their own salt safaris once they witness the hilarity that'll no doubt ensue when the Three Amigos bicker their way across one of Africa's natural treasures.
