      Cash on Safari

      Botswana Feb 14, 2015 at 4:08 PM

      We are going on a G Adventures tour in July and were wondering how it is best to pay for meals not included on the tour? Credit Card or cash? If cash which currency should we carry? We will be in South Africa, Botswana and Zambia. Thanks

    • National parks by bus - are day trips available?

      Botswana Feb 13, 2014 at 2:40 PM

      Hi, any help appreciated.

      I'm planning a trip across Botswana in April/May, I'm planning to cross into Botswana from Zambia and travel by bus across to Namibia. Along the way I'm hoping to stop at a few national park. The main parks along the route (Kasane - Nata - Maun - Ghanzi - Windhoek) seem to be Chobe at Kasane, Nxai Pan, the Okavango delta and of course the Central Kalahari.

      What I'm hoping people can help me with is which of these parks are accessible to people travelling by bus. Are there are tours or day trips available? I've researched each of them online, but while it's easy to find both accommodation and pricier multi-day safaris I can't find any info on shorter trips.

      Many thanks.

    • Looking for safari partners

      Botswana May 9, 2012 at 5:12 AM


      I would like to go on a safari to Botswana and Vic Falls in September. I have found one that is guided but one vehicle is full and need to find people to share the second vehicle with me to reduce the cost. This is the itinerary:

      date activity Sleep at accommodation type
      07-Sep arrive Maun Maun tented camp
      08-Sep Delta Chiefs' Island tented camp
      09-Sep Delta Chiefs' Island tented camp
      10-Sep boat back to Maun tented camp
      11-Sep game drive Moremi camping
      12-Sep game drive Savuti camping
      13-Sep game drive Chobe camping
      14-Sep game drive Kasane camping
      15-Sep into Zim Vic Falls lodge
      16-Sep visit Falls Vic Falls lodge
      17-Sep drive Nata/Gweta camping
      18-Sep game drive Nxai Pan camping
      19-Sep return vehicle Maun tented camp

      The costs are
      2 per vehicle 2350 euros
      3 pv 2000 euros
      4 pv 1825 euros

      It includes park fees in Botswana (but not Vic Falls), camping and lodge accommodation, fully equipped 4x4 vehicle and fuel, guide (who drives the lead vehicle, participants drive the second vehicle). boat trips to and from Chiefs' Island (about five to six hours), mokoro trip near Chiefs' island. Food and drinks kitty is not included, but the guide does the cooking apparently we just help wash up. Vic Falls park fees are currently 30 USD i think, not sure what Zimbabwe visa costs are.

      Contact me if you are interested and I can send you the PDF about the trip that the guide sent me.

Anyone know anywhere close by worth going, even if only for a nice breakfast and somewhere to get away from the airport for a couple of hours?
