many years ago I went to Maun where i saw people on an open bus doing pub crawling, is there anyone one who can give me more info on that, I thought it was a nice way to see the town and meet the locals
I am flying into Maun in March and will travel to Deception Valley in the Central Kalahari, the Okavango Delta and then up to Victoria Falls. How does one go about ground transport? I am having a hard time finding any reasonable vehicle agencies or transportation. Thanks much! Josh
Good day - please can you tell me where is a nice material shop? I want to buy vinylene (spelling) Thanks
Hi, 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.
I will be traveling Joburg to Kasane in August and have about 5 hours of layover in Gaborone airport. Firstly, I presume that I am allowed to go into town as my final destination is still in Botswana so I will ave all the necessary documentation. 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?
Myself and my husband are borrowing a friends car to drive from Johannesburg into Botswana. Firstly, does anyone know what additional papers we need if it is not our car? Secoundly, we only have a week and don't want to kill ourselves driving. Can anyone recommend where to go and stay. We are on a budget. Lastly, when coming back into south Africa, when they stamp your passport, how long do you get? Your answers will be greatly appreciated.
hey...i am planning to go to maun this december and i was just wondering about the activities such as boat cruising,game drives,the nightlife etc and how much they cost...
Hi, want to do this trip last week in March/1st week April, should we get good weather or is it a bit too early for the Okavanga flooding? We want to see as many animals as possible. Refs my previous post - decided not to go Etosha/Namibia - that will be another holiday. Thanks A :)
We have from 22 July 2010 till 28 July to cover the area fly out of Livingstone. We would like to see the Chobe NP and possibly other parks around the area. Have looked at the safaris and they are very expensive. We don't have transport. So we need to get from place to place and find budget transport and then some some cheap day trips. Anyone able to suggest how to do it? It is possible to get cheaper prices once we get to Livingstone, Kasane? I am needing to sort this out now as time is getting closer.
I am planning to travel from Kgalagadi Park to Botswana via Bokspits and Middelpits to Tshabong in a normal 2x4 sedan. The map I have seem to indicate that this is a surfaced road - but Google maps show this as a gravel road. What is the condition of this road??? Will it be advisable to do this road in my sedan???
Somebody knows how the best way from Botswana to visit Victoria Falls? Are there some transport like bus/taxi/train or is it better to buy a tour ticket in some local travel agency? Any help would be greatly appreciated…
Hiya, Finally decided to travel from livingstone in Zambia to Gaborone in botswana. Could anyone give me some information about buses which might run this route? I can't find much online at all! Just need to blitz from Livingstone to Gabs as quickly as possible really so any info on how to get down there would be much appreciated! Otherwise if bus really isn't an option how about driving - how is the road from Kasane to Nata? Can I do it in a 2WD? If I have a satnav what are the chances of getting lost? The road looks really easy from Google Maps actually. So bus is my preferred option but I will drive if I have to! Thanks, Caz
I want to do a all round camping trip in Botswana. Has anyone been to African Ranches River Camp in Botswana, yet?
Hi, want to do this trip first week of Jan but worried about the weather.....should we postpone? ps where should we stay in Ok Delta? Any region with more animals that others? Thanks A :)
I want to go rafting and also spend an hour watching the falls and organise it from kasane. I have heard rafting is better from the Zambian side. Can this be done in a one day trip? Wkr Edwin
I will be studying abroad in Botswana from the end of May to mid-June (22 days). I have heard that it can be warm during the day and can get very cold at night. I live in Georgia, so we are not used to very cold weather. I know to dress in layers, but I'm more wondering what type of shoes to bring to wear during the day and night? Any other packing tips would be helpful. Also we will be staying at the University of Botswana and working with Somareland Tikologo. If anyone has anything good to share about either or what it might be like staying there I would love to hear. One weekend we'll be staying at Buffalo Ridge Safari Lodge. It looks really nice! Is it recommended? Any other recommendations or things I should know? Thanks for any feedback!
what is the status of the water level in the Okavango delta. considering some time there early June 2010-what can I expect with water and animals? thanks
I am planing to visit Botswana and part of Zimbabwe in August 2010.I am turned off with astronomical prices for lodging.What they call budget is over 100 dollars a night and in areas closer to CHOBE or Vic.Falls nothing under150 per person.Is that correct ,or I am looking at wrong sites and reading wrong books? Interested in simple accomodation under50 per room in Francistown,Bulawayo, Victoria Falls and Delta. Please help or We go to Tanzania and Uganda. Thanks Milislav
I have the opportunity to study one or two semesters in Botswana as part of my degree back home. I would be interested in hearing about the experiences of anyone who has studied in Botswana as a foreign student (good, bad and ugly please). Also, what would be the approximate cost of living, not considering rent ( I will probably stay on-campus and already know the costs of that)? I would prefer to eat locally (no expensive restaurants) and catch public transport where possible, and would obviously get a local sim card for my phone. Thank you for your help.
Any one heard of Karibu Safaris in southern africa? All information would be appreciated! Thank you.
Hello there fellow travellers, Please tell me how far it is from Windhoek to Gaborone when driving? If anyone knows the actual distance from the Namibia/Botswana border to the Botswana/South Africa border, it would be GREAT!! I hope someone knows! :) Edla!
Are there any budget camping sites for South Africans in the Okavango Delta/Moremi/Chobe? The sites operated by the National Parks are full for June and July 2010 and we want to go on a self-drive tour but there seems to be nothing available unless one uses expensive safari tour operators.Help please!
Planning two week trip to Botswana and Cape Town - not sure when I'll get back to Africa so want to work in Tanzania/Kenya. Is that two much to try to do in two weeks? what if three weeks?
I was in the Okavango Delta about 10 years ago, and had hoped to return in November and visit Moremi. But all I can find is luxury accommodation which is over my budget. So was thinking about going to Hwange instead. Can anyone advise me how safe this would be? Ideally I'd like to hire a car in Vic Falls and drive. But maybe it's not possible right now. Or alternatively recommend affordable accommodation in the Delta? Or another great place to go on Safari - I'll be coming from Cape Town. Thanks.
I have read the best times to visit Chobe National Park is May to Sept or Oct, so what could I expect to see in mid to late January? Still any elephants around?
Hi all I am arriving in 10 days to botswana and Ideally i would like to get to vic falls on a bus from botswana airport! is this possible? if not any suggestions, would it may be easier getting to joburg first? any comments greatfully received.
we are a group of 8 families driving from SA to Kasane. Can anyone give me an update on the road conditions between Nata and Kasane? Also what are the roads like in the Chobe reserve? Have the recent floods damaged the roads significantly?
