    • Best route to Swakopmund from Johannesburg

      Johannesburg Nov 28, 2016 at 6:03 AM

      Hi there,

      I am planning to drive through to Swakopmund from Johannesburg in December but am not sure whether its better to travel through Botswana (which seems to be the shorter route at 17h35mins) or through the bottom of Namibia at 20h10mins)...
      Can anyone advise on the better route and give some suggestions with regards to where one can overnight?

      Your feedback would be greatly appreciated as we are feeling a little "lost" at the moment and still need to book accommodation along the route...

      Traveling Botswana on individual basis

      by BE001903 Online Now Aug 3, 2014 at 9:43 AM

      We would like to visit Botswana; Chobe, Okavango, Kalahari , Moremi and visit to the Vic falls in 3 weeks. We've already visited Namibia and South Africa on separate travels so we do not intend to combine this journey with any of these countries. We want to travel on individual basis NOT in a (small) group. The quotes I've seen so far are very expensive. Does anyone know of a travel agent who is trustworthy and has reasonable prices (own experience)?

      I will be travelling on my own but would like to join up with a small group of people
      Who care about the environment. Travel companies seem a bit expensive for my budget as I am hoping to stay on in Africa over the UK winter. Any ideas please anyone? I am in Cape Town and expecting to leave for Johannesburg in 2 weeks.

      chobe national park

      by gizzer1 Online Now May 4, 2007 at 3:00 PM

      On South Africa tour, will be staying in Victoria Falls. Have one full free day & want to see Chobe National Park in Botswana.
      Seems safari companies websites visited only offer multi-day packages; hotels, safaris, etc.
      Anyone know any that offers one day tours to Chobe?
      Would like their URL in addition to their names.
