      I am planning a self-drive camping trip for 2 in December 2015. Is it advisable to travel from Sandton, South Africa to Kasane via Nata while Botswana is suffering from a water shortage greater than is usual? Or should I take drinking water sufficient for 12 days?

    • 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.
