Information on Botswana
Botswana is not a cheap travel destination but it is worth every penny to be able to explore and see animals in their natural habitat with minimal interference by man. This is not an experience you can expect in most of the other destinaions. Guided self drive camping will cost approx. US$ 350 per person per day and the vehicle another US$150 per day
Some ideas of where we like to travel to :
Nxai Pan A huge flat area with some waterholes. Lovely photo oppotunities at the waterholes when the animals come to drink.
Central Kalahari Game Reserve This massive arid game reserve with scattered waterholes is a wilderness area of note. We often have predators in the camp sites
Makgadigadi Game Reserve This reserve opens onto the Makgadigadi salt pans and forms part of the annual migration. It has a large river on the one boundry which attracts large amounts of animals and birdlife
Makgadigadi Salt Pans with Kubu island
Moremi ( Okavango ) This area is the famous Okavango and needs no introduction
Chobe Game Reserve – this is in 2 sections . There is a Chobe riverfront area and then a more arid area linking this area to Moremi ( very simplistic explanation ) Savuti is in the second area.
Khwai which is a community area bordering Moremi and Chobe and is unfenced into Moremi and Chobe resulting in fantastic animal sightings
Okavango Panhandle where the Okavango begins and the river flows into the Okavango (especially if you like to tiger fish)
Tsodilo Hills which is an area of hills on the West of the Okavango Panhandle covered in rock art
