Trip Report Back from Botswana

Jump to last reply

Hello old and new Fodor's Friends!

I've just returned from a wonderful Botswana safari planned by Bill Given. I joined 10 others, including ShayTay, in Joburg, then flew on to Maun where the adventure began. The itinerary was as follows:
Xakanaxa Fly Camp, 9/9-11, three nights
Mapula Lodge, 9/12-14, three nights
Savuti Fly Camp, 9/15-17, three nights
Ichobezi Safari Boat, 9/18-19, two nights
(I also spent 9/20-25 in Cape Town visiting my daughter who's there doing volunteer work.)

I'm very weak on trip reports - don't even keep a journal, (shame on me!) - but I've already gotten most of my pics online. For those interested, log onto:

As I said to Bill, I'm in that post melancholy, wistful, can't-stop-thinking-about-the-trip phase. Coming home and re-entering society is very tough for me.

Anyway, I'm more than willing to respond to any questions you might have about these places, I'm just unlikely to ever post a "formal" trip report....sorry.
