Botswana safari in January?

Jump to last reply

Hi all Fodorites

I've had some great advice from this forum recently and hoping you can also help me with this.
We're planning to safari in January 2010, beginning with a self-drive Kruger. Then we plan to come back to Johannesburg, fly to Vic Falls and spend about 5 days there for the Falls but also hopefully for a few days on safari - Botswana/Chobe? Ideally we'd like to drive ourselves (we have a small budget!) but I understand it may be too wet for us to try and drive ourselves at this time of year.

Would someone please like to give us some advice on whether we should self-drive, or alternatively recommend an inexpensive way of seeing the wildlife in the area?
We're also working on plans for an overland tour for about 10 days in Tanzania, in order to make the best of our wildlife opportunities in Africa.

Many thanks
Chrissie :-)
