Botswana September suggestions

Jump to last reply

We will be travelling to Botswana for the first time in September 2012. For us these experiences are about wildlife, tranquil settings and wildlife, and are not interested in overt luxury. This is our suggested itinerary:

2 nights Chitabe Lediba
2 nights Little Vumbra
3 nights Savuti

We will be arriving in Botswana after a walking safari in Zambia. Do these lodges seem like fitting choices for us? I know that that waters have been a little higher last year and this year. Our first interest is to see wildlife and so we geared our thinking more towards game drives and land based activities, but we also love the sound of the tranquility of the Okavango water experience. In September, will we get our water experience between Little Vumbra and Savuti, or should we add something more water focussed and reduce our nights at Savuti? Which lodge would you recommend? We prefer to stick with WIlderness-Safaris as it seems that we will do better sticking with one operator. Would Tuba Tree Camp be a good choice, or another classic, or would you stick with what we have? I hear that Chitabe Lediba is now refurbished so presume that being the smaller camp it will now be the better choice over Chitabe Main? Or will the family rooms mean more likely chance of children?

Thank you for your suggestions....
