Botswana/V Falls itinerary feedback

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip to Botswana and Victoria Falls for late June/early July and am overwhelmed at the options. (I'm finishing with a few days each in Cape Town and the Winelands, where I've been previously.) My only previous safari experience has been in Madikwe, SA. After a lot of research and back and forth with my travel agent, this is the proposed itinerary:

Pelo Camp (2 nights)
Shinde camp (2 nights)
Chobe Princess houseboat (2 nights)
Victoria Falls (2 nights)

Victoria Falls would have been a bit easier logistically to put at the beginning, but because rates in Botswana go up in July, we wanted to fit as much of Botswana in as possible before then.

I would really appreciate any feedback on the itinerary, either on the camps in particular, or the destinations. It's important to me to stay in private concessions so we can go off-road and also hopefully avoid the crowds.
