Budget Safari options in Botswana?

Jump to last reply

I feel a little foolish including the word "Budget" and "Safari" in one sentence. But I have about 4-5 days in Botswana, flying in at Maun early morning. I plan to do the Okavango delta and then head to Chobe, before crossing into Vic Falls to catch my flight, travelling alone.

1. Should I arrange a safari upon arrival there at Maun or at the entrance of Okavango Delta? Based on experience, tours are cheaper if you do it yourself, rather than book online.

2. What are good options for the Chobe NP? How much should i expect to spend if I wanted to maybe do one night on the boat trip?

3. Would Hwange be a better option than say Chobe? Truth is I'm there more for the whole experience, rather than setting a goal like the big 5's, etc
