Trip Report Kgalagadi and the Okavango with Masson Safaris

Jump to last reply

Myself and 2 friends spent 5 wonderful weeks in South Africa and Botswana during July and August, 2011. This was my 4th safari, Cheryl’s second and Caryl’s first, so a real mix of safari experience and expectations.

Highlights of the 3 in Kgalagadi and the Okavango included 2 handsome male lions at Langklaas, striped mice, a crimson-breasted shrike with a kill, hyena pups, entertaining yellow mongoose and ground squirrels and plenty of bat-eared fox. The Okavango region delivered stunning elephant viewing, a herd of roan antelope, baboon family fun and many honking hippos and shy red lechwe.

A full trip report with photos is available at http://safaritalk.net/index.php?showtopic=7333

The itinerary was:

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park (KTP) - Nossob Rest Camp (3 nights), Gharagab Wilderness Camp (2 nights), Kalahari Tented Camp (2 nights) and Kalahari Rest for 2 nights between Maun and KTP. Photos available at https://picasaweb.go...ansfrontierPark
Mobile camping safari with Masson Safaris. Savute – 4 nights, Khwai – 3 nights and Moremi 3 nights. Photos available at https://picasaweb.go...ica2011Botswana
