Kwando Safari Vehicles Botswana

Jump to last reply

Hi all, first post here. Planning a trip self driving in Namibia and then Botswana. Have picked Kwando as they are in our price range. The big problem I have is the seating arrangements on their vehicles. I understand they have two rows of three seats and will fill all the seats most of the time.

We can't afford a private vehicle and guide. We are keen photographers and I video as well. This year in Tanzania we splashed on a private guide in Tarangire and Serengeti. In the Selous we were lucky to get private except for one drive when we were matched with very annoying, chatty, arm waving, boring ........ you know, want to go back to the lodge rather than watch the lions hunt!

Anyway we are travelling end of May to Namibia and arrive in Botswana early June. How do you think we will get on with the shared vehicles and is it considered rude if you don't sit together but one behind the other on the outside???. We plan to stay at Little Kwara, Lagoon and Lebala followed by Muchenje and three nights at Waterberry Lodge. Would appreciate your comments and advice.
