Namibia/Botswana Safari

Jump to last reply

I have enjoyed reading about everyone's African trips and my husband and I just settled on the itinerary for an April 2003 trip to Namibia and Botswana. For those interested I will post it here.
Special thanks go to Kavey and Evelyn Travel, who were both very helpful in their postings and in personal email, in passing along information on their trips and I will be happy to do the same for others as soon as we actually take it. Right now I'm just sharing the itinerary with those who may want to follow this along.
4/21/03 Depart Atlanta on South African Airways for J'burg.
4/22 Arrive and depart for Windhoek, Namibia.
Overnight at the Winkhoek Country Club Resort.
4/23 Early morning flight to Sossusvlei Wilderness Camp for two nights.
4/25 Transfer to Wolwedans Dune Lodge for 2 nights.
4/27 Flight over the dunes of the Namib and Sossusvlei, enroute to Swakopmund. Continue to Meob Bay on the Atlantic Ocean and along the Namibia coastline. Fly over the Skeleton Coast, Eduard Bolen shipwreck, past Conception Bay and the wreck site of the Shaunee, the Flamingoes at Walvis Bay, and on to Swakopmund. After lunch and tour, continue by charter flight on to Damaraland, and Huab Lodge for 2 nights.
4/28 Flight to and overnight in Windhoek at Hilltop House awaiting early morning flight to Botswana.
4/29 Scheduled flight to Maun, Botswana, and transfer from Maun to Xigera Camp in the Okavango Delta for 2 nights. This is a water based camp.
5/02 Flight transfer to Little Mombo Camp on Mombo Island, in the Moremi Game Reserve in Northern Botswana.
5/05 Flight to J'burg and on to the USA.

We have been to Botswana earlier in 1999, and to East Africa, in 1993. I was to Botswana with Earthwatch in 1991. I fell in love with Botswana and wanted to show my husband the beauty of the Okavango, and the beautiful stars at night. He too just fell in love with it. It will be our first time to Namibia, and I'll have to admit that Kavey played largely into this. Anyone reading her trip report couldn't help but be captivated by her poetic descriptions of the terrain. We had considered Namibia, but until then, we hadn't put action into it. Thanks again Kavey.
Thats all I can say for now. Anyone having questions about the itinerary I can answer. Anything about the country would best be addressed to Kavey and/or Evelyn. Liz Frazier
