Off to Botswana in 48 hours

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone - I'm about to leave on my first trip to Botswana (with one day in Zimbabwe to visit Vic Falls). Thanks to all who gave me advice many months ago as I planned this trip. This is such a fun forum to read - my wish list for my 3rd trip to Africa is already forming and I'm not even home from my 2nd trip yet. I'll be staying at Banoka, Chitabe and Duma Tau in Botswana and look forward to telling you all of my adventures when I return.

I'm planning on taking only a backpack and the very small duffle bag provided by my travel agency - Africa Adventure Company - therefore avoiding the checking of any luggage. I am not known for traveling light, so this will be a minor miracle in itself. I haven't actually packed yet, but I'm confident I can do it.

Any last minute words of wisdom from the collective group before I depart on my first solo trip to Africa??

Jean
