Self-drive through Botswana - Moremi and Chobe

Jump to last reply

We are planning a self-drive trip through Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe from June 15 - July 27. We are picking our 4x4 truck and camping gear in Pretoria and heading north from there. One of the routes we are considering is to head over to Maun (Botswana) and head NE through the western edge of Moremi Wildlife Reserve and up to Muchenje/Ngoma in Chobe Forest Reserve/NP. We would then cross over into Zambia at Ngoma Bridge.

We are wondering about the state of flooding in Moremi - I've read that the flooding is higher than usual this year. We would be travelling through Moremi and Chobe around the 3rd week of June. Does anybody know how the 4x4 trails are in these areas (or expect them to be in 3rd week of June)?

Also, we considered travelling this route (but in reverse order) 2 years ago when we were travelling in the area, but ended up not taking this route because we were told that all of the public campsites were fully booked and we wouldn't be able to make it through the entire route (from Kasane to Maun) in one day - this would have been around the end of July 2009. Any comments/thoughts on availability of campsites around the 3rd week of June? The campsites we'd be considering would be South Gate, North Gate, Third Bridge or Xakanaxa in Moremi and Savute in Chobe.
