Botswana & South Africa in 21 days?

I'm going to Jbr mid December for 21 days, want to include Botswana too.
Going with my husband, we mostly like self-drive - no tours trip.

I'm a little confused about how organize my itinerary. It will be too much drive from Jbr to Okavango Delta?

It is too far to drive from Jhb to the Okavango in one day as it is over 1000km - plus you have a border post to cross.

But apart from one short stretch the road all the way is good. In Botswana you need to be very careful driving as cows, donkeys and goats block any fast moving access. ALSO DON"T DRIVE AT NIGHT - it is not a matter of you might have an accident - it is the case of you will have an accident.

Most people travelling this route overnight at Khama Rhino Sanctuary just outside Serowe or find accommodation in Lethlakane - the latter I can help you with as I live here. Where are you staying in the Okvango - what are your plans
