Bush Camp recommendation

We'll probably travel next year in March as that is when most of the green season specials end.
Namibia will be one night in Sossusvlei to see the sand dunes at sunrise, then I really want to see Wolwedans Dune Lodge after Kavey's glowing report on the area a couple of years ago.
So I would hope to begin in Windhoek, then go to Botswana and Chief's Camp. From there to Zambia and then we may add Mala Mala for 3 nights. I vacillate on that last one. Originally I wanted to go to South Luangwa and decided to skip and go to Sausage Tree and Lechwe Plains. So then to see leopards where else? Mala Mala. Safarinut makes Main Camp sound like something I mustn't pass up as I believe Mala Mala will go the way of most of Sabi Sands and update and charge more as they probably could. So we need to go soon. Don't care for all the luxury. After 20 years of Africa, the old zip flap tent opening holds a certain charm and nostalgia not found in entering through a wooden door.

I do hope you make it to Wolwedans some day soon...
The chalets do have a wooden door into them (and so do those at Mombo) but the walls are canvas and, as I think I mentioned, we left the long wall opposite the foot of the bed rolled up open all night and slept and awoke looking at at those incredible views...
I can't wait to get there again!

I know Wolwedans isn't the tents like Botswana, but thats okay. Gee, with the walls all rolled up, I don't care how I get into the cabin. It's different in Namibia, then the Delta. Actually I think Selinda has doors too. I meant that the extra luxe things aren't so important to us. A few days on the Delta with meru-style tents is enough for us. I will get to Namibia eventually, hopefully we can work it into next years trip. The trip just keeps getting bigger and with Mala Mala now, I hope we get to Wolwedans. I think we'll get back from Botswana next month before you take off on your big trip. I'll let you know about the flood, unless someone else here gets back first. I'll still let you know though. Liz

Liz I can't wait to hear about your trip. I know how sad you were to cancel that last trip to Botswana so this one really is going to be a special one for you and Max.
If I don't "e-speak" to you before it, here's wishing you a great trip!

Thanks Kavey-
This trip really doesn't make up for the lost trip, but its a "FIX", if you know what I mean.
I think our next trip will cover more like what we wanted on the other one.
I know you must be thrilled about your big trip to South Africa. That would literally wear us out, but I wish for good health to you both.
When you are in Kenya, Isaac, (our guide) can point out your namesake giraffes. He seemed to imprint them on his mind a few times. I really cannot comment about that trip, I think you understand. Not being rude here, just honest. Be safe. Liz
