Not me but would LOVE to read a trip report! As much detail as you'd be willing to share on the whole trip!

My trip report must be short because my English is not very good.
We flight to Windhoek and rent a car (4x4). We should have rent a tourism, because the car was very expensive and the roads are very good – it was not necessary to rent a 4x4..
We drove around 1400 km to reach Victoria Falls.
Our itinerary:
a) Wke- Rundu – 715km – sleeps in a very nice lodge in the Okanvango River (N´Kwazi Lodge- Rundu)
b) Rundo – Namushasha Lodge – 400 km – lodge in the Kwando River – very nice.
c)Namushasha – Katima Mulilo – King´s Den Lodge – very nice lodge in the Chobe River. (200km drive). This lodge is not very exclusive, but has the better location of all others, because the rooms are almost in the water. We saw hippos around our room and elephants were not far away in the other side of the river.
d) Chobe- Mowana Lodge (15 minutes on boat from King´s Den Lodge). Also a nice lodge (like Chobe Marina Lodge, but more quiet)
e) Chobe – Vic Falls – Victoria Falls Safari Lodge – very nice also. I was happy to see that there are lot´s of people there, and also in the other hotels around Vic falls. We drove safely and walk in the village without problems. We also cross the bridge and visit Zambia and Royal Livingstone Hotel.
Return
f) Vic Falls – Maun (Botswana) – the only place that we didn´t find a nice place to stay
g) Maun – Windhoek (we stay in Wke Country Club)

Your english is easy to understand and we appreciate the efforts you make to communicate here. THANK YOU!
Can you tell us anymore about what you saw, about your individual game viewing experiences at the different lodges and about the accommodation? Also, which were your favourite places and why?
Many thanks again!

Fil, thank you for your trip report. Its interesting that the roads are good enough for a 2WD all the way to Vic Falls. Thank you for the information.

Fil, how neat to see hippos and elephants near your room at King's Den Lodge! I'll keep the place in mind if we ever return to Botswana.

Thanks for posting this!

Fil: Thank you for your post. You did a good job. I will be going to the southern part of Africa: Cape Town, Kruger/Balule, Vic Falls, and Chobe. Were you able to get bottled water easily? Thanks.

Thanks for the comments. I'm especially interested in the lodge at Kwando River--Namushasha Lodge.

Your English is fine!

Water to drink - no problem at all.

Namushasha Loge, it’s a very nice lodge. But many people stay at Lianshulu Lodge, that has been redecorated during January.
Lianshulu Lodge is next Namushasha. I didn’t visit it, but I imagine that is very nice also. We decide to stay at Namushasha, because we find the place lovely and they made us a good price (40% discount). And Lianshulu, when i phone gave me a quite expensive price.
But we met a german couple in King´s Den Lodge that had stayed in Lianshulu and they enjoy it.
But remember that if you want to see animals you must stay at King´s Den Lodge -
