Safari in Moremi & Savuti

We want to take safaris in Africa. We are looking at AudiCamp and Phakawe Safari. Any suggestions for Moremi, Savuti, & Okavango Delta? Is it too rainy January 26-Feb. 4, 2001 to take a safari in this region? We are also planning an Arusha Tazmania safari(7 Day) with Hoopoe Aventure. We are having trouble hearing back from them. Also thinking about Kenya..Safari Seekers if it is too wet in Botswana. Any first hand information on any of this?

Audi Camp is a very basic Camp that is on the outskirts of the Town of Maun it is NOT in the Okavango Delta, and quite honestly is only used by self-drive people and overland safari companies as a restcamp before going into the Okavango Delta.It would be ok for an overnight stay, but not as a base.
The only way you can get into the Okavango Delta is by light aircraft from Maun.
There are two low cost Campsites actually in the Okavango Delta; Oddballs and Gunn's Camp - of the two Oddballs is the best. Both Camps offer the possibility of either staying at the camp, or going out on Mokorro Trail - camping in the 'bush' accompanied by your own personal Guide. Both cost around US$150 per person per night, plus the cost of the return flight -around $120 per person.
Lodges and Camps abound in the Okavango, costing from $300pppnto an amazing $1400 pppn.
Although January is technically the rainy season, if it does rain it is usuall sporadic heavy bursts of rain, and should not spoil your excursions.
Although the Okavango Delta is the most expensive destination in Africa, it is also the most unspoilt and beautiful, so if you can afford the prices, chose it!
