Hi Guys, I am in the early stages of planning a trip in Africa for next year (Im thinking late March) and I am looking for (large amounts!) of advice. My initial plan, which is in need of plenty of refinement and detail is the following: Fly into Victoria falls and from there visit Chobe and possibly the Okavango Delta. Spend about a week around this area. I then want to fly to Kruger and spend a few days there, I may spend a few days in Johannesburg on the way to Kruger. I am thinking of staying at the Gomo Gomo game lodge in Kruger. After this I plan on flying to Cape Town and spending 4 or 5 days exploring the city and surrounding area.
I am trying to figure out the best way of doing the Botswana leg of the trip. There doesn’t seem to be any tours that do a loop through the north of the country through Chobe, the Delta and then back to Victoria Falls (and I hear that there isn’t much in the South of the Country so I don’t want to spend a lot of time travelling through this area). I am not looking for high end accommodation, a basic lodge or camping is all I want. I considered driving myself but from what I have seen the roads can be challenging and I don’t have experience of 4x4 driving so I am ruling out this option.
Does anybody have suggestions as to how I could do this, the best budget places to stay or do people I should change the route I take altogether?
