I just cancelled 6 day trip to Botswana and Ichingo lodge because I really couldnt afford $11,000 for 2 people. Now we are looking at less expensive option to see Chobe since we will be at Victoria Falls. This is in August and we have those open nights. We are also doing self drive Kruger at end of trip, and maybe when in Capetown go to ADDO elephant park. Of course we want to see and experience as much wildlife as possible on our first African trip. Should we try to go to Chobe? And can we do on a budget? We are married this is our 40th anniversary, we do not need fancy at all.
