Self-drive Kasane, Savuti, Khwai, Maun in June

Hi all,

I'm planning to self-drive in a 4x4 Hilux from Kasane via Savutu, Khwai (possibly Third Bridge?) to Maun in mid-June. I thought this was going to be relatively straightforward given it will be the dry season, but reading about the record flood levels this year I'm now getting slightly concerned.. Do I need to be worried about flooded roads and / or campsites being closed? If yes, which areas are likely to be particularly affected?

Any tips would be very welcome!

Thanks in advance

Yip, it's pretty fully booked for that period. I've just driven that route (actually turning around today to head back).

But I was able to get some last minute bookings almost all along the way on my last four trips (in spite of doing most of the bookings 6-12 months in advance). So all is not lost ...

The sand has been hectic, and getting worse all the time.
