Has anybody used the Botswana/Namibia border crossing at Mamuno? From Maun via Ghanzi.
Looking to do it with public transport.
I've seen a few older posts that it is possible bit I'm after some more up to date Information.
Thanks for any information.
I’m planning my trip to Botswana in November , arriving there from Namibia.
1. Can anyone please tell me if it’s possible to reach Maun from Bagani by public transport?
2. How long does it usually take to complete the immigration process in Mohembo? Will I need the required visas beforehand?
3. Are there any interesting spots to stop in the way to Maun?
I'm at the very beginning of planning a trip to Namibia/Botswana next summer, and am contemplating flight logistics. These are the locations I would like to visit. Since I understand that this is a question about 2 countries, I'm posting the same thread on the Namibia forum as well.
- Etosha N.P. (Namibia)
- Sossuvlei (Namibia)
Fish River Canyon (Namibia) - MAYBE
- Chobe N.P. (Botswana)
- Okavango Delta (Botswana)
- Moremi G.R. (Botswana) MAYBE
- Makgadikgadi Pans N.P…
What makes Chobe special to the others?
I'm travelling the whole neighbourhood so can't afford to do every national park / safari. By the time I'm in Botswana, I would've been in the South Luangwa in Zambia and plan on definitely doing Etosha in Namibia and (probably already Mana pools, etc area in Zimbabwe) - is it worth doing Chobe as well??
Any notes or advice from folks who have been around a few would be very much appreciated.
I am looking at travelling with Drifters Adventure Tours to Botswana this year. Has anyone traveled with them and if so can you let me know how you found them . Thanks!!
I am aware of the costs associated with fly in camps vs mobile camping safaris in and around the Okavango Delta. What I'm interested in learning is how each compare strictly from a wildlife viewing perspective. It looks like most mobile safaris skirt the perimeter of the delta (I'm assuming because water prevents access by ground vehicle). The mobile safaris may hit Savute, Moremi, before heading into Chobe and/or Kwando a River area in Or near Namibia. Fly in safaris take you to camps in the…
We will be in north and northwest Botswana in the beginning of January, 4x4. Rainy season - is it worth a try with Maun/Okawango or is it better to choose Nxai? Totally different areas, but in Maun/Okavango we heard it can be raining for days, not so nice for gamedrives/boattrips...if that´s true? Probably risk for rain in Nxai to, but maybe not so much?
Someone also told us that driving from Kasane-Savuti-Maun is an extreme 4x4 - in the dryseason - but in January it´s more of a…
We are two people flying from belgium to johanesbourg for 2 weeks. We are interested in doing either a 4x4 drive safari with a driver or a self drive safari. Mostly camping with maybe two exceptions for medium range accomodation for two three nights.
