Looking for travellers on a Moremi/Savuti/Chobe safari in October 2011Hello everyone,
I am one of four other travellers (2 Swiss, 1 Dutch and 1 Canadian) who have banded together with the Audi Camp to organize a safari to Moremi/Savuti and Chobe from Oct 24, 2011 to Oct 29, 2011 (dates are firm). We are looking for 2 or 3 intrepid travellers to join the fun in Botswana. This isn't a luxury safari, but there will be a driver and cook to help with the meals.
I have struck lightning twice on Thorntree, and found other travelers for adventures in Ethiopia and East Africa. I am hoping to score the perfect trifecta this time.
I have provided the details and costs for the trip below. Please send me a Private Message if you are interested, or have any further questions.
I look forward to hearing to from you. Cheers.
