I'm taking a tour in Botswana where they'll drop me off in Nata around 10am. Is it easy to find public transport from there to Maun on the same day?
I need to be in Maun the following day.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Lonely Planet community,

I’m planning to travel to Botswana in September 2018 with a friend. We will travel afterwards to Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa for a period of 6 months. Because it's really expensive to hire a car for such a long period, we decided to buy a second-handed car in Gaborone and to sell the car again 6 months later in Gaborone or Johannesburg. We are looking for more information regarding the purchase and licensing of a car in Botswana. I hope to get some answers…

Hi everyone :)

I’m just putting together the itinerary for my Botswana trip.

I know you can bus from Kasane to Maun via Nata. I know this sets off from Kasane to Nata about (3hr) then change bus to Maun (am I right in thinking this is possible in 1 day?)

Then my other question is regarding Maun to Fracistown - I assume this is also via Nata? Does anybody know how long it takes? We may overnight in Nata to see the bird sanctuary if it’s particularly long.

Other than that do you know of…

Hi,

I am new at this forum and I want some tips for my coming trip on November.
We are going to Zambia on November 6th, but we will stay 4-5 days in Botswana.
Start and end point: Kasane.
Could somebody advise what possible to see in 4 days by self drive?
This will be first time in Africa.

I ve read through some posts that you can visit Chobe and Okavango self 4x4 driving if its not very floaded, or in sandy places, better to drive early in the morning so the floor is a bit harder.
But we have not a lot of experience driving 4x4, Do you think we should be ok for unexperienced drivers? Or we better off join an organized tour?
Another thing, Do you know if there are campsites around these areas? And should we book for august?
Thanking you inadvanced,
Estef

Hi,
a friend and I plan to travel from Namibia to Botswana with a short trip to Livingstone back to Namibia.
Now we are looking for a place to rent a 4x4. As we are both students we are looking for a cheap vehicle. Do you have any recommendation where to rent a car in Windhoek? We were also thinking about going to Johannesburg by bus to get a car over there. We have found some places to rent cars in Windhoek, however the problem was that cars seemed to be rather cheap, but they became more…

Hi all,
What is the best way to get between Kasane and Maun? I read something in my LP guidebook about there being a combi or bus (I think, I don't have the book with me) and I also saw there were flights. I'm travelling on my own, so won't have the option of driving. I usually travel using local transport to see more and to save money, but at the same time don't want a lot of hassle.
Thanks in advance!

Hi all,

I'm in the early stages of researching a trip to Southern Africa. I am aiming to go in Sept/Oct this year, but I know I'm leaving the planning late - if I can't get camp bookings then I will plan for the same time next year (like I said, early stages - my job is unpredictable!) I should have around 3 weeks.

This will be my fourth solo trip to Africa and I have always self driven there before - 3 weeks in Namibia, and several weeks in Kruger. I would like to branch out a little this…

Hi I am a 31 year old female who has traveled the world, but never Africa and never alone. I am trying to plan a trip to Africa sometime between Aug and October and plan to stay about a month. I am physically active and have a passion for wildlife. I would love to volunteer at an animal orphanage or sanctuary where I can get up close with some animals. I am also on a budget and do not need a luxury trip. I was able to stretch $3000 in spending money to last me for 3 months traveling around South…
