Hi, we are from US and will be in TZ next month for 2 weeks. One week is pretty much planned-out, with a local/exPat who's putting together the itinerary, and we're paying a set-amount for all the lodging/food/transport. Second week is on a safari in 4 parks. Most everything will be included in the safari. We're not huge souvenir people, nor big drinkers, but if we like the food, we may spend money trying everything available...

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…
