Klink lekker Dirk

Paar algemene goed:
Ek weet nie so lekker van suid-hek vir kampering nie. Die Moremi word myns insiens eers mooi as jy verder in is. ek sou kyk na derde brug, Xakanaxa of dalk Khwai (hierdie laaste kan dalk heelwat goedkoper wees, maar die diens is nie altyd op standaard nie).

Linyanti is omtrent 40-50km se sagte sand van Savuti af, en Savuti is reeds 'n stewige ent van Noordhek af. Ek dink derde brug na Linyanti is te ver vir een dag se gemaklikke ry, so as jy Linyanti toe moet jy by Xaka of Khwai bly, anders moet jy dalk by Savuti oorslaap.

Ek was nog nooit by Linyanti nie, maar oud-forumiet JG Shields het dit by hoog aangeskryf. Persoonlik hou ek baie van Savuti, al is dit 'n besige, moontlik raserige kamp. As jy by Savuti bly en jy het die keuse, probeer var van die ablusieblokke wegkom.

Maar in terme van wildkyk-geleenthede dink ek gaan mens in suider-afrika nie maklik die stuk van die Chobe wat langs die rivier le klop nie, en die beste basis om daardie area vanaf te bekyk is ihaha... Senyati is na genoeg, tensy jy 'n fotograaf is wat jou fotos in die "golden hour" wil neem. Dan MOET jy by Ihaha bly.Ek het egter geen idee hoe lekker dit is om by ihaha te bly nie.

Daar is drie goed op hierdie roete wat jy absoluut moet doen:
1) 'n vlug oor die delta.
2) Sunset cruise uit Kasane.
3) Dagbesoek aan Vic Valle.

Maar 'n Makoro-trippie in die Moremi is ook baie lekker.

Ek sou Kaziikini voorstel as blyplek "in" Maun. Dit is nie "in" Maun nie, maar is naby genoeg, en lekker rustig.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Ons het ook by Xakanaxa gekamp en nie by die Derde brug nie.

Ek dink nie jy het die aand tussen kubu en Nxai Pan nodig nie? Ek sou meer tyd in Savuti wou he indien moontlik.

Vir die res lyk dit great!

Hi Peter,

Posted a reply but forgot to save a draft!

Is the trip 'fixed' as in dates and places to stay?

This is my tour country!

Will give some of my input's

Ihaha is a great camp, will stay there for a week if I could the animals come to the camp site!

Flight over the Falls, if not done yet is a must!

Chobe sunset cruise as you say is also a must do, I now have them as 'must do activities' on my tours.

Got the final invoice from Tara over the weekend - so just need to pay to confirm the dates this morning....

Flying and myself do not go well together so think I will skip this :redface:

Sunset cruise already booked as well :thumbup:

Its going to be a long wait till end of August 2016.....
