After a year or two of just chatting about it,My dad called me yesterday to see if i'm keen to do Overland through Namibia and Botswana, in June 2016. Obviously , its a tight prep time, but we like to travel light, and with just my Dad and Mom in their DC Hilux, and Myself and Jess in my GU Patrol Pickup, i dont see any issues as we both fairly fitted in our own preferred ways.
My folks are good travellers and dont shy away from tough roads and tracks, however, no Grade 4/5 tracks for them , if you know what i mean, so please keep that in mind..
Due to recent cost hikes etc, and personal preference, we plan to Camp almost every night throughout the trip. My folks have roughly 17days and Jess and i have 17+ days, .... Obviously we wont be able to see everything, so....
Although we have visited many other african countries, we have not seen Namibia nor Bots..
I write to to invite any advice for such a trip, particularly in regard to :
1) Best Route advice
2) Special places of interest?
3) Best Camp sites?
4) Any ideas on Delta Tours?
5) Places / Things we MUST DO?
6) Any interesting "Long way round" roads or "shortcuts" that may offer a better drive?
7) Kubu in June ?
8) Best Parks for game and most interesting terrain/ roads?
Obviously i will think of more but for now i'm just eager to read of your findings , and thank you all in advance for any response no matter how small.
Russ and Fam.
