Questions about self driving Moremi

Hello,

Hope some one can give me some advice.

If we sleep outside the Moremi NP, are we allowed to do self driving in the park.( or in Savuti )

The lodges in the Moremi are too expensive for us.

We don t have a car with equipment, so camping is not an option.

Which lodge is better Mogotlho or Mankwe.

If it is allowed to do the driving in the park where do we get our permits.

We are driving from Kasane to one of the lodges

Hi,

We have slept both inside and outside the Moremi NP and it is allowed to do self driving in the park regardless of where you sleep. To sleep inside the park you need to pre-book your stay. If you just want to selfdrive during the day you just have to register in the entrance to the park. They have an office there and you pay a small fee.

We havn't stayed at either Mogotiho or Mankwe so I can unfortunately not help you there.

Have fun :o)

There are a couple new places at Khwai that are reasonable.

Not sure what you would be happy with, and assuming that the lodges are way too much. You can stay in the ensuite tents at Savute and 3rd Bridge.

At Khwai river and outside the park near North Gate there is the refurbished Tsaro Lodge, the very basic Kllk Guest House. Sango Safari Camp is much nicer(and pricier) and does activities like bush walks. This area is very popular with the self drive. Lots of good wildlife sightings.

Hello,

Thank you for the good advice.

More options.

Do you know the rate for the Tsaro Lodge, i have emailed 2 company s, they said they are not in buisness.

Tsaro lodges looks good for us.

Another question what do you think about the Mogotlho Lodge?

Zwolle: We did a self-drive, and not sure why you don't mention what you're driving. You need a "high clearance" vehicle in Moremi, otherwise you risk getting stuck. We had a Land Rover with a pop-up tent, recommended in Moremi because of the elephants.

Zwolle: it's gorgeous. Have a great time. If you change your mind and camp, we can tell you that Savuti has good facilities, very clean, plentiful showers with hot water.

You may know this already (but just in case you don't), you can avoid the gigantic safari vehicles from the expensive camps in Moremi (which clog the one-car wide path after a radio call goes out that someone has spotted something) by doing your safari at dawn and also when those camps are serving breakfast (about 9 to 10:30). We beat the crowds (in July) by driving during the big camps' dinner hours, generally beginning our evening safari around 6 PM. Hope this helps. Hooray for independent travelers.
