I slept a bit late on booking for camping at Third Bridge (Moremi), Savute and Ihaha. In none of these camps are place available towards the end of June / beginning of July 2012. Botswanaselfdrive4x4 can apparently assist in trying to get campsites based on cancellations. My questions:
Is the camping fees charged by them realistic? Camping + Park fees + vehicle = 1362.5 BWP per night (Family =5, 2 adults and 3 kids aged 15,13 and 11)?
Has anyone perhaps experience in using their services?
If I do not find place at the Park campsites, are there any other suggestions for camping? I believe their is a community camp site outside North Gate. Can we just pitch there? And any GPS co-ordinates perhaps?
And where could we potentially camp in Kasane?
Would I be able to drive from Maun to Kasane in 1 day?
If not, any suggestions of where we can stay over for a night on our way there if Savute and the likes are fully booked?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
