Botswana

On this trip, I visited Botswana between 12-Jul-2008 and 26-Jul-2008 and I travelled with 4 other people.

Overall my trip experience was:

ExcellentExcellent

Overall it was marvellous.

The mobile safari with Grant was definitely the best bit of the holiday and well worth repeating,
Linyanti came a close second.

Shinde was very disappointing, the excellent facitlies were badly let down by the poor management and guiding

A couple of bits of information that others may find useful:

It's sandy underfoot at the campsites
Occasional clouds of dust unavoidable at this time of year, with this, photographers need to be cautious about changing lenses if using SLRs and contact lens wearers may find spectacles more practical
Getting a square to round plug adapter can be useful, gives increased flexibility at fixed sites and necessary for Grant's inverter on the mobile safari.

I stayed at and have reviewed:
