Itinerary and other information
 
This safari is a combination of wildlife and wild water in Botswana and Caprivi in Namibia. We travel via Nata to Kazangula where the first water experience awaits before we visit the Kwando river in Caprivi with its abundance of wild- and birdlife. This is suited for families since it is during the September school holidays in 2020.

From Stockpoort, we travel via Mahalapya, Francistown and Nata to Elephant Sands where we camp for the night. Elephant Sands are famous for the many elephants that visit the waterhole in front of the bar and restaurant area.

We cross into Namibia, stock up on supplies in Katima Mulilo before we travel to our campsite on the Kwando river for the next two nights.
