    Did you stay in any particular campsite at Erindi? We have not stayed there.
  8. Re: Botswana Itinerary 13 Days March/April

    Agree, choose Moremi/Chobe or CKGR/Nxai.

    Driving from one campsite to the other on a daily basis is more like hard work than a holiday. When driving from one to the other, game viewing will not be...

    Yep, have to agree about the heavy tusks gene pool in south-eastern Kenya. In Amboseli and the Tsavo's, even the elephant cows seem to average heavier tusks than generally seen in Southern Africa.
