    For sure. We travel alone most of the time, but have a satphone available at least. And stay away from any dark grey patches on the Pans.

    Re: Lethlakane - Kubu island - Gweta

    We usually do Kubu to Nxai Pan in a day. Easy, even with a long lunch stop at Gweta Lodge. Just get going early from Kubu.

    As lekhubu943 said: don't bargain on Gweta - very unreliable. It's a bonus if they have fuel. Plan as if there won't be any fuel.
