    The difference in conservation fees between Kruger and Serengeti is not really 10 times. If comparing apples to apples (non-SADC visitors in KNP and non-EA visitors in Serengeti), the difference is...

  8. Re: Travel advice Northern Namibia and northern Botswana : mid-November to mid-decemb

    Not many 4x4 rental agencies will allow you over Van Zyl's (or even into Kaokoveld in general).

    This, no charge for camping and only paying park entrance fees for Mudumu, was certainly the case on both our visits - last one was less than a year ago. Camping is free.

    The easiest scapegoat to blame are probably overseas visitors in rented 4x4s. Yet, I've never seen a track, or even a whole park/reserve, where overseas visitors with rented vehicles would not be...
