  1. Re: Camp outside of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park

    Where is the overflow site at Polentswa, compared to the other 3 sites? I have never heard of it.

    Re: Botswana Itinerary 13 Days March/April

    I think your driving style is fine, if that is what you prefer. We at times will burn a day just driving from one spot to another and that works for us.

    Kasane to Nxai Pan is doable in one day. ...
  3. Re: Mabuasehube to Nossab travel and camping advice

    I would have to agree with the Mpaya sites and Lesho#2 as the best, based on our one trip into Mabua. As far as the Mabua trail, I do not think they will let you do it without a minimum of 2...

    Re: Mabua & CKGR in Sept

    I cannot comment on towing a trailer as we were in a rented Bushcamper, but can share some of our travel times.

    In 2017 we stayed at Kalahari Rest Camp (just north of Kang) before heading into...

    We drove through Stockpoort Border Post both on our way to, and way back from CKGR in October 2019. As Jack B states, very easy. We had the same problem with GPS, and just relied on an old...

    Re: Kgalagadi - Bots to Sa Side Traveling

    I realize I am late to the discussion, but just wanted to offer our experience from 2017. We drove Khiding to Nossob in one day on the Mabua Trail via Mosomane. (This sign at the start on the Mabua...

    Re: Kalarahi roads and Hukuntsi hotel

    The info from dickr above is spot on, from our experience in November 2017. It took us just under 3 hours to drive Hukuntsi to the Mabua gate, and the worst part of the drive was the 10 (?) kms from...
  15. Re: Checking time from Deception to Khama Rhino Sanctuary

    I can share this, from our trip in Sept/Oct.

    I can only offer feedback on the fuel situation. There is a relatively new Puma station, and we have filled up there with diesel twice in the past 14 months. Supply was not an issue.
    I think, but...
  18. Re: Looking for help - Campsite March 17th Nossob or Polentswa

    We did this trail at the end of November 2017.
    From just beyond Khiding, we departed at 8am. We arrived at the Mosomane campsite approximately 945am.
    We stopped for some breakfast for about 45...

    Given the choice, would you recommend 3 nights at Khumaga, or 3 nights at Khutse? We had originally thought Khumaga, but after reading some trip reports, have to admit that Khutse sounds appealing...

    We took the Mosomane route last November. I am under the impression that you must be two vehicles on this route. That is what we were told at the gate/reception when we asked, and there were 2...
