    Re: Makgadikgadi Pans

    Yup, like I said, I'm biased as I didn't have a great time at Khumaga. The whole camp and along the river was just filled with livestock, and I'm not talking about 1 or 2 donkeys, literally hundreds...

    Re: Makgadikgadi Pans

    Personally I'd skip Khumaga and camp at Baines instead. I'm biased though as I didn't have a great experience at Khumaga (loved Baines)

    Definetely do Kubu island if you can as well. From Khumaga...

    Re: Do you need to book for CKGR?

    You need to book.

    Depending on which camps you want to go to you'll have to book through DWNP and/or Bigfoot tours. As far as I understand they're are not taking bookings for 2021 yet as they're...
  6. Re: T4A Navigator iPhone app any good, it seams outdated?

    You can but it also takes some getting used to. I found the way you create a multi-point route a bit strange in the beginning. See attached pics; here's a basic CKGR (North to South) trip. Being T4A...
  7. Re: T4A Navigator iPhone app any good, it seams outdated?

    I use the T4A app. I actually prefer it over T4A on the Garmin (as I only have a Nuvi and you loose a lot of detail on that).

    The interface is tricky to get use to in the beginning but once you're...

    Hi Jurie,

    Maybe let's start with what you mean by wild camping; is it camping for self-sufficient self-drive campers in demarcated areas with no facilities, self-drive campers camping in a bush...

    Technically yes, though personally I wouldn't advise it. We only saw 3 other vehicles in 12 days so if you get into trouble for whatever reason you could be by yourself for days. At the very least...
