    From my experience, pitch your camp and stay there. No need to drive around. The animals come to you.

    We will be staying at Dijara for a week in mid September. Initially I was a bit skeptical about the proximity of the town Mababe to the camp, but Puma has put my mind at easy that we will have a great time at Dijara and that the town wont be a problem. I literally cannot wait to get to the bush and relax. The bakkie so to say packed and ready to go...hehe

    No need to worry about the town. You will have the time of your life. Forget what you know about campsites in general, as this will blow your mind.

    Just came back from Dijara and it is highly recommended! Great bush experience and good access to Khwai floodplains going towards North Gate - at the moment that looks like a real paradise.
    Ablutions are simple but effective and the owner looks after the water level in the tanks.
    Elephants and hippos visit the campsite at night and we also had one inquisitive hyena but it didn't give us any trouble.
    We did have to use the detour on the way there. We cleared one water crossing but the second one was a bit big so we headed for the detour.

    Funny about your experience with the meat from Spar (unless you bought it late in the day when the good stuff was all gone already).

    I was there in early July with 8 Czech photographers and we stopped at Spar in Maun to buy meat for the 2 nights we were spending in Moremi.

    Sirloin was on special at BWP 32.00 per kilo! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!!! I bought two decent pieces for myself and wanted some chicken to take south after the Moremi visit. The half a chicken I wanted to buy was more expensive that the two sirloins! And the steak was great, tasty and really tender. The visitors also bought some and said it was the best meat they had bought in Botswana.

    We bought ours early in the day, well before noon. When we went back at around 5pm the meat on display in the fridge was not good and the butchery was deserted, the butchery staff knock off at 5pm.

    I have found during my visits in Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia that the meat cuts out in the display fridges are generally the poorer types, with chuck ruling the roost, or maybe really thinly cut T bones. They cater for the local populous and they prefer thinner cuts with a bone in it. If however, you ask if they have rump or fillet in the back, they normally do have it and will cut real decent pieces for you.
