    Default Kubu Island, Moremi, Khwai and Savuti. July trip to Botswana.

    This was a Dream come true trip for us.

    We drove from Lusaka Zambia to Kasane. Its a long drive 8hours, the only part where the rd is not that good is between Mazabuka and Kafue. In Kasana we stayed at the Big five Lodge. Great place for a overnighter, people are friendly, but lots of city sounds during the night. Next day, early departure to Nata Lodge, rd conditions, perfect, just watch out for the elephants and other wild life crossing the rd often.

    From Nata, we drove to Gweta and then turn South to Kubu Island. Here we met up with a group of Friends from SA who we traveld with for the next few days.

    Thanks for sharing, great footage and compilation.











    Just a caution here - drones are no longer allowed in Bots parks and to operate them you have to have the proper paper works from Civil Aviation and BOCRA (so be careful in spreading the info

    Great Video , do you know if one can drive from Savute to Ngosthaa and exit the park at Poha gate ? I see the T4A map says no entry at Poha but nothing about exit .

    A few infringements in the video I suspect?

    Drone usage being one of them?

    I think it says no entry at Poha because you can't pay there - it's like Ngoma gate - they give you a piece of paper saying you must pay at an entry gate that can accept payment. As far as I'm aware of you can exit at any gate if you have paid your entry fees - so if you have paid you can exit at Poha - just fill in the exit register.
