    Default Dijara ; Dizhana ; Tshaa ; Mababe Trust Wilderness camp sites

    It is with great pleasure to announce Dijara and Tshaa camp sites will be up and running in the next few weeks .As of Monday 16th Oct I will be staying at Dizhana to oversee operations there .Thank you to the Mababe Trust and community for putting their faith in me to manage and market all 3 camp sites .I trust this is good news to all of my fellow forum members .Booking can be made via NDM travel and adventures Botswana .Maile is the manager and owner and is an officer and a gentleman .I have gotten to know Maile well over the past few months and he is ready and waiting to be of service to this forum .I have explained to him how things must work , and speedy responses are expected at all times .Any complaints and queries can be directed to me . NDM are the sole booking agents for our 3 camps .Thank you once again for the support you people have given me at Dijara .

    Hi Andre,

    Congrats to the success and your perseverance paying off, great news for the whole area.
    I've just dealt with Maile and he responded with confidence.

    I wish you well in your endeavour, unfortunately, I have now booked at Khwai Community for the 18 Nov but I am sure we stay in touch.

    Good luck for the re-start




    P.s. I am sure you have read the small print this time

    Well done Andre in getting these sites back. It gives me more confidence in the Bots authorities.
    The alternatives in Zambia are all non starters due to the political situation there thus very happy you could rescue your investment in Dijara.

    Hopefully one day I would be able to visit!

    Congratulations and wishing you the best.

    Does this mean we can expect no multiple bookings? I have booked 3 nights next year at Dizhana and am hopeful that I am not cramped into a campsite with multiple occupants, taking away the experience of the wild I am coming for.

    Congratulations Andre! In August I had a sneak peak Dijara while we were camping in Dizhana. Saw the whiteboard in the bar area with columns and rows for campsite# and date of the month. It's so plain and simple, easy to use system that eliminates the possibility of double bookings completely. Please show that to the rest of Botswana so that they can learn how a booking system should look like Hope to meet you in person on our next trip. Good luck with all the hard work ahead, and know that we all wish we had your office space!

    Ha ha , yes that is the best office in the world .It works very simple that method if you have a booking agent also looking after the interest of the clients and mine .As long as I am around and have got some form of control , then double bookings will never happen .

    Very pleased to hear that Andre. Had a bad experience at Dizhana with people just loaded onto a site. Glad you are back.
