    So excited for you Andre!

    A clarification though please :

    Mababe Trust has their OWN booking sheets this year and will do so solely as per their License agreements.
    You can book directly with them on [email protected].
    You can book through any botswana agent booking campsites in Botswana too as part of your itineraries (NDM, ourselves, etc etc ... )
    We do not have the sole bookings for Mababe but can book a campsite for you through them as per any agent.

    Good luck Andre and stay well!

    Tara

    So this is clear to me for future, you can do all the bookings, even Mababe?

    Are you the sole agent for any of the sites? Which ones?

    thanks

    According to this NDM are the sole booking agents. I'm confused now.

    Hi Andre
    That is great news to know that you will help to managed all these campsites.

    Can you please provide a comparison between the three camps?

    We have a booking at Dizhana for next year, but would like to know how it compares to the other camps especially looking at wildlife.

    Thanks for your help.

    Clarification : (I have the Mababe Trust Board members here with me) :

    Mababe Trust will be holding their OWN booking sheets for all three of their campsites and will be running these campsites from their office themselves (licensing rules, which Tourism will be checking)
    There is no external management or booking contracts or agreements with any other companies.

    Dizhana is currently licensed and open. Dijara and Tshaa will be rebuilt soon (and then inspected by tourism and hopefully licensed too in the future so they can start to book for 2018)
    Andre will be managing the campsites out in the bush for the Mababe Trust and we hope he'll be posting his amazing photos for us again soon! Good luck Andre, we're so happy for you.

    NDM will be booking the Mababe sites with the Mababe Trust. As will any other booking agent for Botswana. (ourselves included).

    Yes Katanga, we can book any campsites or lodge in the whole country. And will book (and pay Mababe Trust directly) for each booking we do with them - as per any other operator/lodge/campsite we deal with. We will not be taking Mababe campsite bookings one at a time, (we will refer clients to Mababe Trust to book one booking themselves) but we will be booking the campsites with mababe ourselves as part of a route/itinerary that we will be doing for clients (for our P500 booking fee).

    Really good news!

    I'm sure you're aware of it, but if not - I crossed into Bots yesterday at Martins drift and see theres a notice stuck on the wall at the payment window saying dijara is closed etc.
    Remember to get that removed when you open.

    Great to hear Andre is back in his bush! However, I had a look at NDM Website: www.ndmtravelagency.com but there are no mention of these three camps! Andre, you beter get your Facebook running again and make a note on it where to book! Hope to visit you soon.

    Please can you confirm that people won't be sharing campsites. Were the previous multiple bookings for campsites not under Mababe Trust management

    Hi Hylton , et al

    Just point of clarification.

    All bookings will be done by Mababe Trust Management, we as NDM Travel Agency do bookings via them, they will be having all the booking sheets and allocating the sites, we have just secured some bookings for next year with them.

    for 2017, other campsites are not yet operational, only Dizhana Campsite is up and running, they will let us know as soon as Tshaa and Dijara are re-openened, probably mid to end of November.

    So you may email us at the below email address for further bookings.

    Sorry for late.reply , not the best network reception at Dizhana .I also apologise for any confusion around this booking agents issue .
    Tara and Maile are correct in the info they have given .I can assure people that I will be keeping a very close eye on these bookings at the Trust office so to insure no double bookings happen again .For now Tshaa and Dijara still remain closed but I am starting on Monday to clean up and get tourist board inspection done asap .Face Book page is up and running under my name for now , till such time as all 3 camps are up and running .FB page Andre De Jager. Will have daily up dates on it .
    Thank you Tara for your kind words and all of you who have supported us in the past and to those who are planning to do so .
    Cheers for now
    Andre
