    Default Hwange and Matopos in March - To book or not to book?

    Hey everyone,
    after spending some mud-time in Botswana last March, we are now looking to go camping in Hwange, Vic Falls and Matopos this year. As the booking with Zimparks is such a nightmare (4 out of 5 mails I sent could not be delivered + bank transfer fees +......), I am wondering if booking is neccesary for the green season? Dates will 22nd to 30th.
    I would not pay for exclusive campsites anyway but rather try to get one when we are there, so I guess Sinamatella, Main Camp and Maleme Camp do not need booking in advance?
    I'm happy for any advice!

    If your dates fall over Easter or the Zim School holidays you may have a problem at Main Camp and Sinematella but most likely you'll be able to find space.

    ...Motopos is quite popular these days - as said if over Easter or School Holidays you would probably want to book there.

    It will be before ZA school holidays start and before public holidays over easter weekend.
    I got an email from Zimparks, saying it will be fine to go and not book in advance... So hopefully it will be alright!
    Thanks!
