Hello, this is Lars (37) and my wife Romy (32) from Germany. We're just now having a sabbatical and are traveling through some African countries for 8 months. We had a 4x4 rented in Uganda and that was a fairly easy task (pls ask for infos!). So the next longer road trip will lead us through Namibia and Botswana for 5 weeks. Ok so here's my newbie question (and it really is one): what we have not understood yet is how people find small groups to travel together. This might sound silly but if we just go to a campsite and find people who roughly have our direction, wouldn't we still take very different routes according to the widespread campsites? But finding people with a matching itinerary before starting the trip doesn't seem realistic, neither.
Btw. we'll be at DQAE near Ghanzi on the 4 March and go on through KCGR before heading north towards Moremi, Nxai Pan, Makgadikgadi, Kasane and on to Caprivi, Etosha.
Newest regards from Romy and Lars
