    Default Our 1st Botswana overland trip - 1-13 April

    Hey guys,

    I just want to thank this community folk for all the shared info regarding Botswana and how, where, and when best to travel through this really special and inviting country.

    We had a great trip from the 1st of April to the 13th of April, thanks mainly in part, I recon to the rains falling late.

    Trip Itinerary and summary:
    Day 1 we traveled to Khama Rhino Sanctuary and had the camps almost to ourselves, although each campsite is almost secluded - great facility and excellent wildlife numbers. A great way to ease into the trip.
    Day 2 we traveled to Kubu Island, & the Makgadikgadi Pans were dry. A very special and mystical place Kubu island is, but we were beaten by the wind. Still very enjoyable. Off the grid camping and stayed away from long drop.
    Day 3 we traveled to Planet Baobab, a great pool and bar welcomes stop over visitors, but the campsites lack individual privacy, 2 campsites per campsite. Great communal ablution facilities and a stand out pool area.
    Day 4 we traveled through Maun, stopping for lunch and a re-stock across the board. Don't forget wood when travelling into the reserves. We headed to South Gate campsite.
    Day 5 we had a rest day and enjoyed a game drive where leopard was spotted just 3kms from camp. Elephant visited us in the campsite - special. A bit of noise from the camp tenders as their camp was fairly close to ours.
    Day 6 we headed for Khwai - Magotho. The best days drive, with scenic changes from Mopani to fantastic riverine eco-systems. Magotho is special plain and simple. First time there and will be back many times over
    Day 7 we enjoyed Magotho with game drives and plenty ellies visiting camp, some a mere 10 m from where we sat. Words just don't do this place justice.
    Day 8 we traveled North to Linyanti. Tough and very sandy drive, but the 2.2 XL ranger surprised me for sure. A long day and we were greeted by wild dogs on entering camp. The vista is scenic, but be careful for sausage trees
    Day 9 we traveled through smaller section of thick sand, saved some bogged down tourists, only to arrive late at Ihaha where we were greeted by 800 buffalo - WOW! Awesome campsite with ablution facility needing some TLC
    Day 10 we traveled to Vic Falls, with the hopes of going to Hwange. The heavens opened up proper and we were unable to travel forward. Hwange was missed, but great reason to go back.

    Conclusion:
    * Always buy your wood piles before entering the reserves - at the campsites they cost up to 5 X more
    * Take an excellent cooler box for ice storage, and buy solid Ice Blocks - they last longer
    * Magotho seems to be in the process of building ablution blocks, that are distanced from camps - I don't know how I feel about this addition to what can only be described as a very remarkable place.
    * Always be careful around the campsites in the evenings, be vigilant and non-complacent of the possibility to being visited by the various cats, ellies, hippos and hyenas. Use your torch sparingly and enjoy your campfires.
    * Burn bones and any left over foods, or pack away tightly in fridges and cooler boxes.
    * Leave the campsites and bush as you found it, clean of all litter, tidy and as natural & unspoiled as one can - make an effort.

    Botswana is very welcoming, and is just how I remembered it growing up and spending 19 years there. Not much has changed in 30 years, which I think is great from a returning travelers POV.
    Larger towns have grown somewhat and good to see police and soldiers active and on the move.
    Wildlife sightings are excellent, with numbers where they should be, however, there is a noticeable explosion of the elephant population and this has had an affect, I think, to the Chobe eco-systems. The reserve seems under pressure, with erosion having an impact on the Northern part of the reserve.

    Watch our video here if you are keen.

    Keep well and enjoy.

    Howsit, thanks for the comment and positive feedback, much appreciated.

    I own a production company called Punch Club Studio, so I use Adobe Premiere Pro for editing, for design Adobe Photoshop and illustrator, for overlays and animated graphics I use Adobe After Effects. For 3D opening graphic I used Cinema 4D. Go check out the work I and my team create over at http://www.punchclubstudio.com
    Everything created and produced by myself. An amazing amount of work, so thanks for acknowledgments.

    Cheers

    Also as an overlay hand drawn route on Map of Botswana.
    What would you be looking for?
    Not familiar with sharing T4A maps, but let me know what will work for you.
    I will upload a photo of the initial overlay drawing - hi res.

    Thanks for the nice trip report, especially the video. Great looking Ranger.

    It is quite easy to share your routes, track, waypoints etc. using Basecamp. So you are not sharing the map, but just your trip information that someone can open regardless of what map they have. Either select the relevant list with all the information you need to share or select the individual items (by holding down the Ctrl key when selecting). Once you have selected what you want, go to File then select Export. It will then give you the option to change the file name, location and type of export. You can export to GPX or GDB for someone else to open in Basecamp or Mapsource for that matter. I cannot remember which one, but one of the formats save a smaller file but still with sufficient information. Alternatively you can save it as a KML/KMZ file for use with Google Earth. Incidentally you can also import GPX/GDB Garmin files directly into Google Earth.

    PS. If you need more assistance, you are welcome to look at the Basecamp Tips & Tricks thread or PM me if you want.

    Cheers.

    Picture of overlay map would be good. I can always recreate in T4A.

    Thank you for the excellent trip report and video.
    How essential is it to have a 4x4 for this trip? I have the Ranger 2x4 towing an Afrispoor Cheetah and would love to do a trip like this or similar.

    Hi Davian,

    It (4x4) is not essential, but I would recommend it, especially when towing a trailer.

    You are safe all the way up to Magotho, which falls under the Khwai Community trust and is surrounded by Savuti on one side and the Moremi on the other.
    However, there are some sandy spots, in both the Moremi and Savuti reserves that will bogg you down without 4x4, regardless of towing or not.
    The BIG sand I found is on the cutline to Linyanti and then from Linyanti to Chobe - this will be impassable with a 2X4 towing or not. The sandy stretches are heavy going and long distanced. our episode 3 will show how the Kalahari sands can trap you.

    I did this trip to recce a future trip for my tribe and to see where to avoid when towing our Conqueror Companion. I think the 4x4 would have battled with these major sand sections.
    It is the middle mannetjie that will get you, so my bigger tyres helped, and momentum, but otherwise with a trailer that weighs a tonne when fully loaded will be allot of hard work, and you will get stuck - FOR SURE. The 2.2 just doesn't have enough grunt and or enough momentum, for long stretches of sand when towing I think. We got stuck without towing . . .

    If travelling alone, get a winch with load bearing of 12000 lbs, 4 X recovery tracks to help all fours to grip when towing. We took a sat phone which we rented from TuffStuf, I would recommend to anyone to do the same thing for peace of mind.

    Try travel in convoy and remain aware of the fact that Sh** happens, so be prepared. Get reliable and good recovery gear, an inflatable 4 tonne air jack works a treat, recovery straps, strong shackles, and spade.

    Hope this helps, and by no means is my opinion absolute, it is just what I experienced with sand only, the rains were late, so bear that in mind too - travel in dry months.

    Cheers

    Thanks so much Ryan, I do not want to push my luck. I either need to amend the route or upgrade the tow vehicle (reluctant to do so just for one or two trips). Looking forward to your next instalments.
    Regards

    Take a look at "Stage 2" of our most recent adventure through Botswana.
    Traveling from planet Baobab through to Maun, and then on to South Gate Maqwee campsite for 2 nights.
    We carry on and travel up to the Magotho Khwaai Community trust campsite, which quite simply put "Is a special place."
    What a privilege and an amazing part of our trip.

    Hopefully our adventures will answer your questions to doing the same trip.

    Enjoy the visuals and our thoughts.
