    Default Moremi / Savuti cost/condition/availability

    Dear All,

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    I try to find information on 3 topics.
    1) road conditions in June in the mentioned area
    2) concession fees
    3) fuel and water

    We are experienced traveling Botswana, but never tried Moremi and Savuti in June. I know that conditions are changing year by year, but in average, what to expect? Is that area dry in June or still wet or just becoming wet? Any advice is appreciated.

    About the concession fees, I am absolutely not sure. Coming from Kasane via Savuti stopping Khwai into Moremi and to Maun. Where do I need to pay a daily fee and where not and where to pay it?

    I guess fuel and water will be available in Kasane and Maun only, or?

    Many, many thanks for your help and advise!

    Kind regards,

    Meike

    The areas you mentioned are booked well in advance, especially Savuti and Moremi. Have you made your reservations already, before we advise on road conditions.

    If you don't have booking for June then might as wel forget it as its a pretty busy period. I did 30 days in 2018 between May and June and the weather and roads were perfectly fine.

    I see you are in Hamburg - I am also in Hamburg every week and happy to meet for a coffee to discuss in detail if you would like more input. Just PM me.

    thanks

    There is a Puma fuel station at Muchenje, I fueled there in November. There is no other fuel between there and Maun.

    There is water at Ihaha, Savuti, Khwai and the Moremi campsites. Whether it's good drinking water is another question, we only drank the Savuti water, with no ill effects.
