    Default Where to next, any suggestions?

    We a group of 2-4 vehicles(men only) that prefer to overland once a year, and sometime manages twice a year, below is a list of areas we have done in short, please suggest a route. What we love is campsites, but wild with still some shower/toilets but not necessary for a day or two, below some of the routes we did. We prefer wild animal environments. Think of a 10 day trip, 1-10 May, lots of driving, Pafuri, Gonrarezhou again, then how to get to Manapools, and some route back.


    1. Moremi, Khwai, Savuti, Kasane, Zambia to Vic Falls, Zim back to Kasane, Kubu
    2. Elephant Sands, Hunters (South), Hwange, Vic Falls, Kasane, Kubu
    3. Elephant Sands, Hunters (North), Kasane, Katimo, Caprivi, Bots Back (Ngepi), Moremi, Kubu
    4. Moremi, Khwai, Moremi, Kubu
    5. Mozambique, through Kruger (South), Marungulu, Paindane,
    6. Mozambique via Pafuri, Limpopo, Gonarezhou, Beit Bridge
    7. Twee Rivieren, Kgalagadi, Mabuasehube
    8. South Namibia up to Swakopmund

    Many other possibilities as well - I am sure others will respond.
    Answering the call of the wild is just so much beter than answering the telephone.

    Also going through planning for this year thanks to the Coronavirus we'll be doing two overland trips this year. So April May looks like Pafuri - Zinave -Inhassoro - Inhambane - Giriyondo - Home.
    September looks like Goo Moremi - Elephant Sands - Vic Falls- Zambezi National Park - Chobe - Khama Rhino Reserve - Home.

    We're particularly excited about visiting Zinave as we would like to track the impact of the introduction of elephants to this park by visiting it periodically over the next decade. We also get to travel along the majestic Save River which by all accounts should be flowing at that time of year. (Hopefully not as much as last year)

    Zinave will blow your mind. And you will be lucky to even see the elephant, for the next few years at least
