An amazing adventure once again!, put together by Vincent, Julie, Bame and the team at Tawana! We can’t thank them enough!
This is the second time I’ve had the privilege of using Tawana Self Drive, and yet again their service was faultless from start to finish! Everything was perfect, from the route planning, Staying in Chobe River Cottage in Kasane, the campsites and the lovely break in Maun halfway through our trip, booking a sunset river boat trip on the Chobe, (thank you Bame!) which was stunning! And Victoria Falls, which is awesome! and despite some negative news reporting, is in full flow! The huge mass of wildlife along the Chobe river is incredible!
We rented two Landcruiser trucks which were perfect, and essential at this time of year! The tracks can become very muddy!
We met a poor French guy and his girlfriend at Southgate (Moremi) who had been stuck on the track to Third Bridge for Three days! They’d rented a smaller 4×4 from one of the bigger rental companies, that didn’t even have decent off road tyres! Luckily for them, (as it is very quiet this time of year) a local guy stumbled across them and they were rescued! Don’t take the chance! Take the Landcruiser in the rainy season!
This time around, after travelling southern Africa since 2007, we got to see Wild Dogs (Painted Dog) such a privilege! And for me personally was a lifelong goal! A massive thrill!
Thank you all at Tawana, for once again putting together a wonderful and life changing trip!
Every time I leave Africa, I leave a little piece of my heart behind!
See you all next year!
