You're most welcome! I don't like flying either - even though I spent an unconscionable amount of my time doing it!! - but the Vic Falls companies are good and safe; our pilot was an air force officer. Wild Dogs will take you to an agency they use run by a very loud, energetic woman who will book the trip for you. It's very easy. Oh, by the way, when we got to Vic Falls - and the guides didn't know this either, so hadn't been able to warn us; it was a fairly recent thing - there was NO cash anywhere in town. Everything had to be paid for by card, from the excursions to a cup of coffee. Apparently, when Mugabe was finally forced out his pals dashed to the banks and removed all their ill-gotten gains before their assets could be frozen. Result - no paper money for anyone, anywhere. They may have corrected the situation now, but it's something to bear in mind.
If the optional game drive is the one in the Kalahari, at the first stop, then yes, we did. That was the one on which we saw meerkats! It was also the one where a storm broke loose as we were driving back to camp, and since we were in the two front seats we took all the sand, rain and grit in the face. :) Also saw lots of giraffe on that one. And the Etosha game drives are phenomenal, we saw an incredible amount of animals and birds (I love birds!) I did skip one evening one because I was tired; instead I went down to the water-hole at Okakuejo and watched elephant, rhino, kudu and giraffe coming to drink with a background of the most stunning sunset you can imagine. Magic.
