Botswana National Parks wont allow you to enter at the gates witha 4x2.
They have a rule that it has to be a 4x4.
Did you manage to do the trip? I am also planning to drive but don't want to be shut out because of the car.
I think the least of your worries would be to get shut out.
A far greater possibility would be to get stuck if you don't have 4X4. It simply is not worth attempting, and you might not get too much sympathy from other travellers because they would risk getting into the same predicament while trying to help.
