I will be in Botswana next July. I will reach Maun with bus from Gaborone on Jul. 22, I intend to prebook some cheap accommodation (single tent with bed) at some backpackers, but I’m unsure to do the same with safari. What I would like is the typical 7/8 days budget semi participated safari which ends in Kasane, and goes to Moremi, Savuti, Northern Chobe. Budget is 1500 Eu.
I read many threads here, which were very helpful, then asked some quotations to the recommended agencies, then I found others on the Botswana Tourist Board website, and others on the Botswana Guides Association. Did quite a lot of homework, and got a few replies. More will come in the next days, I suppose.
Apart from this, at the moment my big doubt is : is it really necessary to reserve in advance?
I am traveling alone. Will I easily find some group to join and leave one or two days after my arrival? That is peak season, I plan to sleep at Okavango River Lodge or Old Bridge, I think there will be loads of people around
Thank you for your help
