Botswana October 18 - November 02 2013
South Africa November 2-6

A fantastic 3 week trip, where 2 weeks were spent in northern Botswana. The Okavango delta and the Moremi, Savuti and Chobe reserves were visited (there are no fences in reserves, just a legal protection). 12 days wild camping among the animals, even if some nights between the reserves were spent in more organized camps. The trip ended at the Victoria Falls in Zambia/Zimbabwe.

During the trip we used mokoros (wooden canoes), doing walks in the area and most time we travelled using open jeeps. The drivers/guides were very skilled. We saw a lot of animals, including the big five, and by camping in the free we got more opportunities to see animals. Evenings/mornings were fantastic.

Temperature around 35-40 degrees Celsius in the days, around 20 in the nights. Only some small rains.

The trip was organized by Äventyrsresor, using Sunway Safaris.

After this we had a 4 day private tour, going by car, in the Cape area around Cape Town.
