Hi there :blonde: :blonde:
Would like to make arrangements for accommodation for this trip to avoid disappointment.
I did send through the price lists via the Whatsapp group, so please go and check them there and get back to me with the following:

Drosky cabins - Camping or chalet
Audi camp (2 nights) - Camping or units/tents
Number of people for booking

We would like to book, they will then require the deposits or full payment, but I will confirm on booking date.
Please come back to me asap, final date to advise will be 3rd December, thereafter I am going ahead with booking camping for everyone.

Furthermore, please confirm that you are still in for this trip, once accommodation is booked, you will either use it or loose it.

Thanks
Vanessa

Yo Graham, Tommie, e.a:
Things at Seronga has changed some .. Speak to me or Freddie to make arrangements for Seronga plse. [Assuming you iontend to sleep over at the Mission Station again ? ]

Not sure of "Wild Camp" before Seronga, but 78 Km is the distance from Ghudikwa to Seronga [Ghudikwa is Bushman Village] - that means you have to cross Silinda Spillway before dark between Khwai and said "wild camp" .. Taking 8 vehicles through the spillway may require some hours [depending on water level]
Oompie suggest you move "wild camp" to "Olifantspan" [38 km BEFORE the Silinda Spillway] That should give you daylight early morning to cross the Spillway. Then from Beetsha it is just 56 Km hard road to Seronga [Beetsha is the villagae after you pass Ghudikwa
If you can, refrain from taking drinking water before Seronga village [BRAK water by die ander dorpies]
BEST quality water that area is Ngarange [80 Km from Seronga]

Maar bel my vir navrae .. Was laasweek daar. Baie gereen, paai redelik murtu vir sleepwa. Behoort beter te wees teen April -- Die BRUG is in aanbou, maar julle sal seker nog moet Ferry gebruik om oor Okavango te kom na Shakawe en Drotsky's

Two spaces have become available for this trip .....
Who's in? Kom nou mense... trip of a lifetime especially for newbies who can enjoy Botswana in a group with fellow Patrollers.
Looks like last year's trip scared people away ... (Unprepared for the conditions, but now we know better :biggrin: :redface: )
This is great trip to see Botswana at it most natural and exciting.
Anyone interested please let us know as we are booking accommodation and having information get together soon. After that, the numbers are set.
Chris Skinner, I know you wanted to be on the maybe list ... Would you like to confirm?

Thanks so much (safe travels).
Vanessa
