Namibia-Botswana round trip


Recommended Posts

July 1, three friends and myself are embarking on a 18-day Nam-Bot round trip through Mabuasehube, CKGR and Khaudum/Nyae Nyae. We're fairly familiar with driving and travel distances in Namibia, but Botswana is a new chapter for most of us (although two of us have visited the Delta and the northern parks before).


Our itinerary is Windhoek - Buitepos/Mamuno - Mabuasehube - Ghanzi - CKGR (Passarge Pan - Deception Pan - Sunday Pan) - Maun - Dobe border post - Tsumkwe - Windhoek.

Well be travelling in two well equipped Landcruiser 76s.


I wondered how long it takes us to drive from Mamuno to Mabuasehube Main Entrance? Is the main entrance on the East or the North side of the park? And what is the most efficient route from Mamuno to Mabua?


Should we turn right right after the border post and take the gravel road to Kule and Ncojane or should we follow the A2 to Kang and then take off towards Hukuntsi and then drive south from there?


Our plan is to leave Windhoek early in the morning on July 1st, get as far as possible, camp along the way and reach Mabua sometime during the 2nd of July. Doable?
