I booked a Safari through the Booking Company (they were the ONLY people that could help me get one this time of the year) and ended up traveling with Maun Rest Camp (Great people and tour).
We departed Maun early on the 27th for our long drive to Savuté (Chobe National Park). The drive was littered with Wild life. Just out side Maun we spotted a pack of Wild Dogs beating the pants of a Hyena. With this kind of action 15mins into the trip, I knew it was going to be good
The activities are very different when if comes to bush camping. The first that I had a hard time with was 1) No Exercise. You can't just go for a stroll in the park. Besides the fact it is prohibited, you would have to be mad to go for a jog at 5am. Anything that runs in this park is literally dinner. So, most of the day consisted of driving. Which is really a great way to see a tone of game in a short period but you start to feel sluggish by day 5.
