I started my trip from Boro (near Maun). If you can, try to get someone to come with you to bring the cost down. I became very familiar with the ¡§single supplement¡¨ while traveling alone in Botswana. Everything costs more if you are on your own, so find a friendfº
There are several options with the Mokoro, 3 days in the bush, day trips and half days. I decided to go for a day trip with a long hike in the afternoon. We departed Boro very early (to beat the heat) and began to glide through the massive papayas

In total, I spend 8hrs in the little canoe and it was toasty. If you are taking a Mokoro trip, make sure you bring lots of water and something to cover you, unfortunatly there is no protection from the hot African sun.
