  1. Thanks Tom. We do have a guide.
  2. Thanks Tom. Did they drive to Kidepo or by plane. We will be driving to Kidepo, staying in Pian Upe and visit Karamojan people for 3 days, that's why I am more concerned about the warnings. I would be less concerned if I were alone with my guide.
  3. Dear ST friends. I am about to go to Uganda next month. We will be driving to Kidepo valley via. Karamojan area. Next Murchinson falls, Kibale, Bwindi. Although my Safari operator says it is safe. I am a little concerned. I see warnings about especially Karamojan Area and close to South Sudan. Since I am traveling with my daughters I more concerned. Does any of you know how the situation is in northeast Uganda and would any of you advise me not to drive around that area. I appreciate you answer. Cheers Michael
  4. Allmost every day I dream of leaving the modern life I live in Denmark and travel around southern and Eastern Africa - buying and old Land Rover or Land cruiser with a rooftop tent and drift around. For now I do 2-3 weeks - but maybe one day I leave the concrete jungle and live the dream. Maybe ST should make a forum where people like me who often travel alone can join together on Safari - self drive or guided trips. I would love to participate with for instance people from SA on a self drive to Mana pools or Kgalagadi. Cheers Michael
  5. Thank you "Timon" for letting us enjoy your wonderful trip. I want to do a self drive in the future in Botswana and Namibia. I just need to find people to join me.
  6. I agree with madaboutcheetah - mobile camping in Botswana is one of the most authentic ways to explorer the bush. I allways do bush camping. You are close to nature and alone with only your family around you. I recommend Unlimited Tours and Safari with Moses Ntema and his wonderful staff. They recently won mobile touroperator of the year in Botswana. You can read my Tripreport from 2015 with UTS. Friends of mine just returned from a trip with UTS and they were extremely satisfied with their safari - saying it was the trip of their lives.
  7. Just read this on FB. My deepest condolences too their families and humble thanks to all the people that fight the war against poaching. 😢https://www.facebook.com/AfricanParks/posts/964376760364996
  8. Just read this on facebook - wow they were lucky. Thank god. https://www.facebook.com/TheLastLions/posts/1427297207293811
  9. Offcause we expect a trip report before end of April. I will start a crowd funding on safari talk, so I can join you next year. Safe trip.
  10. Botswana dont cluster lodges in Moremi, Savuti, Kalahari, although there are some ect. They are spread out on vast private concessions in the delta catering the upmarket clientele, but still with a lot of wilderness feeling. Tanzania, and especially Kenya is going berserk on smaller areas like in the Mara. Ruaha recently got a new lodge, spoling me and many others favorite special campsite Mbagi at Mwagusi river. We are still some people despite 50+ who loves to camp wild - be it simple or Craig van Zyl style. It is getting more and more difficult due to most people's need to have all necessaties on vacation.
  11. Well I guess we have to live with the fact that all big game areas in Africa will end up like Yosemite, Maasai Mara- beautiful - but tons of people.
  12. Oh no - not another lodge. There are enough lodges in Selous. Sad.
  13. Thanks Paolo - It would be an honor to meet him one day - what a magnificent animal he is.
  14. @@Paolo - Maybe you have the answer. Boswell has some very impressive tusks - how far away from Mana pools does he roam. As far as I know, elephant hunting is still allowed in Zimbabwe - some moron with a lot of money might kill him, if he wanderers into a hunting concession.
