Going to Moremi soon – don’t

I found this report on the 4×4 forum:

“A quick update for all planning to go into the Moremi: The road from South Gate to North Gate is closed after a self drive got stuck for 1 1/2 days without anybody passing.

South Gate to 3 rd Bridge closed as impassable, 3rd Bridge campsite closed, Bodumatau loop closed, North Gate to Xakanaxa impossible, Black Pools a nightmare.

The only road still open is the straight one from South Gate to Xakanaxa but described as “very, very difficult with vehicles still stuck on it.

DWNP expects to have the park closed for the next 2 weeks.

And the weather forecast is rain”

So CKGR, Moremi and the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans are no go zones. The rain is wonderful, but bad for tourism – thank goodness this is the low season.

    Thanks for the update it’s always good to hear what’s going on. It was so dry when we were there in November.

    I am surprised the number of people that have been warned, have seen postings on various media & still go and do it anyway…

    Dear Pete & Sue:

    My name is Katy and I am one of your biggest fans. Thank you for your emails and updates. We are planing a trip to Namibia and Botswana with freind and are planning to spend 4 days in Botswana before going to Victoria Falls. From your writings we are convinced that we would like to spend a couple of nights in Ihaha campsite. But we don’t know how to go about making a reservation. Could you help me with this. Also where would you reccomand to stay (a lodge) in Kasane?.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Best regards, Katy

      Hi Katy

      Thank you for your kind comment. I am not great on lodges but there are so many up there and I am not sure on your budget. Do a search for Chobe hotels – all Chobe something are stunning.

      Regards
      Pete
