Botswana trip – Kaziikini

After our mishap we had to spend a few days in Maun to get us back on track. Since we were skipping Savuti and Moremi we were looking for a campsite not too far from Maun since we needed to return in a few days.

We decided on Kaziikini which turned out to be a real gem.

Some pics of the great Riley’s hotel in Maun.

Kaziikini is a community run campsite and in the days we spend there we had the whole place for ourselves. Peace and quiet is the name of the game with regular visits from the Ellies and other animals.

The birdlife is second to none and many first time spots were recorded by Charmain.

The showers and toilets were of the open sky variety and an absolute pleasure to use.

We did drove one day to Moremi but did not see much in comparison to our camp spottings.
