         They began their trip at the Thamalakane River Lodge and then moved on to the Central Kalahari Game Reserve. From there they moved on to the Nxai Pan National park.  They saw the famous Baines Baobabs and African wild dogs and baby hyenas and a leopard.
         From there they moved on to the Chobe National Park and the Chobe River and finished up at Victoria Falls.  There they saw lots of zebras and many beautiful birds.
         What was unique about this was that it was a self-drive and therefore, highly economical, trip costing perhaps half of what it might have cost to go on a guided safari.
