Chobe for sure needs in the summer. Vic Falls the consensus from most was that even in summer you don't 100% need,  but we did anyway.

To clarify, you are taking about Chobe's summer (our winter), right?

Right. In the forest and the woods it's found a lot more.

Well then I'm glad we lived to tell the tale. I won't advise anyone here what to do; I'm just telling them what we did and didn't do.

I would suggest you wait a few weeks and if you get no flu-like symptoms then you're fine.

Great TR and pics!

I'm doing my glitch trip in September.

How did you like Mango Airlines from JNB-CPT?

Flysafair is a bit cheaper trying to book the flight soon..

Thank you. You are in for an amazing adventure.

Mango was great. It was very cheap, but the airline itself did not feel cheap (ahem, Spirit/Frontierů). Would recommend.

Okay great. Mango seems a bit more legit.

Do you recall if there was a luggage fee?

Flysafair has a fee for luggage.

I don't recall off hand. Sorry. But you should be able to easily google that info.

Mango does not charge for the first piece of luggage. Same as Kulula another awesome low-cost there. Would recommend both of them.
