    Buenos dias Elena,
    Somos un grupo de españoles que tenemos intencion de realizar un viaje de turismo a Botswana, y tenemos pensado realizar un movil safari con John Casse. Agradeceria saber tu opinión y en que fecha estuviste allí.

    Hola Marta,

    Es difícil comentar sin saber sobre su interés y que desean obtener del viaje y de la experiencia. Les sugiero que lean los artículos sobre Botswana y John Chase ubicados en el portal principal
    http://simonandbaker.com/botswana.html
    http://simonandbaker.com/john_chase.html

    La gran mayoría de los artículos tiene la fecha en la que visitamos en la parte inferior de la página. Como veras en el artículo de John Chase nosotros estuvimos en safari con John Chase y su esposa en mayo de 2004.

    Si ya leíste los artículos lo te puedo agregar es que Botswana es un país maravilloso para los amantes de safaris fotográficos (acabamos de regresar de otro viaje a Bostwana) y nuestra experiencia con John Chase fue excelente. Al mismo tiempo en Botswana hay pocas comodidades de lujo como en otros países. En Sur África sobretodo hay muchos albergues de lujo de safari con todas las comodidades modernas.

    En general yo sugeriría al viajero que va a emprender en su primer viaje de safari una introducción inicial a través de un albergue o una tienda de campaña en lugar de un safari móvil. Si ya conocen la experiencia de safari o están acostumbrados a viajar con tienda de campaña entonces pueden apreciar mejor las ventajas de un safari móvil y la falta de lujos tendrá tal vez menor impacto.

    Les deseo un feliz viaje. Si se acuerdan al regreso cuéntenme como les va.

    I’ve been looking online over a few hrs currently, but under no circumstances found any type of attention-grabbing brief article just like yours. It truly is striking worth sufficient in my view. In my personal opinion, if pretty much all web owners and bloggers created excellent content materials you probably did, the online world will most likely be considerably more beneficial than everbefore.I’ll book mark this website !! Will surely browse again !! Thanks on your useful information and facts.
