We booked the n'Watin'Wambu wilderness trail on April 16 and apparently we're the only ones until now. At least 4 people are needed for the trail to take place. If no extra people show interest, our trip might be cancelled. So if anyone would like to join us, we would be delighted :-)

Hi Frizzle

I am searching for information on this trail and am battling to find anything. Do you have a link I can go to?

Always wanted to do a trail and had it on our list for the next year but might be worth looking into now.

Thank Lesley

I believe this trail temporarily replaces Metsi Metsi while the latter camp is being refurbished ?

Actually Bush Baptist, I figure Lesley Wilson and I are distant leopard cousins :lol:

Last week I got an update from Stephens Ledwaba saying that Sanparks are actually relocating the Metsi camp not renovating or upgrading. Currently they are still in the planning phase of the project so the process will take longer than intially foreseen. Should I have known this before, I could have switched to another camp but now everything is fully booked on 16/4.

n'Watin'Wambu camp is a temporary fly camp. It doesn't seem to be very popular. Unlike the former Metsi camp, the temporary fly camp apparently is situated in an area of thick bush, so guests assume they are going to see less. It remains a matter of luck though, but for me the most important thing about the trail camps is to get away from it all, preferably in good company :P

When I did the Metsi last year we saw less than on the Bushman trail the year before and because of the poaching we could not do any hiking towards the Mozambican border, so we kind of automatically ended up on the tourist roads, which of course is not ideal and not what a wilderness trail is about, so maybe that's why Sanparks decided to change the location of the Metsi camp.

I still hope to get a group together to do this trail on 16/4 and if not I've got a back-up plan (staying at CB) and I'll do this trail some other time.

Hi Frizzle

Would it be okay if I PM you for a bit of a chat sometime. I have done some research and made some enquiries and very keen to "go for it" but need to sort through a few logistics very quickly.

I have a few questions that you might be able to help me with which might short cut a huge portion of our concerns.

Thanks
Lesley

sure! I checked again with Reservations and at the moment there's only us (2 pax) who want to do the trail - the minimum is 4.
